Inter Protect 3000

I live in Toronto, Ontario. I have taken the bottom paint off the boat and I am going to apply a barrier coat before using anti-fouling paint. Has anyone used Interprotect 3000? My concern is the ability to apply the paint in cold temperatures. 3000 can be applied in above 0 temperatures.

Re: Inter Protect 3000

Looks like the 3000 is much thicker, 80% solids compared to 45% for the 2000, therefore harder to apply. As per forum link below, you'll still need one coat of 2000 before you apply the bottom paint anyway.
Not sure what the 3000 prices are, but I would wait a bit longer (warmer) and use only the 2000 - widely available and widely used.

Re: Inter Protect 3000

Before you go with a barrier coat, be real sure the hull is dry so you won't trap moisture.
I believe that is a good way to get the "pox".

Re: Inter Protect 3000

My boat is in the same situation.

I have removed all the old bottom paint etc. and applying all new this spring.

The person doing it has been doing this for many years and probably the most respected fibreglass, gelcoat, paint and everything else to do with the hull of a fibreglass boat in eastern Ontario & New York state.

He told me that he will not do anything until the temperature has been at least +10 for a week.

That will ensure the hull is dry and up to temperature.

He said he prefers it to be above +15, but that depends on so many things, such as when I want to re-commission my boat and how many boats he has lined up.

It may take 6 months to a year or more for a hull to dry, and with our climate here, this is very hard to achieve, unless it is inside and warm year'round. I also have stripped my boat of antifouling and it is drying before I apply the Interprotect, ...it is drying for 4 years so it should be ready to receive a barrier coat and keep the laminate dry for a while, I hope. BTW it is 1967 vintage with no blisters and I intend to keep it that way.

As for the paint's working temperature, the best (and only) way is to follow the instructions in the material data sheet (MDS).
