Hempel Antifoul Classic 71220 Paint 2.5L TRUE BLUE

Hempel´s Classic 71220 is an efficient polishing (erodible) antifouling providing good protection all season.

As an antifouling for boats of glass fibre, wood, plywood and steel.

Hempel Classic Antifoul 2.5ltr is a soft, tin free antifoul which can be used on boats of glass fibre, wood, plywood steel and ferr-cement.

A high quality antifoul from a brand leader, it's set at a great price, making it a superb budget option. An antifouling of the soluble matrix type, it's highly effective in both cold and temperate waters.

Recommended for use with Thinners no. 3 Gives coverage per litre of 11.2m2.

Hempel's Classic antifouling is perfect for boats operating mainly in cold waters and can reduce fuel consumption by 4%. The application can cover 11 metres square per litre and will take four hours to dry if applied at 20C. Drying times double at a drop of 10C and halve at a rise of 10C.

You can apply the antifoul via a spray, a roller or a paint brush. If you are using a roller or a paint brush more coats may be needed to achieve the correct thickness. Once complete and the antifoul is dry, you can put the vessel back into water straight away, although we recommend you wait 24 hours. This may need to be delayed by two to three days in cold temperatures or up to two weeks in direct sun. The substance will change to its final colour one week after being exposed to water.
