Epoxy Application Guides

WARNING: ALL INSTRUCTIONS ARE BASED ON A TEMPERATURE OF 72 - 80⁰F. T
HICKER APPLICATIONS AND WARMER TEMPERATURES WILL MAKE THE EPOXY CURE FASTER. 
THINNER APPLICATIONS AND COOLER TEMPERATURES WILL MAKE THE EPOXY CURE SLOWER. 
WE DO NOT RECOMMEND USING EPOXY BELOW 65⁰F.



Fasco 9XN-2000 Super Slick

Coverage:

One gallon covers approximately 120 sq ft. Based on average 2 to 4 mils thick.
One quart covers approximately 30 sq ft. Based on average 2 to 4 mils thick.

Preparation:

For Fiberglass:
Wipe down with denatured alcohol to remove any wax present. On an older hull, you can use dish soap and water.
Once wiped down, you can sand the area you are working with 60 to 80 grit sand paper. Make sure to wipe off any dust after sanding.

For Aluminum:

Wipe down with an aluminum brightener. Lightly etch the surface.
Be sure to follow the instructions given on product you chose. 
Etching reduces the prep time and gives you a better bond than just sanding. 
If you want to just sand the area, use 60 to 80 grit sand paper.

Mixing:

This is a crucial part to making sure the product will cure properly.
NEVER use a power mixer when mixing this product.
Proper mixing will require boxing the mix.
This is when you mix the two parts in the first pail, then pour the mixed product into a second pail.
Always be sure to scrape the sides and bottom as you mix.
When pouring the first pail into the second, direct the pour into the middle while scraping the sides and bottom.
Now mix the second pail thoroughly making sure the product looks uniform with no streaks.
This technique will ensure a proper mix. Mix only what you can apply in 15 minutes.
Leaving the mixture in the pail will reduce the working time you have, heat up and start to harden.

Application:

 You can roll, brush, or use a spreader, putty knife or trowel.  Do one half of the hull at a time. 
Pour the mixed batch down the center line of the hull from bow to stern, then work from the center line to the side or chime of the hull. 
Use a squeegee, brush, or roller to get an even layer over half of the hull. 
Fasco Epoxies, Inc. recommends taking a large brush and "tipping" from bow to stern. 
Then start at the bow and go down the length of the boat again, overlapping about a quarter of an inch, working your way from the center of the boat to the outer edge.
If any brush strokes are visible, they will be in a bow to stern orientation and not affect the performance of the boat.
Repeat the same method on the other side of the hull.
Applying two coats is enough. When applying the second coat, do it while the first coat is still sticky.
If the first coat cures, you will have to wash the amine blush off and sand it down before applying the second coat.

Pigment:

If you are using pigment, mix it thoroughly into part 2, before mixing the two parts together.
Do not use more than 1 oz. per quart.

Warning: 

Do not apply to hot surface.
Do not apply to surfaces below 65 degrees
Do not apply when the product is starting to gel.
