- 1.1 Typical use of coastal AF 38 Anti-Fouling Paint
Coastal AF 38 Anti-Fouling Paint is a one component antifouling coating based on ion exchange technology. It provides cost efficient fouling protection. This is achieved by self polishing characteristics reducing hull deterioration. To be used as finish coat in immersed environments only. Suitable on approved primers and tie coats on aluminium, carbon steel and wooden substrates.
Typical use of coastal AF 38 Anti-Fouling Paint
Recommended for under water hull in drydocking. The product can be used for long service periods up to 24 months as a part of a complete coating system.

Surface preparation summary
Substrate : Coated surfaces
- New tie coat or new antifouling : Remove any contamination that could interfere with the intercoat adhesion.Exceeding maximum recoat intervals will require cleaning/abrading and/or application of additional coats, depending on condition
- Aged antifouling with leached layer : Removed by thorough fresh water washing at minimum nozzle pressure 200 bar.
- New tie coat or new antifouling : Remove any contamination that could interfere with the intercoat adhesion.Exceeding maximum recoat intervals will require cleaning/abrading and/or application of additional coats, depending on condition.
- Aged antifouling with leached layer : Removed by thorough fresh water washing at minimum nozzle pressure 340 bar.
The product can be applied by
Spray : Use airless spray.
Brush : Recommended for stripe coating and small areas. Care must be taken to achieved the specified dry film thickness
Roller : Recommended. Care must be taken to achieve the specified dry film thickness.

For maximum overcoating intervals, refer to the Application Guide(AG) for this product.
Drying and curing times are determined under controlled temperatures and relative humidity below 85%, and at average of the DFT range of the product.
Surface (touch) dry : The state of drying when slight pressure with a finger does not leave an imprint or reveal tackiness.
Dry to over coat, minimum : The recommended shortest time allowed before the next coat can be applied.
Dried/cured for immersion : Minimum time before the coating can be permanently immersed in sea water.
Temperature Continuous Peak
Dry, atmospheric 60oC 90oC
Immersed, sea water 40OC 40OC
Peak temperature duration max.1 hour.
The themperatures listed relate to retention of protective properties. Aesthetic properties may suffer at these temperatures.
Note that the coating will be resistant to various immersion temperatures depending on the specific chemical and whether immersion is constant or intermittent. Heat resistance is influenced by the total coating system. If used as part of a system, ensure all coatings in the system have similar heat resistance.
Depending on the actual exposure of the coating system, various primers and topcoats can be used in combination with this product. Some examples are shown below. Contact Jotun for specific system recommendation.
Previous coat : epoxy shop primer, inorganic zinc silicate shop primer, epoxy, epoxy mastic, inorganic zinc silicate
Subsequent coat : polyurethane, epoxy.
