That was rolled, waterblasted clean pretty easily then a wet sand with sanding screens and re-apply.

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

Would micron 66 go over sanded Copper epoxy? West with Current powder spheres.
Probably a question for IP.

 

I applied Micron 66 over Coppercoat with great results, good finish and it seemed to stay active for far longer than any subsequent recoats on our R930

Was that before or after they changed the formula of M66?

That was early Micron 66, subsequent coats didn't seem to have the same punch as far as staying clean. But adhesion and finish on the Coppercoat (which was next to useless) was great!

The idea of using different colours was so that the skipper could tell when the fresh stuff was getting close to being gone. The older coat would start showing through. It is good to remember the areas that the latest coat has completely gone from and double up the coats of new stuff in those areas.

The boat had Coppercoat from new, unsure what was under that. I far as I knew it was the first coating. Micron 66 Black was applied directly to that coat because the Coppercoat wasn't working. The keel had to be coated lightly or not at all except for the bulb to avoid it being stuck in the raised position. All coats we put on was Micron 66 subsequently.

Spoke to a guy at Sandspit who was scrubbing barnacles off his launch. He was most disappointed with W&F Warpaint, 6 months and had a lot of growth!! His comment "Expensive mistake". I guess others may have had better results?
