Fairing And Painting Metal Keel


1) Degrease and clean the surface with Dewaxer.

2) Bring metal to a uniform bright finish by sandblasting with non-ferrous blast media such as clean silica sand or, if blasting is not possible, grind using a 36 grit wheel. Remove blast or sanding residue with clean air or a broom.

3) If fairing is necessary, fair surface using KBS NuFill Epoxy Filler until desired smoothness is reached.

4) Apply 4-5 coats of Bottom Protect Primer.

5) Apply 2-3 coats of antifouling paint.
