Surface Preparation:
For best results, sandblast to remove rust, scale, barnacles, oil, paint, etc. where the purpose of the coating is to arrest corrosion in the splash zone areas of marine structures. The surfaces should be cleaned over an area extending from the top of the splash zone to a depth of one to two feet below the water level. Sandblasting can be done with conventional equipment below water as well as above.

Splash Zone Compound 3000 is supplied as two components. Mix equal parts of Components "A" and "B" together by hand or power mixer until a uniform color is obtained with no streaks. Because of the high viscosity of the components, a power driven stirrer greatly facilitates the mixing operation. Do not over-mix after even color is obtained as it will shorten the pot life.

Splash Zone Compound 3000 may be applied by hand. This is most easily accomplished by a man wearing a skin diver's wet suit, rubber gloves, a life jacket, with a lifeline secured to the structure. An outfit of this type provides warmth, buoyancy, protection against cuts, and overall safety. Best results are obtained if a heavy layer of the coating material is applied above the water line and held in place until it grips the underlying surface. The material should then be smeared uniformly up and down over the area to be coated; edges should be feathered. To assure adequate coverage, the applicator should aim for a film thickness of 1/8 to 1/4 inch in 3 or 4 applications for long-term protection. The coating is easily molded to this thickness if the rubber gloves are kept wet. If applying to tubular members, smear the compound to strips of fiberglass cloth or canvas ducking.
