The choice of antifouling


The antifouling must be chosen based on the cruising speed of the boat and the material with which it is built.

All Brava antifoulings can be applied on wooden or plastic hulls, applying the appropriate primer where necessary.
A copper-free antifouling must be applied to aluminum or light alloy hulls.
Iron hulls are also subject to galvanic currents, however to a lesser extent:

it is therefore possible to apply copper-based antifoulings as long as an anticorrosive and insulating cycle is previously applied

enamels

 

Smalto 41

Covers, protects and waterproofs with a single coat interior hidden surfaces such as store rooms, ice boxes, and bilges. It is oil, solvents, detergents proof.

Mono or bi-component finishes

 

For the finishing of fiberglass sides, the two-component cycle is suggested.
This cycle ensures absolute best results in terms of hardness, lucidity, duration and resistance of the paint film.
The single-component cycle is to be suggested on wooden boats.

transparents

Protective oil for teak


Teak Oil is a protective product, based on jojoba oil, with very high penetrating, protective and waterproofing characteristics. It penetrates deeply into the fibers, does not form a film, leaves the surface dry, closes the porosity of the wood making it impermeable to water and dirt.

Painting the wood

 

For the painting of traditional wood boats, the application of one-component oil-based paints is undoubtedly the best choice for its unsurpassed characteristics of elasticity, resistance and aesthetic qualities.

The number of coats to be applied is very important: from 5 to 8 coats, according to the absorption of the wood, are suggested.

primers

 

Primerplast 11

Fiberglass and plastic primer


Primer to be applied on new fiberglass (and on two pack barrier coats). Used to improve adhesion of antifouling paint on gel-coat or on epoxy barrier coats such as anti-osmosis RESINA 90 and FONDO 22.

It is an epoxy resin, solvent-free, with extremely high impermeability for the treatment and prevention of osmosis. Added with the specific additive "Microsfere 78", it is used for gluing and filling works.

Resina 99

Fluid epoxy resin

 
Resina 99 is a solvent-free epoxy resin, with a degree of fluidity such as to penetrate deeply into the wood fibers. Resina 99 is used to reconsolidate deteriorated woods or to waterproof and protect new wood.

Alternative to Resina 90 in anti-osmosis cycles.

Microsfere 78

Microspheres additive
 

Glass microspheres to be added up to 100% by volume to Resin 90 or Resin 99 to obtain light fillers and customized glues.

Treatment and prevention of osmosis


When the water manages to pass the layer of the gel-coat and penetrates the laminate, the problem of osmosis arises. Osmosis occurs with bubbles up to 20 millimeters in diameter, filled with a liquid with a strong acid smell.
Indispensable is to show the boat to a specialist who can judge if you are really in the presence of osmosis and if it is appropriate to intervene immediately or not.
