STEP 1

CLEAN & DEGREASE THE SURFACE OF THE PROPELLOR

It is of great importance that you degrease the surface first. Especially focus on degreasing the edges of the propellor thoroughly. Make sure you do not sand the surface of your propellor. You can use Neocleaner or another degreaser like Solvatane or Ammoniac. Make sure to use enough of your degreaser, hit every spot well and change your cloth often.

STEP 2

MIX THE NEOPROP

Neoprop is a two component coating. You will have a “Component A” and a smaller “Component B” container. Open both containers and add component B to the container of component A. Make sure you always mix the entirety of the two containers. The ratio of component A and B is very sensitive, therefore mixing a part of the container might result in undesired results. By using an electric power mixer, mix the two components together for about 5 minutes. Let the mixture rest for 45 minutes (induction time). After this stir the mixture again. After this Neoprop has a pot life of 4 hours. While the Neoprop mixture is resting, you may continue to mix the Neowash primer.

STEP 3

MIX THE NEOWASH PRIMER 

Neowash is a two component primer. You will have a “Component A” and a smaller “Component B” container. Open both containers and add component B to the container of component A. Make sure you always mix the entirety of the two containers. The ratio of component A and B is very sensitive, therefore mixing a part of the container might result in undesired results. By using an electric power mixer, mix the two components together for about 5 minutes. There is no induction time, it can be used directly. After this Neowash has a pot life of 4 hours.


STEP 4

APPLY NEOWASH PRIMER 

You may notice that the Neowash primer has a strong smell. Apply the Neowash primer as thinly as possible, while ensuring the paint covers the surface completely.  It is important to make sure Neowash is applied in a even layer of maximum 60 micron when the paint is wet. The layer thickness may be measured with a “wet film comb”. Make sure that the Neowash primer does not exceed the recommended layer thickness, especially on the edges of the propellor. Neowash will need a curing time of 40 minutes. After this you may move on to apply Neoprop in step 5.

STEP 5

APPLY NEOPROP

Using an Anza roller, or other roller that is suitable for two component coatings, roll the neosil coating at a wet film thickness of 140 microns. The layer thickness may be measured with a “wet film comb”. Neoprop must cure more than 72h, at approximately 18°c., before the vessel is launched into the water, to obtain his optimal characteristics. Because the coating is still vulnerable for mechanical damages, it is advised to have the full system cure for 7 days before allowing the ship to water.
