by Petra L. Flag of Germany 1/2/2019 Verified purchase Variant: 53785
Particularly suitable for Dutch boats with a previous tar coal coating in the underwater area, as 100% compatibility

by Petra L. Flag of Germany 1/29/2018 Verified purchase Variant: 53785
especially suitable for older steel ships
Jürgen M.
by Jürgen M. Flag of Germany 3/11/2014 Verified purchase Variant: 53786
Easy to apply black paint for the underwater boat also directly on steel. Well, if you do not want to carry out complex surface treatment for other antifoulings. Particularly suitable for old tar or bitumen paints. The durability of the painting is mediocre. The larger the layer thickness the longer the lacquer keeps. Blackbottom cures well and keeps good as a overcoat and does not soften in the sun. But who is already sweeping the overflow vessel with black tar-color look?
