Carbosil Marine Satin Paint is a premium grade alkyd coating designed for use in marine environments. It can be used on all marine surfaces, including boat structures, deck surfaces, bridges, cargo and storage areas, tanks and super structures. The paint adheres to wood, metal, GRP and a range of other materials, so can be applied to almost any surface in a marine environment such as a dock or marina.
The silicone and urethane resins in the paint provide a highly weather resistant satin finish that is both durable and high covering. This ensures the paint withstands the conditions expected of a marine environment and has an adequate lifespan to avoid constant repainting.
If you’re looking for a colour other than black or white, or have an existing colour you would like to match, please contact us. Our friendly team can advise you on our custom tinting service and help you find the colour you’re looking for.
At Palatine Paints, we manufacture our own Marine Satin instead of using an external supplier. This gives us a much greater understanding and knowledge of the product and its properties than most other suppliers of similar paints.
We also have a gloss finish alternative available.
Carbosil Marine Satin Paint Application
Preparation: On previously painted surfaces, ensure it is sound and non-flaking. Abrade the surface preferably by mechanical abrasion to provide a “key” and maximise adhesion of the subsequent coating. For metal surfaces the standard grades of cleanliness for abrasive blast cleaning in accordance with BS EN ISO 8501-1 are:
- Sa 1 – Light blast cleaning
- Sa 2 – Thorough blast cleaning
- Sa 2½ – Very thorough blast cleaning
- Sa 3 – Blast cleaning to visually clean steel
Application: Apply by brush, roller or spray and work well into the surface. Avoid applying the paint to thickly to avoid delaying drying times. The second and subsequent coats can be applied as soon as the first / preceding coat is dry usually after 12-24 hours, and should be applied within 5 days.
If more than 5 days elapse, the first coat should be lightly abraded before the second coat is applied. Avoid power washing the surface for 7 days.
Carbosil Marine Satin Paint is touch dry in 3 hours and hard dry in 24 hours. Once applied, leave for 16 hours before overcoating.
Expected Coverage: 12 to 14m² per litre
For thinning and cleaning, use white spirit.
