WHAT IS NETMINDER?
NETMINDER® is a water-based silicone release coating designed for use on nets, bags, ropes, cages, traps, and buoys. NETMINDER® protects substrates from UV degradation, and damage from biofouling. A slippery self-polishing nature makes it difficult for biofouling organisms to attach to NETMINDER® treated surfaces. NETMINDER® is non-toxic, generally regarded as safe (GRAS), safer for you, and our environment.
RECOMMENDED USES
NETMINDER® is recommended for use by fish farmers and fishermen on netting, cages, buoys/floats, tanks, mooring lines, boat hulls, and bare aluminum. View the Applications section to see Netminder at work.
HOW TO APPLY
NETMINDER® may be applied by traditional painting techniques but dipping is recommended.  NETMINDER® should not be applied if temperatures will drop below 7 degrees C (45 degrees F) during the drying process, should not be applied at wet-film thicknesses greater than 400µm. Only one coat is required for dip coating application though other application techniques may require two coats. Only apply NETMINDER® to clean, degreased surfaces. Follow instructions set forth in this technical data sheet for detailed information for your particular application.
SURFACE PREPARATION
Proper surface preparation is an extremely important step for a coating system that performs properly and lasts.  Follow recom-mendations set forth in following sections carefully. Inadequate surface preparation will result in poor coating performance.
