INTERLUX
InterProtect® 2000E Barrier Coat System

InterProtect® 2000E is a unique two-part epoxy coating developed to protect new and used fiberglass hulls from water absorption, which can lead to poor hull performance and osmotic blistering. Formulated with Micro-plates® that create an overlapping barrier to eliminate any direct path for water migration. In addition to use as a barrier coat, Interprotect 2000E is also an excellent fiberglass topside primer and great for underwater metals.

Quart and Gallon Kits are offered and consist of separate containers of base and reactor. When mixed, kits yield either a quart or a gallon. We also offer, as separate purchases, “short-pour” 3-gallon containers and separate containers of reactor, which when mixed, yield three full gallons. There are two low VOC formulations available, Interprotect 2000 VOC (898628) and Interprotect HS (15086606). Check your local air quality management district for compliance.

  • Total Thickness Required: Above waterline: 2 coats; below waterline: 4–5 coats (10 mil minimum)

      Boat is not in the water yet. I've heard nothing but good things from other people to use this product , I definitely do recommend using the white first then Grey or vice versa to make sure you get a nice thick coat it definitely makes it a lot easier to see where you missed

            Easy to mix, but kit did not include any measuring cup. Applied easy and dried quick.
            Antifouling adhered good.

              This is a great product for faring and waterproofing your cast iron or lead keel and your hull below the water line. Sands well with orbital or long-board sander. Sands super smooth.

                      Comments about InterProtect 2000E Barrier Coat System:

                      redoing an old boat with cracked, chipped and otherwise trashed gel coat presented many challenges, however with interlux 2000 2 part epoxy the job was much easier than I could have anticipated. Having read multiple forums about redoing gel coat I went into the project with a certain amount of fear of ruining my boat. after sanding, filling, and fairing the hull I prepared to mix the first batch. My only complaint is that when this paint settles it settles good.... it took about 30 min of diligent stirring to get the base back into suspension. with the 2nd gallon i simply turned it upside down for 24 hours prior to use, and it made the stirring go MUCH easier. Anyway, with a dry brush and a "smooth finish" foam roller I applied the first coat, WOW what a difference! Tipping with the dry brush made the coats lay down nice and flat and gave a very good smooth surface, not quite gel coat however I understand if you spray this product on you can get that "gel coat smooth" look, but this was close enough for me and I get comments all the time about how good the boat looks!

                          This barrier coat was easy to mix and went on even easier. I used it as a barrier coat for some fresh bottom paint and I couldn't be happier with it. Just sand and clean the surface and roll it on just like at home.
