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)
  • Drying Time: To overcoat: 3 hrs.–6 months @ 73°F (time period applies to overcoating with InterProtect 2000E; min./max. time to overcoat varies with temperature and substance applied, that is, bottom paint, filler, etc.)
  • Coverage: Brush: 60sq.ft/qt., 240sq.ft./ gal.; spray: 45sq.ft./qt., 180sq.ft./gal.
  • Application Methods: Brush, roller, airless/conventional spray
  • Thinner: Interlux 2316N (Model 198598), (10% reduction limit)

      Comments about InterProtect 2000E Barrier Coat System:

      I had to rebuild the fiberglass rudder for my sailboat, which left it completely bare of any paint. I bought the small 1qt kit and mixed it up into two batches (3 to 1 mix, I did 6 oz. of paint and 2 oz. of reactor for each coat) for painting the rudder. I used a cheap, small 4" foam roller kit from your big box home improvement store and some extra rollers. The instructions could be written a little better, for example most DIY/novice painters using two part epoxy for the first time might not know what "20 minutes induction time" means. Which is just waiting 20 minutes after you mix it before you start painting it on. So when doing multiple coats and you want to re-coat asap, mix up the next batch ~15 minutes or so before the first coats full re-coat dry time.

      The Bensalem, PA West Marine guys are ALWAYS helpful and courteous.

              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.
