  • painting Interlux VC Performance

    Do any of you know if you can paint Interlux VC Performance paint over the 2000E barrier coat? I was planning on painting 2000E followed by the VC Performance but now I am not sure if the two are compatible.

        VC Performance Epoxy is a two part Teflon® bearing epoxy that has a hard, slick finish ideal for use on the underwater surfaces of high performance powerboats and racing sailboats. Teflon adds lubricity and eases wet sanding and burnishing. VC Performance Epoxy's hard, stain-resistant finish is also ideal for rack-stored and trailered boats or boats that are kept in the water not requiring antifouling protection. VC Performance Epoxy has no antifouling or foul release properties.
