  • Patent number: 6165620
    Abstract: A method is provided for applying a two-part RTV silicone tie coat directly onto damaged foul release coating area on a metallic substrate to enable restoration procedures. The direct application onto aged epoxy or silicone surface of an effective amount of an aminoalkyltrialkoxysilane, such as .gamma.-aminopropyltrimethoxy-silane, in a two-part RTV silicone tie coat, has been found to provide cohesive failure results with directly applied two-part RTV silicone top coat. A treated metallic substrate is obtained thereby.

  • Patent number: 5691019
    Abstract: A coated article for foul release for use in aquatic applications does not require a discrete tie-layer to ensure adhesion of a coating to a substrate. An adhesion promoting layer comprising an anticorrosive material and a bonding agent is applied directly to the substrate. A release layer comprising organopolysiloxane is deposited onto the adhesion promoting layer. A method for applying the foul release coating comprises the following steps: applying an adhesion promoting layer, curing the adhesion promoting layer, applying the release layer and curing the release layer.
