      Coating

      1 Apply Lightspeed

      Lightspeed is a proprietary silicone coating that binds to the surface of the light providing a thin, protective layer that repels barnacle larvae and prevents marine growth from adhering to the underwater light. Lightspeed is able to bind to all surface substrates no matter whether they are polymer, plastic or glass based. We have included a small, high quality brush to provide the best result.

      Pierce the seal of the tube using the lid. Squeeze a small amount of the Lightspeed coating directly on to the brush.

      Apply a thin layer of the coating on to the underwater light. Make sure there are no heavy runs or sags. You will have 5 to 10 minutes to touch these up.

      Application Tip

      • Use the provided brush to apply Lightspeed
      • Make sure there are no heavy runs or sags 

      Dry Time

      Lightspeed requires a minimum of 8 hours to dry before launching. In cold conditions, 5-13°C (40 – 60°F), we recommend at least 24 hours drying before launching. Lightspeed is not adversely affected by sitting out of the water for extended periods of time in warm or cold climates.
