What is the point of the foil cap on the hardener in Perfection Plus?  It has a knife symbol embossed on it.  Does it contain something that is mixed into the hardener?

No, it's just an indicator to cut it away. Most hardeners are "purged" with nitrogen to keep out moisture. The foil cap is just an extra seal to help keep the nitrogen in and moist air out.

Thanks for the answer.  I suspected something like that since it wasn't mentioned in the directions.  So far (4 coats) it looks really good but I need to wait for warmer weather to add the additional coats.

Deciphering that cryptic symbol on the cap took the effort of many minds well experienced with bright work.
Do you think that Interlux could make instructions out of the K.I.S.S. book ?
Many of us are first time users of P² (Perfection Plus ). The on-the-can instructions are not only tiny tiny but technical for new (civilian) users of 2-part poly.
Even the sales staff at the marine store couldn't figure out what the knife and arrow symbols on the foil really meant !Embarrassed

I've brought this up before with the PTB (Powers-That-Be) - we don't manufacture cans, seals, etc, and that foil cap is a standard seal used with many paints (not just ours). Maybe we should make stickers that read "Cut Foil Away"? Would that do the job? We can't change the existing packaging to any appreciable degree - there are only so many can manufacturers...
As for the print...thank lawyers and bureaucrats for that - we have to put so much health, safety, and environmental warnings on cans now that there is little room left for instructions. Full product data sheets for every product can be found at:
www.yachtpaint.com for Interlux
www.awlgrip.com for Awlgrip

Thanks!

Jeremy:
For this first time user that's a generous cop-out.
There's no, none, nothing on your web site with simple, easy-to-understand instructions in plain talk for us.
The P² product is $$$ enough not to have clear understandable directions for using the 2 part poly.
Please, we have enough trouble with those evil bureaucrats and more evil attorneys.
A glaring example: are there other solvent, thinner, cleaning alternatives than your 2333N or 2316N that would work ? They cost more per unit than P² !!! Cry  Acetone perhaps ?
"Product Data Sheets" are NOT user instructions. 
And when I call your "tech line" for help, I'm told to check out your site. C'mon now.
