Easypoxy is a highly rated, one-part polyurethane topside paint improved by the addition of silicone for a brilliant shine and easy brushability. It also contains ultraviolet filters which enhance the already superior gloss retention and durability of polyurethane. This results in a topside finish that is exceptionally easy to apply and produces a lasting gelcoat-like brilliance, with a minimum of effort.

Easypoxy is a modern polyurethane topside and deck enamel improved by the addition of silicone for brilliant shine and easy brushability. It has ultraviolet filters which enhance the already superior gloss retention and durability of polyurethane. The result is a topside finish that's exceptionally easy to apply, producing a lasting gelcoat-like brilliance with a minimum of effort. For a semi-gloss finish for decks and interiors use 3106 Easypoxy Semi-Gloss White or simply add 9080 Easypoxy Satin Additive to any Easypoxy color for a custom satin look.
Although not recommended for constant immersion, Easypoxy can be used on the bottoms of dry-sailed boats that will be in water no more than two days at a time. Allow the last coat of Easypoxy to dry a minimum of 7 days before launching when Easypoxy is used in this manner.
Stir thoroughly before use. Easypoxy may be applied by brush, roller, conventional or airless spray. For brush or roller application apply without thinning although in hot weather 5-10% Pettit 120 Brushing Thinner may be added to maintain a wet edge. For best results on large, smooth surfaces roll out using a short nap roller followed immediately by leveling off with the tip of a brush. For conventional spray application thin 15-20% with Pettit 121 Spraying Thinner. Apply one, thin even coat per day. After an overnight dry, lightly sand with 220 grit sandpaper and apply a second coat. Applying two or more coats in one day or applying excessively heavy films (greater than 4 wet mils) will lead to insufficient through drying of the paint and will yield soft paint films. For airless spray application thin up to 5% with Pettit 121 Spraying Thinner. Utilize a .011-.015 inch diameter tip for application. Do not apply Easypoxy on extremely humid days (90°+ RH) or when rain is threatening. Do not apply in the late afternoon when working outdoors as the wet film may be adversely affected by dew. When working in cooler temperatures be sure the air and surface temperatures will remain at or above 50°F for at least 8 hours after application. Approx. Gallons of coverage: 600 sq.
Surface must be free of dirt, loose paint, rust, oil, grease, wax, soap and any other foreign matter. Clean painted areas by washing with a solution of 2 cups household ammonia per gallon of water and rinse well. Remove existing mildew with household bleach instead of ammonia.

All surfaces must be clean, dry and properly prepared prior to painting. Stir enamel thoroughly before use. Sand between coats of new enamel with 220 grit paper. Always wipe with a tack cloth immediately before the fresh application of paint to remove any airborne dust which may have settled.
Bare Fiberglass: The entire surface to be painted, regardless of age, must be thoroughly washed with 95 Fiberglass Dewaxer to remove all traces of mold release agents and wax. Sand the gelcoat with 80- 120 grit paper to a dull, frosty appearance; solvent clean to remove residue. If the surface is in excellent condition, proceed with the first finish coat of Easypoxy.
If the surface is rough or imperfections exist, it will have to be repaired. Fill all nicks and gouges with Pettit Protect 7000/7001 Epoxy Fairing Compound or 7191 Easypoxy Mender; sand flush when hard, then solvent clean. Follow with a coat of 4172/4027 Polypoxy White Undercoater or 6149 Easypoxy White Undercoater to smooth the surface and provide a uniform base; sand well and solvent clean. Proceed with the first finish coat of Easypoxy.
Bare Wood: Sand surface smooth with 80-120 grit paper; then solvent clean to remove residue. Fill all screwheads or small holes with 7191 Easypoxy Mender; sand flush and solvent clean. Apply a coat of 2018 Clear Sealer to penetrate and seal the porous grain. Follow with one or two coats of 6165 Yacht White Undercoater until an evenly smooth base condition is reached; sand each coat with 80-120 grit paper and solvent clean. Proceed with the first finish coat of Easypoxy.
Bare wood that has been epoxied must be thoroughly scrubbed with an ammonia/water solution then sanded with 120 grit paper and solvent cleaned. Follow with a coat of 4172/4027 Polypoxy White Undercoater to smooth the surface and provide a uniform base; sand well and solvent clean; then proceed with the first coat of Easypoxy.
Bare Steel: Surface must be cleaned to a bright finish by sandblasting or grinding; remove blast residue. Immediately apply one coat of 6980 Rustlok Primer; allow to dry until tacky. If surface is rough, apply a coat of 6627 Tie-Coat Primer; sand well and solvent clean. Repeat application as needed until a perfectly smooth, uniform base is reached. Proceed with the first coat of Easypoxy.
Bare Aluminum Boats, Masts & Spars: Wipe the surface free of oil and grease with solvent. Remove oxidation and etch the surface with medium grit emery cloth; remove sanding residue. Apply one thin "wet" coat of 6455 Metal Primer; allow to dry at least two hours. Proceed with the first coat of Easypoxy. 6149 Easypoxy White Undercoater can be used over the 6455 Metal Primer for smoothing surfaces if desired.
Painted Surfaces: If the old paint is in good, sound condition, sand it thoroughly smooth with 150 grit paper; solvent clean to remove residue, then proceed with the first coat of Easypoxy. If the old paint is in poor condition, remove it by sanding or a paint and varnish remover. Proceed with instructions for the appropriate bare surface system.
Non-Skid Decks: To provide a safe, slip-proof texture on decks, add Pettit 9900 Skidless Compound to the mixed Easypoxy. Stir mixture continuously to insure compound is thoroughly dispersed and remains in suspension. A minimum of two coats are recommended, following the appropriate application system. Alternatively, apply a coat of Easypoxy (without 9900 Skidless Compound) to all areas requiring a non-skid surface, then sprinkle or broadcast the 9900 Skidless Compound into the wet Easypoxy. After drying overnight carefully brush-out all loose Skidless Compound and apply another thin, even coat of Easypoxy to the surface. For decks which have a pre-molded, non-skid embossment, wash the surface with 95 Fiberglass Dewaxer. Abrade area thoroughly with bronze wool; solvent clean to remove residue. Apply two coats of Easypoxy adding 9900 Skidless Compound to the mixture if an improved non-skid texture is desired.
