Super Premium Performance Antifouling Finish (Pettit)
Great performance at an economical price! Use Thinner 120.
Adhere to all application instructions, precautions, conditions and limitations to obtain optimum performance. Refer to individual labels and tech sheets for detailed instructions when using associated products, etc. Do not thin Super Premium Performance more than 10% (12 ounces per gallon) or inadequate paint film thickness will occur and premature erosion of the finish will be likely.
Previously Painted Surfaces: If the previous coating is in good condition, thoroughly sand with 80 grit paper then solvent clean with 120 Brushing Thinner to remove residue. Apply two finish coats of Super Premium Performance. If the previous coating is soft or in poor condition, remove to the bare surface by sanding or using Pettit 9050 Bottom Paint Remover. Proceed with appropriate bare system as described below. Old tin copolymers should be removed or sealed with Pettit 6627 Tie Coat Primer before applying Super Premium Performance. When sanding old bottom paint, always wet sand and take precautions against getting the material in your eyes, nostrils, open cuts, etc.
Bare Fiberglass: All bare fiberglass, regardless of age, should be thoroughly washed with soap, ammonia and water. Let dry, then clean several times with Pettit 95 Fiberglass Dewaxer or 120 Brushing Thinner. Sand thoroughly with 80 grit sandpaper to a dull, frosty finish and rewash the sanded surface with 95 Fiberglass Dewaxer or 120 Brushing Thinner to remove sanding residue. Then apply two coats of Super Premium Performance, following application instructions. Careful observation of the above instructions will help ensure long term adhesion of this and subsequent years' antifouling paint.
To eliminate the sanding operation, wash the fiberglass three times using Pettit 95 Fiberglass Dewaxer only. Then apply one coat of Pettit 6999 Sandless Primer. Consult the Sandless Primer label for complete application and antifouling topcoating instructions.
Bare Wood: Sand entire surface with 80-100 grit wet or dry sandpaper; wash clean with 120 Brushing Thinner. Apply a coat of Super Premium Performance thinned 25% with 120 Brushing Thinner, allow an overnight dry, lightly sand and wipe clean. Apply two finish coats of Super Premium Performance. Any metal parts must be properly primed before applying the bottom paint.
