Premium SSA is a very economical antifouling which incorporates the basic ablative technology for a single season of use. The paint will wear away over time, eliminating sanding, however, prolonged exposure to air is not recommended. Trailering and winter dry storage are not recommended with this product. Use Thinner 120.

Premium Single Season Ablative Antifouling Paint protects all hull bottoms - wood, fiberglass, and properly primed steel from attachment of marine organisms in salt and fresh water, from the tropics to the Arctic. Premium Single Season Ablative can be used on previously painted surfaces. There's no need to remove old coatings or paints that are still in good condition - no need to apply special primers except on bare metal.
Premium Single Season Ablative is intended as a single-season ablative. It functions as an ablative, releasing biocide (copper) over time and wearing the surface away. However, it does have a high wear rate and must be lightly sanded if left out of the water for dry storage. 1 or 2 coats each season are recommended for optimal performance.
Premium Single Season Ablative contains cuprous oxide. As a result of this there is a tendency for settling to occur, especially if the paint has been on the shelf for several months. It is necessary to thoroughly mix the paint before using. If possible shake the can of paint on a mechanical paint shaker. Before using check the sides and bottom of the can to make sure all the pigment has been mixed in. If mixing is going to be done with a wooden paddle or an electric drill mixer, pour off half of the liquid from the top of the can into another can and then properly mix in any settled pigment; then remix the two parts together thoroughly.
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 Premium Single Season Ablative more than 10% (12 ounces per gallon) or inadequate paint film thickness will occur and premature erosion of the finish will be likely.
Coating performance, in general, is proportional to the degree of surface preparation. Follow recommendations carefully, avoiding shortcuts. Inadequate preparation of surfaces will virtually assure inadequate coating performance.
No antifouling paint can be effective under all conditions of exposure. Man made pollution and natural occurrences can adversely affect antifouling paint performance. Extreme hot and cold water temperatures, silt, dirt, oil, brackish water and even electrolysis can ruin an antifouling paint. Therefore, we strongly suggest that the bottom of the boat be checked regularly to make sure it is clean and that no growth is occurring. Lightly scrub the bottom with a soft brush to remove anything from the antifouling paint surface. Scrubbing is particularly important with boats that are idle for extended periods of time. The coating is most effective when the boat is used periodically.
