1959 Hard Racing Copper Bronze is recommended for use in fresh water on racing hulls, sailboats, runabouts or cruisers. It is a non-antifouling hard racing finish that can be buffed to give a high-gloss, ultra smooth surface. It can be used in saltwater for small, dry sailed boats which are not left in the water. When used above the waterline in saltwater, the 1959 Hard Racing Copper Bronze will oxidize to a green color if not overcoated with a clear sealing coat. 1959 Hard Racing Copper Bronze may be applied over most aged hard racing non-antifouling coatings. If the old paint type is unknown, sand a small area and apply a test patch of 1959 Hard Racing Copper Bronze to test its compatibility with the old paint. If the 1959 cracks or lifts the old paint, all the old paint will have to be removed. If nothing appears to happen when the 1959 is applied, let the test patch dry overnight, then scrape the 1959 to see if it is adhering to the old paint satisfactorily. If the adhesion looks good follow the recommendation for Previously Painted Surfaces.

1959 Hard Racing Copper Bronze is loaded with copper flake pigment. 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.
