Pettit Underwater Metal Kit- Quart
Underwater Metal Kit 6456 combines convenient sized containers of both our 6455/044 Metal Primer and 6627 Tie Coat Primer in one easy package.
This kit is specifically designed for the painting of underwater metal running gear including shafts, struts, props, thru-hulls, and trim tabs. The system is suitable for use on all underwater metal running gear, including steel, stainless or galvanized steel, bronze, and aluminum. Close attention to detail is essential to obtain maximum results on these difficult to paint surfaces. Regardless of the metal to be painted, the preparation and priming procedures are the same. Only the antifouling will be different.
Pettit Metal Primer:
Pettit Metal Primer is a two component product which is a self-etching type wash primer for use only on bare metals such as steel, stainless steel, cast iron, copper, bronze, galvanized steel, lead and aluminum. It forms an excellent adhesive bond to metal hulls, keels, centerboards, and other underwater running gear.
Pettit Tie Coat Primer:
Pettit's Tie Coat Primer is a general purpose, chlorinated rubber primer for use on metal surfaces and as a tie coat between different types of coatings. This versatile product can be used successfully above and below the waterline.
The painting process consists of three separate parts:
I. Surface preparation of the underwater metal surface
II. Priming of the underwater metal surfaces
III. Application of antifouling paint
