Pettit Bio-Blue Marine Hull Surface Prep
Bio-Blue Hull Surface Prep is a powerful blend of cleaning agents and silica grit that de-waxes, etches, cleans, and prepares bare fiberglass for painting. Regardless of the boat’s age, the initial surface preparation is imperative. Residual parting agents utilized by the boat manufacturer to “pop” the boat from the mold may still be present, although not visibly apparent. This solvent-free product is designed to provide an easy and trouble-free method of removing unwanted contaminants, grease, wax, dirt, and mold release agents from fiberglass surfaces prior to painting. When used in conjunction with 6998 Skip Sand Primer or 6999 Sandless Primer and antifouling paint, it is part of an easy 1-2-3 system of bottom painting.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Pour out some of the 92 Bio-Blue into a roller pan, then using a short nap roller (3/16 inch maximum) apply the 92 Bio-Blue Hull Surface Prep to an area approximately 5 feet by 5 feet. Once the area has been covered with the Bio-Blue, scrub the surface using a fine to medium Scotch-Brite pad. The scrubbing should be done by hand in a circular motion. Be sure to wear splash goggles and rubber gloves and do not let 92 Bio-Blue come in contact with your skin. Be sure that all areas coated with the 92 Bio-Blue have been scrubbed with the Scotch-Brite pad. Stay within the 5 feet by 5 feet area and do not attempt to scrub beyond this area once the 92 Bio-Blue has been rolled on. After the section has been scrubbed, wipe the area with a wet sponge until all of the 92 Bio-Blue and scrubbing residue has been completely removed from the surface. Rinse sponge and change rinse water often. Where feasible, hose off the surface residue and residual 92 Bio-Blue with fresh water. Continue prepping the hull in this manner until the entire surface to be painted has been thoroughly cleaned. The gel coat should have a frosty look when the surface has been properly prepared.
DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT ON ALUMINUM HULLS AND OUTDRIVES.
