- Remove all paint from underwater metals, running gear, and plastic transducer housings by sanding, scraping, sandblasting or by using a paint and varnish remover.
Note: Do not use any solvent or paint and varnish remover containing ketone type solvents such as acetone, methylethyl ketone or methyl isobutyl ketone as these solvents will destroy the plastic transducer housing.

Shake often during use
- Hold can upright 12 to 16 inches from the surface and spray in a steady back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Be sure to keep the can the same distance from the surface and in motion while spraying.
Note: Allow no more than 5 minutes between two or three thin coats. Otherwise, allow to dry one hour before applying additional coats.
