SURFACE PREPARATION:

Underwater Metals

  • 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.

  • Once back to bare, clean metal, wipe the surface with Pettit 120 Brushing Thinner and let dry.

Metals above Water

  • Remove all paint and rust with a wire brush or sandpaper. Lightly sand glossy surfaces.
  • Clean surface with Pettit 120 Brushing Thinner and let dry.

 APPLICATION:

  • Shake can vigorously for two minutes after the mixing balls begin to rattle.

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.

  • When finished spraying, clear spray valve by turning can upside down and spraying until no more paint comes out. If valve clogs, twist and pull off spray tip and rinse it in a solvent such as mineral spirits.

Do not stick a pin or other object in the stem
