Maximum dry time before launch is 7 days @ 70°F. If the boat is hauled during the season, Seamate will loose its effectiveness if left out of water longer than three days.

PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACES: If the previous coating is in good condition, thoroughly sand with 80-120 grit production paper and wipe clean with a rag dampened with Pettit 120 Brushing Thinner to remove sanding residue. Apply two coats of Seamate observing the proper dry times. If the previous coating is in poor condition, remove to the bare surface by sanding or using Pettit 9051 Bio Blast Paint Remover. Proceed with the appropriate bare system as described below. Old tin copolymer paints must be removed or may be sealed with Pettit 6627 Tie Coat Primer before applying Seamate.

BARE FIBERGLASS: All bare fi berglass, regardless of age, must be thoroughly cleaned using Pettit 95 Fiberglass Dewaxer and clean lint-free rags. Several cleanings may be necessary to ensure complete removal of contaminants. Change rags frequently during the dewaxing/cleaning process to ensure complete removal of contaminants rather than merely smearing them on the surface. New boats must be scrubbed with a detergent and water solution and rinsed with fresh water prior to dewaxing. After the surface has been dewaxed, sand it thoroughly with 80 grit production paper and rewash the sanded surfaces with Pettit 95 Dewaxer or 120 Brushing Thinner to remove sanding residue. Apply two coats of Seamate observing the proper dry times. If sanding is prohibited, as with certain vinyl-ester gelcoats, or is otherwise impractical, make sure the surface has been completely and thoroughly dewaxed and cleaned with Pettit 95 Fiberglass Dewaxer. Then apply one, thin, continuous coat of Pettit 6999 Sandless Primer. Topcoat with two coats of Seamate carefully following the topcoating instructions on the Sandless Primer label. If the gelcoat is crazed or “spider-cracked”, sand the gelcoat with 80-120 grit paper to a dull, frosty fi nish; wipe clean with Pettit 120 Brushing Thinner. Follow with a coat of 4700/4701 High Build Epoxy Primer; allow to dry overnight, sand with 80 grit paper and solvent clean before the application of Seamate.

BARE FERROCEMENT: Apply a full coat of 4700/4701 High Build Epoxy Primer; after an overnight dry, sand well with 80 grit paper then solvent clean. Apply two fi nish coats of Seamate.

BARE WOOD: Sand the entire surface with 80 grit production paper and wipe clean with a rag dampened with Pettit 120 Brushing Thinner. Apply a coat of Seamate thinned 25% with 120 Brushing Thinner to penetrate and seal the wood. Fill any open seams with Pettit Seam Compound (7110 White or 7610 Mahogany) and allow to dry overnight. Apply two full coats of Seamate observing the proper dry times.

STEEL HULLS: Sandblast to SSPC-SP 6 “commercial” blast, blow off residue with clean, compressed air, and immediately apply the fi rst of three coats of 4700/4701 following application and recoat instructions. Alternatively, hand sand with 80 grit sandpaper or power hand tool clean, then remove residue with clean compressed air or clean, solvent dampened rags. Immediately apply one coat of Pettit 6980 Rustlok Steel Primer and let dry to a tack free state (usually 30 minutes to 2 hours, dependent on temperature). Then apply two coats of 4700/ 4701 High Build Epoxy Primer following application and recoat instructions. Apply two coats of Seamate.

KEELS - LEAD: Abrade surface to bright metal; wipe clean using Pettit 120 Brushing Thinner. Apply one thin coat of 6455/044 Metal Primer; allow to dry two hours. Apply one coat of Pettit 6627 Tie Coat Primer then, if fairing is required, apply Epoxy Fairing Compound. Follow with an additional coat of 6627 Tie Coat Primer per label directions. Apply two fi nish coats of Seamate.

KEELS - STEEL OR CAST IRON: Abrade surface to bright metal; wipe clean using Pettit 120 Brushing Thinner. Apply one coat of 6980 Rustlok Steel Primer, allowing to dry only 1 - 2 hours prior to overcoating. Then, if fairing is required, apply Epoxy Fairing Compound followed by one coat of Pettit 6627 Tie Coat Primer. Apply two fi nish coats of Seamate.

DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT ON ALUMINUM HULLS AND OUTDRIVES.

APPLICATION INFORMATION: Seamate contains cuprous oxide. 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 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. Adhere to all application instructions, precautions, conditions and limitations to obtain optimum performance. Refer to individual labels and tech sheets for detailed instructions when using associated products, etc. Do not thin Seamate more than 10% (12 ounces per gallon) or inadequate paint fi lm thickness will occur and premature erosion of the fi nish will be likely. Coating performance, in general, is proportional to the degree of surface preparation. Follow recommendations carefully, avoiding shortcuts. Inadequate preparation of surfaces will virtually assure inadequate coating performance. No antifouling paint can be effective under all conditions of exposure. Man made pollution and natural occurrences can adversely affect antifouling paint performance. Extreme hot and cold water temperatures, silt, dirt, oil, brackish water and even electrolysis can ruin an antifouling paint. Therefore, we strongly suggest that the bottom of the boat be checked regularly to make sure it is clean and that no growth is occurring. Lightly scrub the bottom with a soft brush to remove anything from the antifouling paint surface. Scrubbing is particularly important with boats that are idle for extended periods of time. The coating is most effective when the boat is used periodically.
