PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACES: If the previous coating is in good condition, thoroughly sand with 80 grit paper then solvent clean with 120 Brushing Thinner to remove residue. Apply two fi nish coats of Copper Bronze. If the previous coating is soft or in poor condition, remove to the bare surface by sanding or using Pettit 9051 Bio Blast Paint Remover. Proceed with appropriate bare system as described below. Old tin copolymers should be removed or sealed with Pettit 6627 Tie Coat Primer before applying Copper Bronze.

BARE FIBERGLASS: All bare fi berglass, regardless of age, should be thoroughly cleaned several times with Pettit 95 Fiberglass Dewaxer or 120 Brushing Thinner. Sand thoroughly with 80 grit sandpaper to a dull, frosty fi nish and rewash the sanded surface with 95 Fiberglass Dewaxer or 120 Brushing Thinner to remove sanding residue. Then apply two coats of Copper Bronze, following application instructions. Careful observation of the above instructions will help ensure long term adhesion of this and subsequent years’ antifouling paint.

BARE WOOD: Sand entire surface with 80 grit paper; wash clean with 120 Brushing Thinner. Apply a coat of Copper Bronze thinned 25% with 120 Brushing Thinner, allow an overnight dry, lightly sand and wipe clean. Apply two fi nish coats of Copper Bronze.

STEEL HULLS: Sandblast or disc sand to a clean, bright fi nish and remove residue. Then either immediately apply two coats of 6980 Rustlok Steel Primer, allowing each to dry only 1-2 hours prior to overcoating - OR - immediately apply one thin coat of 6455 Metal Primer and allow to dry two hours; follow with two coats of 6627 Tie Coat Primer, allowing each to dry two hours minimum. Apply two fi nish coats of Copper Bronze.

KEELS - LEAD: Abrade surface to bright metal; clean off residue. 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 Copper Bronze.

KEELS - STEEL OR CAST IRON: Abrade surface to bright metal; clean off residue. Apply one coat of 6980 Rustlok Steel Primer, allowing to dry only 1 - 2 hours prior to overcoating.

DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT ON ALUMINUM HULLS AND OUTDRIVES.

APPLICATION INFORMATION: Copper Bronze is loaded with 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 paint 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 Copper Bronze 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.
