PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACES: Clean painted areas by washing with a solution of two cups household ammonia per gallon of water and rinse well. Remove existing mildew with household bleach instead of ammonia. Never mix bleach and ammonia. If the old paint is an oil-based enamel or polyurethane, and is in good, sound condition, sand it thoroughly smooth with 150 grit sandpaper, solvent clean to remove residue with Pettit 120 Thinner, then proceed with the first coat of Easypoxy. If the old oil-base or polyurethane paint contained a non-skid material, scrub the non-skid service with Pettit # 92 Bio-Blue Hull Surface Prep using a stiff bristle brush. Thoroughly rinse the surface and allow to dry, then apply two coats of Easypoxy. If the old paint is a latex or water-based paint, or is in poor condition, remove it with a paint and varnish remover or by sanding. Proceed with instructions for the appropriate bare surface system.
BARE FIBERGLASS: The entire surface to be painted regardless of age must be thoroughly washed with 120 thinner or 92 Bio-Blue to remove all traces of mold release agents and wax. Sand the gel coat with 80 to 120 grit sandpaper to a dull, frosty appearance, solvent clean with Pettit 120 Thinner to remove residue. If the surface is in excellent condition, proceed with the first finish coat of Easypoxy. If the surface is rough or imperfections exist, it will have to be repaired. Fill all nicks and gouges with 7050 EZ-Fair Epoxy Fairing Compound; sand flush when hard, then solvent clean. Follow with a coat of 6149 EZ Prime to smooth the surface and provide a uniform base; sand well and solvent clean. Proceed with the first finish coat of Easypoxy.
BARE WOOD: Sand surface smooth with 80-120 grit sandpaper, then solvent clean with Pettit 120 Thinner to remove residue. Fill all screw heads or small holes with 7050 EZ-Fair Epoxy Fairing Compound; sand flush and solvent clean with Pettit 120 Thinner. Apply a coat of 2018 EZ WoodSealer to penetrate and seal the porous grain. Follow with one or two coats of 6149 EZ Prime until an evenly smooth base condition is reached; sand each coat with 80-120 grit sandpaper and solvent clean with Pettit 120 Thinner. Proceed with the first finish coat of Easypoxy. Bare wood that has been epoxied must be thoroughly scrubbed with an ammonia/water solution then sanded with 120 grit sandpaper and solvent cleaned with Pettit 120 Thinner. Follow with a coat of 6149 EZ Prime to smooth the surface and provide a uniform base. Sand well and solvent clean with Pettit 120 Thinner, then proceed with the first coat of Easypoxy
STEEL HULLS: Surface must be cleaned to a bright finish by sandblasting or grinding; remove blast residue. Immediately apply one coat of 6980 Rustlok Primer; allow to dry until tacky. If surface is rough, apply a coat of 6627 Tie-Coat Primer; sand well and solvent clean with Pettit 120 Thinner. Repeat application as needed until a smooth, uniform base is reached. Proceed with the first coat of Easypoxy.
ALUMINUM: Wipe the surface free of oil and grease with Pettit 120 Thinner. Remove oxidation and etch the surface with medium grit emery cloth; remove sanding residue. Apply one thin “wet” coat of 6455/044 Metal Primer; allow to dry at least two hours. Proceed with the first coat of Easypoxy. 6149 EZ Prime can be used over the 6455/044 Metal Primer for smoothing surfaces if desired.
APPLICATION INFORMATION: Stir thoroughly before use. Easypoxy may be applied by brush, roller, conventional or airless spray. For brush or roller application apply without thinning although in hot weather 5-10% Pettit 120 Brushing Thinner may be added to maintain a wet edge. For best results on large, smooth surfaces roll out using a short nap roller followed immediately by leveling off with the tip of a brush. For conventional spray application thin 15-20% with Pettit 121 Spraying Thinner. Apply one, thin even coat per day. After an overnight dry, lightly sand with 220 grit sandpaper and apply a second coat. Applying two or more coats in one day or applying excessively heavy films (greater than 4 wet mils) will lead to insufficient through drying of the paint and will yield soft paint films. For airless spray application thin up to 5% with Pettit 121 Spraying Thinner. Utilize a .011-.015 inch diameter tip for application. Do not apply Easypoxy on extremely humid days (90°+ RH) or when rain is threatening. Do not apply in the late afternoon when working outdoors as the wet fi lm may be adversely affected by dew. When working in cooler temperatures be sure the air and surface temperatures will remain at or above 50°F for at least 8 hours after application.

Was very please with the quality of the finish after just one coat. Use a low-tech roll and tip application to a very worn '61 gelcoat top side. Seafoam green looks great.

Product Exceeds Expectations
Posted by Bob Smith on Apr 28th 2017
It's more than just the product it's also the people that worked with me to answered my questions. My boat is over 50 years old and made of wood and fiberglass. Every 2-3 years I have to rebuild and repaint. I'm still not done with my project yet but I did do some test painting with the 3 colors I ordered on some of the wood and fiberglass. The paint definitely leaves a bright hard finish which is what I wanted. I tried to abuse the painted surfaces and they held up quite well. Is a 2 part epoxy better than the Ezpoxy, most likely but for the guy that's looking for a great quality 1 part epoxy paint....Ezpoxy is the way to go. It's better than I expected and I've been painting this boat for 50 years with various paints and I know a little about paint, boat, sun, and saltwater. If it doesn't work for you and you don't like like it, you didn't follow the instructions on how to use it.

I liked the idea of an epoxy paint that did not need mixing. This eliminates a lot of waste and possible mixing problems. I have used Perfection by Interlux before and I was delighted. I was hoping the same for EZ Poxy by Pettite.
At first, I found the paint went on well and spread smoothly. Unfortunately, I live in Florida. As the day heated up into the low 90's the paint was drying too quickly. When I added thinner, it negatively impacted the shine. In order to do the job I wanted, my wife and I had to work side by side with roller and brush early in the morning or late in the day. This slowed us down considerably. I actually had to buy more white paint because of a repeated need for sanding and repainting. However, the final job is beautiful. The finish feels a little softer than Perfection, but we'll see how it takes the weather. At this point I would recommend the paint to a friend with the above caveats.
