BARE FIBERGLASS: All fiberglass surfaces, regardless of age, should be thoroughly cleaned and prepped using 92 Bio-Blue Hull Surface Prep or washed at least twice with Pettit 95 Fiberglass Dewaxer. Change rags frequently to ensure complete removal of wax, mold release, or other contaminants. Sand the surface thoroughly with 60 grit sandpaper and rewash with 95 Fiberglass Dewaxer to remove sanding residue. Apply at least three coats* of Pettit Protect High Build Epoxy Primer 4700/4701 following the application and recoat instructions. Finish with two coats of Pettit antifouling paint.
BLISTERED FIBERGLASS: Refer to Pettit Technical Bulletin TB1000 "Gelcoat Blister Repair and Prevention” for detailed instructions.
BARE ALUMINUM: Sandblast (using non-metallic media) or disc sand the aluminum to clean, bright metal. Wipe clean of residue and immediately apply one thin coat of Pettit 6455/044 Metal Primer. Let dry 8 hours minimum, 48 hours maximum, and apply three coats* Pettit Protect High Build Epoxy Primer 4700/4701 following application and recoat instructions.
STEEL HULLS: Sandblast to SSPC-SP 6 Commercial blast, blow off residue with clean, compressed air, and immediately apply three coats* 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 by vacuuming. 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 three coats of Pettit Protect High Build Epoxy Primer 4700/4701 following application and recoat instructions. Do not let Rustlok Primer dry longer than 2 hours under any circumstances before applying Pettit Protect High Build Epoxy Primer 4700/4701.
KEELS - LEAD: Disc sand or otherwise abrade surface to bright metal; clean off residue. Apply one thin coat of 6455/044 Metal Primer and allow to dry eight hours. Apply one coat of Pettit Protect High Build Epoxy Primer 4700/4701. Let dry to recoat. Then, if fairing is required, apply Pettit Protect 7000/7001 Epoxy Fairing Compound. Sand smooth with 80 grit sandpaper and follow with two additional coats of 4700/4701 per label directions.
KEELS - STEEL OR CAST IRON: Disc sand or otherwise abrade surface to bright metal and clean off residue. Apply one coat of 6980 Rustlok Steel Primer, allowing to dry only ½ - 2 hours prior to overcoating, no more, no less!Apply one coat of Pettit Protect High Build Epoxy Primer 4700/ 4701. Let dry to recoat. Then, if fairing is required, apply Pettit Protect 7000/7001 Epoxy Fairing Compound. Sand smooth and follow with two additional coats of 4700/4701 per label directions. Previously Primed Surfaces: Pettit Protect High Build Epoxy Primer 4700/4701 may be applied over existing two part epoxy finishes, provided they are in sound condition. Brush-off sandblasting or very heavy sanding with 60 grit sandpaper is required to maintain maximum adhesion. Then apply three coats* 4700/4701 per instructions. Remember, coating performance is only as good as the surface to which it's applied. All existing two package epoxy finishes in poor condition, as well as one package primers and bottom paints, should be removed completely and the appropriate bare system as described above should be followed before using Pettit Protect High Build Epoxy Primer 4700/4701.
*Total dry film thickness is more important than the actual number of coats applied. On metal and fiberglass, if 12 mils total DFT is not achieved with three coats, additional coats are recommended until 12 mils total DFT is achieved.
