Same great paint—new name & new colors for 2017!
The topside paint you've come to know and trust—Easypoxy—has a new name: EZ-Poxy. Though the name has changed slightly, this is still the same one-part, high-gloss polyurethane paint with superior gloss and gloss retention, and dependable durability in all weathers.
In addition, Pettit is introducing 7 colors that are tried and true topside paint standards:
- Blue Glow White 3176
- Mediterranean White 3184
- Hatteras Cream 3208
- Dark Blue 3290
- Dull Dead Grass 3303
- Fighting Lady Yellow 3456
- Seattle Gray 3715
NOTE: Pettit has also changed the names of 6 of its existing colors as follows:
- Gloss White 3175 is now White 3175
- Off-White 3108 is now Hatteras Off-White 3108
- Electric Blue 3237 is now Electric Sapphire Blue 3237
- Newport Green 3333 is now Seafoam Green 3333
- Bright Red 3624 is now Fire Red 3624
- Dark Gray 3720 is now Steel Gray 3720
So for example, if you want to use up the rest of your Bright Red 3624, but don't have enough to complete your project, now you'll order Fire Red 3624. It's the same color, it just has a new, more descriptive name.
The surface must be free of dirt, loose paint, rust, oil, grease, wax, soap and any other foreign matter before painting. Clean painted areas by washing with a solution of 2 cups household ammonia per gallon of water and rinse well. Remove existing mildew with household bleach instead of ammonia.
Stir thoroughly before use. EZ-Poxy may be applied by brush, roller,
conventional spray, 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 mils wet) 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 EZ-Poxy on extremely humid days (90°F+ RH) or when rain is threatening. Do not apply in the late afternoon when working outdoors as the wet film 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.
