Pettit EasyPoxy Topside Paint

Pettit Easypoxy is a highly rated, one-part polyurethane topside paint improved by the addition of silicone for a brilliant shine and easy brushability. It also contains ultraviolet filters to enhance the already superior gloss retention and durability of polyurethane.

This results in a topside finish that is exceptionally easy to apply and produces a lasting gelcoat-like brilliance with minimum effort. Easypoxy is available in white and twenty-five popular topside colors.

  • Application Humidity: 0% Min., 90% Max.


  • 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 (90Deg+ 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 50Deg F for at least 8 hours after application.

  • SURFACE PREPARATION
    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.

We are rebuilding a 1970's pontoon which needed some help! We picked EasyPoxy Burgundy for a top side color!

EasyPoxy mixed well and spread over the painted aluminum well. Its a very thick paint which means that you dont need to lay the paint on thich! Just worked a small bit in at a time. 2 Coats is all you need and the gloss finish is fantastic!

Our boat will be the sharpest 1970's era out on the Minnesota lakes!

Both this product and Interlux Brightsides are similar single stage polyurethane enamels and both claim spray application as one of the 4 options to apply. However, I don't find much in the way of instructions or references for spraying. So I'll add my 2 cents. Interlux instructs no more than 10% of it's thinner (xylene) and Pettit, 15-20% (xylene/mineral spirits). Temp & humidity factor in and having used both products here in St. Croix, Virgin Islands, 85 deg., 80% hum., I got the best results with 5% thinner in both. You must run trial tests for your conditions. I use a LVLP spray gun with a 1.4mm tip to avoid runs and it has exellent dispersment. I was striving to get that glassy mirror like finish (like Awl-Grip) but the best I could achieve was a sprayed-on look. The polyurethane does not like to atomize finely nor flow smoothly when it contacts the surface applied to. I sprays easily and evenly, covers very well and leaves an attractive, bright, glossy finish but not glassy.

Color is Completely Wrong

    Comments about Pettit Z-Spar Pettit EasyPoxy Topside Paint:

    My husband loved the paint and couldn't believe how easy it applied and how great it looked. I selected the paint color to match seats that were already purchased. The ocean blue looks more like an electric blue on the color samples shown on the website. It is actually more similar to the bikini blue or powder blue with tones of gray.
    We should have purchased the electric blue, but it appears to look navy blue on the sample.
    Since my husband likes to get things done quickly, he painted the entire boat before the seats were installed. He now agrees that the color does not match and he needs to repaint the entire boat.
    I would have given this product 5 stars if we didn't have this issue with the color being so far off. I would highly suggest getting a color sample before you purchase this product.

      Thinned slightly with penetrol due to weather. Cold, damp and definitely not good painting weather, but the Easypoxy went on and dried well. re-Painted wood hull. Rolled and tipped.

          Product said to use thin coats. I light sanded and cleaned the surface as recommended, Cut in with brush, rolled with recommended roller type. Product was like water, roller left bubbles as usual, but did not flatten out, as usual. Am in the process of sanding the entire surface to remove product. Used the same product 3 years ago and it worked perfectly. This time it had to be defective

              I have used Petit marine paint since the 60's. Always had good flow out and durability. This gallon I purchased was thinned to a consistancy that you would normally use for a spray gun. It stated on lid to use thin coats if brushing or rolling. Little bubbles formed when rollimg and stayed there when it dried. I would not consider using this product again, unless someone can prove I received a defective product. I am in the process of samding it all off.

                  Perfect for what I wanted. We are rehabing a 1964 airstream Bambi. We had the old yellow grazed shower/toilet pan. It was ugly and I didn't want to use it. Then I read about your Petite easyPoxy topside paint someone else used on their old shower pan and I looked at your website and ordered it. Looks like new and it is a nice hard professional finish. Would highly recommend it. I am also going to try it on an old claw foot bathtub we have here at our vacation rental place. We renovated 3 old houses but I need to refinish the tub. That will be my next project with easypoxy.
                  Thanks, Virginia

                        I painted a large deck box on my boat, as well as painting fiberglass bulwark inserts for fishing rods. They came our smooth and beautiful. The paint flows well and smooths out leaving a professional finish.

                            I had never done roll & tip before but once mastered the result looked nearly sprayed on. This was a large surface project on a 40' house boat still tied to the dock. It took 2 coats and I believe it would look even better with a 3rd. This must be applied in even thin coats otherwise you'll get runs & sags. Keep a sharp eye out for those afternoon T Storms. It doesn't like to get wet too soon.
