Interlux Pre-Kote primer is used above the waterline prior to painting topsides with Brightside polyurethane, Toplac, yacht enamels, or any one part topside finish on wood, fiberglass, and previously painted surfaces.
Pre-kote contains microspheres for superior build and hide. Microspheres also make it easier to sand.
This primer requires thinner INT-0333 (for brushing) or INT-0216 (for spraying).
Available in Gray or White.

BARE WOOD: Sand with 80 grade (grit) paper. Wipe with Brushing Liquid 333. Repair surface defects with Surfacing Putty 257. PLYWOOD: Follow directions for bare wood. Apply Inter-Prime Wood Sealer Clear 1026. MAHOGANY Follow directions for bare wood. Apply Pre-Kote directly to the wood.
BARE FIBERGLASS: Wipe a small area with a clean rag that has been wetted with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. While the surface is still wet, wipe with a clean, dry rag.

Other Spray pressures listed are recommendations only. The applicator may use any settings which yield the best results for the individual spraying technique and current weather conditions. It is always good painting practice to apply the finish enamel soon after sanding to avoid surface contamination. Always apply at least one coat of Pre-Kote over area treated with Surfacing Putty 257 to seal the putty and eliminate shadows.
