Question

Once this paint is applied, does it dry to a copper bronze look, that is somewhat matt finish? Is it a two part epoxy?

Asked on 05/24/2016 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

The paint dries to a flat finish. It is not a two part epoxy. It is a hard non- ablative paint.

Good stuff.

Answered on 05/25/2016 by ROY DOTY

Answer

It's a flat finish, copper color. Not a two part, just mix up the can well and put it on.

Answered on 05/24/2016 by PETER DAVIS

Answer

It does dry to a copper-bronze matt finish. It is not a two part epoxy, but a conventional single part oil base paint. In fresh water, it does a great job. I have no experience with it in salt water, but having used many Pettit products in salt water in the past with excellent results, this should perform just as well.

Answer

This paint dries to a flat finish... Very common bottom color on old Chris Craft boats... It is not a two part epoxy paint

Answered on 05/25/2016 by WILLIAM KOSKIE

Answer

The paint is not a 2 part expoxy system. The product dries to a true copper bronze finish. I have used 1933 on many Chris Craft and Penn Yan restorations. 2 coats are necessary. 30 minute stick stir time. Great product.

Answered on 05/24/2016 by ROY DOTY

Answer

The paint does dry to a nice copper color that is a matt finish. I applied with a roller that went quickly on the bottom of my 28' Trojan wooden cabin cruiser. It works very well in fresh water where I dock it. It is not two part. Mix the paint thoroughly before application, and occasionally during use. The heavier copper tends to separate. I have used this paint for many years and am quite satisfied with its performance.

I don't know...............

Answered on 01/02/2017 by WARREN FERRILL

Answer

To date, I never experienced an issue with a Pettit CB 1933 application footprint. Prior to application, I mechanically stirred the product for an hour to attain a consistent blend. I applied the paint with both a brush and roller. Never attempted to buff the product - not necessary. Applied over sanded mahogany impregnated with Smith's CPES.

Answered on 01/02/2017 by ROY DOTY

Answer

Thanks Jim. I tried buffing by hand with a sot cloth and it appeared to polish some. It left some copper on the cloth so I am wondering if power polishing might remove too much material. Mike A.

Answered on 01/02/2017 by MICHAEL ABERNETHY

Answer

I did not buff my project, a 1956 Chris Craft Sprtsman, but see no reason why it couldn't be done.

Question

is this paint good for fiber glass bottom boats?

Asked on 09/09/2013 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

This will work for fiberglass. The best answer is to read the manufacturers recommendations, which give requirements for prep and application. Just in case... I've used this bottom paint only on a wood hull. Rick

Answer

Yes - it should be fine as it is copper in an epoxy vehicle it adheres well and stands up to trailering my boat - I put two coats on.

Answer

I really don't know, I've only used it on a wooden boat

Answered on 09/09/2013 by JUANITA BARONE

Answer

Yes, I applied it to my 1986 Starfire last spring. The boat was docked all summer, about 15 weeks, and was removed last weekend for storage. Using a wide fan nozzle on a pressure washer the boats bottom cleaned up in about 15 minutes. Excellent product.

Question

Is there a color swatch for the copper bronze antifouling paint 1933? I did not see it on the 2012 Product guide. dave

Asked on 07/15/2013 by Dave Smith

Top Answer

Hey Dave, I have not seen one either. Think of a somewhat tarnished copper penny once the boat has been in the water. If you want to go crazy once the paint has cured for a few days, you can burnish the entire bottom of your boat to be as bright as a new copper penny. (My shoulders would give out first!)

No color compare swatch that I found. However, it seemed to match the Chris Craft being worked on.

The color I got when I painted it on turned out to be more bronze than copper in color.

When I was researching a bottom paint to match the original paint on my 63 Penn Yan I found that this was the one used on Chris Craft and Lyman boats of this period as well as the Penn Yans.

Does this change color when it dries?

Top Answer

It will tend to get a little green as the copper in the paint oxidizes.
