Pettit ViViD is a bright color antifouling bottom paint. Bottom paint, in general, was dull and dirty looking until Vivid. Now you can have the brightest colors, the blackest black and the whitest white you have ever seen in bottom paint.
Its hybrid technology incorporates the benefits of both ablatives and hard paints. So, when you choose a clean, bright Vivid color, you also get a powerful, multi-season, dual biocide antifouling, a Pettit antifouling that is, simply, as effective as it is beautiful.
Available in Quart and Gallon sizes in Black, Blue, Green, Red, Yellow, and White. Black, Blue, and White are also available in a 3 Gallon pail.

Vivid contains cuprous thiocyanate and as a result of this there is a tendency for settling to occur, especially if the paint has been on the shelf for several months. It is necessary to thoroughly mix the paint before using. If possible, shake the can of paint on a mechanical paint shaker. Before using, check the sides and bottom of the can to make sure all the pigment has been mixed in. If mixing is going to be done with a wooden paddle or an electric drill mixer, pour off half of the liquid from the top of the can into another can and then properly mix in any settled pigment; then remix the two parts together thoroughly.
Adhere to all application instructions, precautions, conditions, and limitations to obtain optimum performance. Refer to individual labels and tech sheets for detailed instructions when using associated products, etc. Vivid is a high solids products. Do not apply this paint in thick films or in more than four coats as poor adhesion may result. When applying by roller use a short nap (3/16 inch maximum) roller cover. Product can be thinned up to 10% (12 ounces per gallon) without any loss in performance. Do not thin beyond your state's compliant limit.
Coating performance, in general, is proportional to the degree of surface preparation. Follow recommendations carefully, avoiding shortcuts. Inadequate preparation of surfaces will virtually assure inadequate coating performance.
No antifouling paint can be effective under all conditions of exposure. Man made pollution and natural occurrences can adversely affect antifouling paint performance. Extreme hot and cold water temperatures, silt, dirt, oil, brackish water and even electrolysis can ruin an antifouling paint. Therefore, we strongly suggest that the bottom of the boat be checked regularly to make sure it is clean and that no growth is occurring. Lightly scrub the bottom with a soft brush to remove anything from the antifouling paint surface. Scrubbing is particularly important with boats that are idle for extended periods of time. The coating is most effective when the boat is used periodically.
