Info & Guides
APPLICATION SYSTEMS:
Trinidad XSR is easily applied by brush, roller or spray. When rolling, use only a high-quality (maximum 3/8in nap) short nap roller cover. Apply using thin coats; over-application of this product will virtually assure inadequate coating performance. Mix paint thoroughly to ensure biocides and pigments are evenly dispersed throughout the can. All surfaces must be clean, dry and properly prepared prior to painting.

PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACES: If the previous coating is in good condition, thoroughly sand with 80 grit sandpaper then solvent clean with 120 Brushing Thinner to remove residue. Apply two finish coats of this product. If the previous coating is soft or in poor condition, remove to the bare surface by sanding or using EZ Speed Strip. Proceed with appropriate bare system as described below.
NOTE: *Tin copolymer paints and modified antifouling paints (SPC technology) should be sealed with a coat of 6627 Tie Coat Primer, allow to dry 4 hours and apply new antifouling paint. This document is intended as a guide only, additional preparation may be involved due to condition and age of substrate.

BARE FIBERGLASS: All bare fiberglass, regardless of age, should be thoroughly cleaned with Pettit 92 Bio-Blue Hull Surface Prep or de- waxed several times with Pettit D-95 Dewaxer.

SANDING METHOD: Sand the hull thoroughly with 80-grit sandpaper to a dull, frosty finish and rewash the sanded surface with 120 Brushing Thinner to remove sanding residue. Then apply two thin coats of this product, following application instructions. Careful observation of application instructions will help ensure long-term adhesion of this and subsequent years antifouling paint.

TO ELIMINATE THE SANDING METHOD: Thoroughly clean, de-wax and etch the surface with Pettit 92 Bio-Blue Hull Surface Prep using a course Scotch-Brite pad. Thoroughly rinse all residue from surface and let dry. Then apply one coat of Pettit Protect High Build Epoxy Primer. Consult the primer label for complete application and antifouling top coating instructions. Apply two thin coats of this product.

BLISTERED FIBERGLASS: See Pettit Technical Bulletin TB-1000 Gelcoat Blister Repair and Prevention Specification for detailed instructions.

BARRIER COAT: Fiberglass bottoms potentially can form osmotic blisters within the gelcoat and into the laminate. To render the bottom as water impermeable as possible, prepare the fiberglass surface as mentioned above (sanding method) then apply two to three coats of Pettit-Protect 4700/4701 Gray High Build Epoxy Primer or Pettit Protect 4100/4101 White High Build Epoxy Primer per label directions. Apply two thin coats of this product. See Technical Bulletin TB-1000 for detailed instructions.

STEEL HULLS: To remove loose rust and scale from the metal surface, scrape, sandblast or wire brush. Solvent clean the surface to remove grease and dirt then apply one or two coats of Pettit 6980 Rustlok Primer* followed by two coats of Pettit 4700/4701 High Build Epoxy Primer. Follow with two thin coats of Trinidad XSR.

KEELS - STEEL OR CAST IRON: Abrade surface to bright metal; clean off residue. Apply one coat of 6980 Rustlok Steel Primer, allowing to dry only 1-2 hours prior to over coating with one coat of 4700/4701 High Build Epoxy Primer. Then, if fairing is required, apply 7050 EZ Fair Epoxy Fairing Compound followed by one additional coat of 4700/4701 High Build Epoxy Primer, finish with two thin coats of Trinidad XSR.

BARE ALUMINUM: For maximum corrosion resistance, sandblast to clean, bright metal and remove blasting residue with clean, dry compressed air or a clean brush. Immediately apply one to two coats of Pettit 4400/4401 Aluma Protect Epoxy Primer, followed by two coats of Pettit Protect High Build Epoxy Primer (4700/4701 or 4100/4101), per label directions.
