Is black widow compatable with baltoplate? (Can it be applied directly over well prepared Baltoplate?)
I don't see any information about Black Widow on top of Baltoplate. You will have to call Pettit: 800-221-4466

I called Pettit and was told that yes, it is. They said to scratch up the Baltoplate using 80 grit paper. Then apply 3 coats Black Widow. The wet sane with 1000 grit (seems kind of fine to me but that's what they said) OR polish with a good rubbing compound.
can this paint go over Interlux Offshore Epoxy
Their tech data sheet says it can go over a hard paint in good condition, sand first with 80 and solvent clean.

Black Widow - Fab Alternative to VC-17
Over-coats over old paint - no stripping, just sand with 80, paint a few coats, burnish and you're ready to go. Half gallon (two quarts) gave us to coats on our 22 foot mini-tonner. This was so easy versus applying VC-17
