Premium HRT is a new multi-season antifouling paint that replaces Pettit Unepoxy Plus & Ultima SSA. Equally effective on both power and sailboats, this high-copper hybrid paint combines the durability of hard modified finishes with the antifouling effectiveness of ablative paints. Hybrid or hard finishes are great for high performance and trailered boats.
Hybrid Reactive Technology formula utilizes high-density biocide and film modifiers for better color consistency, less yearly build-up (less sanding), and lower finish weight, while providing a smoother finish than traditional paints.
For use on properly prepared fiberglass, wood, and steel hulls. Compatible over most other bottom paints. Contains cuprous oxide; do not use on aluminum.
Available in Gallons, in your choice of Blue, Green, Red, or Black.

can you use the pettit flattening agent in this paint? i want a more satin or eggshell finish to my bottom paint
No, the paint is flat by nature. You can achieve a satin finish by burnishing Pettit Vivid or Black Widow.
Can this be applied over brand new hydrocoat? I put on two new coats and need two more. this is less than hydrocoat so I want to use it if it is compatible. It says multi season so I assume that means I don't have to pull my boat every year to recoat.
Give the Hydrocoat a light sanding and you can apply the HRT over it. For multi season paints, you should put on two coats for the first year, and one coat for each additional year.
