Pettit ECO HRT is a new copper-free antifouling paint that features Pettit's Hybrid Reactive Technology to provide a smooth, durable finish that wears away over time, eliminating paint build-up and the need to sand.
ECO HRT contains Econea instead of copper, making it safe and effective for use on pontoons, aluminum boats, and aluminum outdrives. Econea is an effective alternative to cuprous oxide, and boats painted with ECO HRT may be hauled and re-launched with no loss of antifouling effectiveness.
Hybrid Reactive Technology formula utilizes high-density biocide and film modifiers for better color consistency and up to 25% more coverage, while providing a smoother finish than traditional paints. Compatible over most bottom paints.
Available in Gallons, in your choice of Black, Blue or Pontoon Grey. Black also available in quarts.

I currently have Interlux Micron CRC on my fiberglass bottom.Should I remove the Micron CRC before applying:Premium HRT?
Give the Micron CSC a light sanding and you can paint over it with Premium HRT.
I just painted the bottom of my boat with this. It went on well, but be sure to use a short nap roller as specified. If it is too thick, it did not dry well. I put on three thin coats, compared to two coats of the previous paint. I will update this review after some time in the water.
