Trinidad HD is a high copper, hard modified epoxy bottom paint ideal for power and sailboats in tropical or other warm waters with extreme fouling conditions. Unique Fast-Dry technology ensures strong adhesion on fiberglass, wood, and steel hulls, and meets stringent 330 gram per liter VOC regulations. Get exceptional antifouling protection whether docked or underway, with excellent abrasion resistance.
Compatible over most other hard bottom paints, Trinidad HD is Pettit's suggested alternative if you've previously used regular Trinidad antifouling paint, and is covered by Pettit's new HD (Hull Defense) 18 month manufacturer's limited warranty.
Available in Gallons in Black, Blue, and Red. A 3-Gallon pail is also available in Blue or Black.
Note: Do not apply Trinidad HD on aluminum hulls or outdrives.

Trinidad HD is heavily loaded with cuprous oxide.
As a result, 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
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.
When spraying, do not thin Trinidad HD more than
5% (6 ounces per gallon) or inadequate paint
film thickness will occur and premature
erosion of the finish will be likely.
Coating performance, in
general, is proportional to the degree of surface
preparation. Follow all recommendations very
carefully, avoiding any 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. The self-cleaning nature of the
coating is most effective when the boat is used
periodically. Boats and vessels should not be
scrubbed or cleaned for the first six months in the
water, and at
