• Eliminates the need to sand before applying antifouling
• Recommended over vinyl ester and other blister
resistant gelcoats where sanding is forbidden.
• Improved recoatability versus other no-sand primers.
Pettit 6998 Skip Sand Primer is a pre-treatment primer designed
to adhere tenaciously to unsanded fiberglass gelcoat.
When properly topcoated with antifouling paint, the primer and
antifouling will bond together strongly, resulting in a finish with
excellent overall adhesion. Pettit 6998 Skip Sand Primer is
ideal over vinyl ester gelcoats, where sanding of the gelcoat
may void osmotic blister warranties. It may be used over conventional
gelcoats as well, and as a tie-coat between two-part
epoxy primers and antifouling paints.
