Peace of Mind Protection with Pettit's New HD Line of Bottom Paints
Pettit Marine Paint Challenges the Status Quo Offering New Odyssey HD and Trinidad HD Bottom Paints With 18 Month HD (Hull Defense) Limited Warranty
Rockaway, N.J. – Pettit takes pride in creating the most trusted and reliable products in the
business. Odyssey HD and Trinidad HD multi-season bottom paints will change the way bottom
paints are viewed forever. We challenged ourselves by asking, “Isn’t it time multi-year paints
were covered by a multi-year warranty?” The answer is, yes.
Odyssey HD multi-season antifouling combines controlled polishing ablative technology with a
high copper content to provide a paint film strong enough to handle the tough marine
environment from coast to coast. Odyssey HD is compatible over most finishes, is V.O.C.
compliant in all states and will not build up over time leaving running surfaces smooth and
clean. Odyssey HD's copolymer resins withstand hauling and relaunching without losing
effectiveness for both power and sailboats. After trying the new paint, Edward Parker, Service
Manager from Safe Harbor City Boatyard said, “The dry times are awesome! That’s key to a
boatyard when they can put multiple coats on in one day. It saves us time and money getting
boats done quickly.”
Trinidad HD provides excellent, long lasting protection, even under the toughest antifouling
conditions. Trinidad HD provides dependable in-water antifouling protection while meeting the
330 grams per liter V.O.C. regulations. Trinidad HD does not require movement and works
equally as well at the dock or underway. Its durable, hard and modified epoxy finish has
excellent adhesion, and is highly abrasion resistant. A good choice for powerboat or sailboat
use in tropical and other warm waters where extreme fouling exists. Trinidad HD is compatible
over most hard antifouling finishes. Wayne Morrison from Shelter Island Boatyard, San Diego
California said “It is imperative that we have a quality, fast drying multi-season antifouling that
carries consistent pigmentation and a smooth, clean color finish. We are proud to be using the
most recent technology that Pettit has to offer in Trinidad HD and it is our feature antifouling
Both of these bottom paints focus heavily on boatyard efficiency. Pettit built both products to dry
significantly faster, offer increased coverage, and reduce odor for a more applicator friendly
application. For example, Trinidad HD and Odyssey HD both dry 5 times faster than our
competition at an air temperature of 70ºF.
HD (Hull Defense) limited warranty covers against hard growth for up to 18 months. If within 18
months a vessel with either Odyssey HD or Trinidad HD applied experiences hard growth
beyond the disclaimed amount, pro-rated product compensation is offered.
