Pettit Announces Ultra-Slick Black Widow Antifouling Paint


Coating Manufacturer Releases Revolutionary High-Performance Finish

Pettit Marine Paint, leading manufacturer of high performance marine coatings, announced today the release of the highest-performance racing finish yet – Black Widow. The slickest, fastest, ultra-smooth burnishable racing finish available, Pettit Paint Black Widow is also a powerful dual-biocide bottom paint that provides multi-season protection in all waters.

Easily applied by roller, brush or spray, and burnishable to a metallic “gun-metal” shine, Black Widow makes an excellent paint for the bottom of any boat where speed is the number one priority. Racing sailboats, bass boats, personal watercraft and high performance offshore powerboats will benefit from Black Widow’s four strong slickening agents: Molybdenum Disulfide, Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), Graphite and Silicon – all powerful lubricants that reduce drag. This translates into greater speeds and lower fuel consumption. The durable coating resists the elements and the slick finish is easy to clean.

“With the release of Black Widow, we are adding functionality to our coatings that goes well beyond bottom protection,” said Don Zabransky, vice president sales & marketing, Pettit Marine Paint. “Bottom paints keep a boat clean for maximum efficiency. By making it the slickest paint available, we’ve taken this performance to a new level. With Black Widow, your boat will eat the competition!”
