Pettit Paints Shine in Head-to-Head Testing

The editors of Practical Sailor magazines recently named Pettit Marine Paint products among the top performers in their annual marine paint comparison tests.

In an article that appears in the March 2001 issue of both publications, Pettit Trinidad SR and Pettit ACP Ultima were placed in the best-performing category among anti-fouling bottom paints. Trinidad SR was also noted to have performed better than any other bottom paint currently available on the US market - for the second year in a row.

In a related article assessing marine varnishes, Pettit Captain’s Varnish was one of three products that received a “best” rating, outperforming more than a dozen other competing varnishes.

Practical Sailor is noted for its strict, unbiased product assessments, so we’re proud to see that we continue to do so well in their tests,” said John Ludgate, Pettit vice president of sales and marketing. “We try to offer products that exceed our customers expectations.”

Pettit Marine Paints offers a broad line of anti-fouling bottom paints, topside paints, marine varnishes and coatings. Phone: 800-221-4446.
