Pettit's EZ-Poxy² Wins 2014 NMMA Miami Innovation Award

Marine Paint Company’s Hassle-Free Durable and High-Gloss Finish Recognized as the Most Innovative New Boat Care and Maintenance Solution

Rockaway, N.J. — Pettit Marine Paint, leading manufacturer of high performance marine coatings, announced today that its innovative EZ-Poxy² has won the Miami Innovation Award at the 2014 Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show in the Boat Care and Maintenance category. Organized by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) and judged by members of Boating Writers International (BWI), the award recognizes innovative distinction from other products currently being manufactured, benefit to the marine industry and consumers, practicality, and cost-effectiveness. Pettit’s award-winning EZ-Poxy²’s single-serving gel pouches of hardener offer a longer shelf life for a more user-friendly application – even for do-it-yourselfers –lowering the cost of boat maintenance and upkeep.

“We are thrilled to be recognized with another prestigious honor from the NMMA,” said Don Zabransky, vice president sales marketing, Pettit Marine Paint. “EZ-Poxy² is tough and long lasting, and provides a more beautiful finish, for a better price, and a fraction of the hassle of competitive products. This recognition, along with the recent IBEX innovation award for our Hydrocoat Eco is a testament to our commitment to developing industry leading coatings.”

Pettit’s new two-part topside enamel, EZ-Poxy², provides a durable and high-gloss finish while eliminating the uncertainties associated with traditional two-part paints. Offering greater surface compatibility than any other product in the marine industry, the silicone-enhanced polyurethane paint can be applied over any previously painted surface, gel coat or wood. A combination of added gloss, wear resistance and UV protection makes this enamel exceptionally durable helping to maintain a boat’s polished and pristine look for years. Available in a wide variety of colors, the paint is easily applied with a roller and brush, and reduces the effects of brush strokes during application for a clean finish equivalent to that of a spray. Forgiving and user-friendly, the solution eliminates the need for exact mixing ratios.

After evaluating the submission and determining its truly innovative qualities, BWI Judge Lenny Rudow commented humorously, “If you love your boat, Pettit!”
