bottom paint vs. launch date

when using Trinidad SR bottom paint, is it necessary to apply it directly before launch or can it be applied three months before launch. In some cases, I understand that bottom paints need to be applied just prior to launch so that the paint will not loose effectiveness.

I'm about three months from launch and wanted to check "application of bottom paint" off my list .

Thanks to anyone who may know about this. I did not see anything about this on the Trinidad SR product data sheet: http://www.pettitpaint.com/fileshare...rinidad-SR.pdf

Center section of the PDF you linked to under Application Data says the following: launched up to 60 days after painting.
