Coppercoat Antifouling Paint

The most durable and long lasting anti-foul
Available to the public since 1991, Coppercoat is the most durable and long lasting anti-foul currently available.  Millions of boat owners are in the habit of lifting and re-painting their boats each year – Coppercoat puts an end to this costly and time consuming exercise. This hard wearing, densely copper filled resin is protecting over 50,000 boats worldwide, with a single treatment commonly providing a high level of protection for a decade or more. Coppercoat is suitable for DIY or professional application, by roller or spray and can be used on all surfaces including GRP, iron, steel, wood and aluminium.

Unbeatable Longevity – Unlike regular coatings, hardwearing Coppercoat remains effective for many seasons. A single treatment of Coppercoat is proven to remain effective for at least ten years. The first boats treated are still clean after 20 seasons!

Extra Efficiency – The combination of high copper content and a unique blend of biocides ensures ultra-low growth rates and a clean hull. Motorboat owners report increased speed at lower revs, meaning a lower rate of fuel consumption and less engine wear. Professional racers can burnish the surface for a full racing finish.

GRP Osmosis Protection – Coppercoat is based upon an inherently waterproof epoxy resin. As such, the application of Coppercoat helps to protect GRP vessels against osmotic attack.

Low Maintenance – No more expensive, unpleasant annual stripping and repainting of hulls. Simply hose down the hull at regular intervals (commonly once a year), to remove any buildup of slime.

Environmentally Friendly – Being epoxy based Coppercoat is classified as non-eroding and causes less harm to the environment than conventional anti-foul paints. The complete treatment has been tested and approved by the Health and Safety Executive, in compliance with UK and EU law. Holding HSE Certificate Number 7532 our anti-fouling is fully approved for use by both professional tradesmen and the general public. Furthermore, Coppercoat fully complies with current (2001) International Maritime Organization (IMO) Resolution MEPC.102(48).
