Multi Season Antifoul
Developed in the 1980’s and available to the public since 1991,
Coppercoat is possibly the most powerful and long lasting anti-fouling solution available to the modern yachtsman. This hard wearing densely copper filled epoxy resin is successfully protecting tens of thousands of boats the world over, saving their owners the time and expense of annual re-antifouling. Many users have now enjoyed more than 15 years continual protection from a single treatment!
Coppercoat is the combination of a specially developed solvent-free epoxy resin and high purity (99%) copper. Each litre of resin is impregnated with 2 kilos of ultra fine spherical copper powder, the maximum allowed by law, making Coppercoat the strongest copper based anti-fouling available. Indeed no other anti-fouling exposes as much active copper to unwanted marine life.
Unlike many paint companies we do not manufacture different types of anti-fouling for different styles of boats and/or particular locations. Instead, Coppercoat is only available in one full-strength hard-wearing version. The epoxy carrier is filled with the maximum amount of copper allowed by law and consequently will keep fouling at bay in virtually all conditions. Furthermore, while the non-eroding epoxy can easily withstand use by high powered motor-boats and racing craft this coating is equally effective on commercial vessels as well as less frequently used and slower moving leisure vessels.
Classified as non-leaching, this highly effective coating is considerably kinder to the environment than its self eroding competitors whilst continuing to deter growth year after year. Indeed, correctly applied treatments resist weed and barnacle growth for a decade or more! 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 Organisation (IMO) Resolution MEPC.102(48).
Today Coppercoat alone has a proven lifespan of 10 years plus, with an unequalled continual sales record dating back to 1991. No other copper based epoxy anti-fouling has the enviable pedigree of the original… Coppercoat
