COPPERCOATTM – long life underwater treatment
Developed in the 1980′s and available to the public since 1991, Coppercoat™ is possibly the most powerful and long lasting anti-fouling 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 obvious choice for owners searching for increased performance with reduced costs from
- 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 15 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 if required.
- 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 and unpleasant annual stripping and repainting of hulls. Simply hose down the hull at regular intervals (commonly once a year), to remove any build up 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 Organisation (IMO) Resolution MEPC.102(48).We will not deliver to countries where it is not allowed until coppercoat is approved.
