About COPPERCOAT

COPPERCOAT is the combination of a specially developed, zero VOC, water miscible epoxy resin and 99% pure atomized copper powder. Each liter of resin is combined with 4.4 lbs of ultra fine copper powder, making COPPERCOAT the strongest copper based anti-fouling available. No other anti-fouling exposes as much active copper to unwanted marine life as COPPERCOAT.

Classified as non-leaching, this highly effective coating is considerably kinder to the environment than its' ablative competitors, while continuing to deter growth year after year. Indeed, correctly applied treatments resist barnacles and other hard growth for a decade or more!

COPPERCOAT alone has a proven lifespan of 10+ years, with an unequaled continual sales record dating back to 1991. No other copper based epoxy anti-fouling has the enviable pedigree of the original COPPERCOAT

The advantages of COPPERCOAT

COPPERCOAT is the obvious choice for owners searching for increased performance with reduced costs from:

  • UNBEATABLE LONGEVITY - Unlike regular coatings, hard-wearing COPPERCOAT remains effective for many seasons. A single treatment of COPPERCOAT is proven to remain effective for at least ten years before a touch up may be needed along the waterline or the leading edge of the keel. Boats have been found that have the original COPPERCOAT on their hulls after 22 years with a single touch up.
  • EXTRA EFFICIENCY - The combination of high copper content and the smoothness of the surface ensures a cleaner hull with less drag. Powerboat owners report increased speed at lower revs, meaning a lower rate of fuel consumption. Sailboat racers can burnish the copper for an even smoother finish.
  • FIBERGLASS OSMOSIS PROTECTION - COPPERCOAT is based upon an inherently waterproof epoxy resin. As such, the application of COPPERCOAT helps to provide an additional barrier coat to the bottom of the hull.
  • LOW MAINTENANCE - When properly applied, you only need to wipe the hull at regular intervals to remove the buildup of slime and soft growth. If the boat is hauled out of the water, it can be pressure washed with no damage to the COPPERCOAT and the COPPERCOAT will not “die” from being out of the water, even for long periods of time.
  • ENVIRONMENTAL FRIENDLINESS - Being epoxy based COPPERCOAT is classified as non-leaching and causes less harm to the environment than conventional anti-fouling paints. The complete treatment is fully approved for use by both professional applicators and the do-it-yourself boat owners. Furthermore, COPPERCOAT holds the following approvals in the US and UK:

    • US EPA approved since 2009
    • California DPR Reg #85396-1-AA since January 2012. In 2015 CA established maximum copper leach rates for anti-fouling products. Since COPPERCOAT is non-leaching, it is significantly under those rates.
    • Approved by the Health and Safety Executive, in compliance with UK and EU law, HSE Certificate Number 7532
    • Fully complies with current (2001) International Maritime Organisation (IMO) Resolution MEPC.102(48)
