Download Free Guide to Antifouling Paint

Monday, April 14, 2014

 The choice and use of antifouling paints is one of the most common and complicated issues for boat owners. Antifouling 101, a comprehensive, free guide from Interlux®, exposes the many myths and demystifies the many misunderstandings about antifouling paints.

Protecting a boat from marine growth is an unavoidable but absolutely necessary task. Antifouling 101 discusses the different types of fouling - weed, shell and slime - how an antifouling paint works (and what goes into it) and non-biocidal, foul release coatings. A glossary of terms helps explain the technology of antifouling paints.
