Metal-free antifouling paint that’s a must for aluminum bottoms and better for the environment
Conventional, copper-based bottom paints will eat through an aluminum hull. Because there’s no copper in AlumiPaint AF, it won’t cause galvanic corrosion, so it’s great for painting pontoons, aluminum hulls, and underwater metals like running gear and outdrives. Also, copper is heavy. But an AlumiPaint AF coating weighs less and doesn’t make your engine work as hard, which lowers your fuel bill. No copper and low VOCs also mean it won’t cause harm to delicate marine ecosystems.
If your boat sits idle for a time, AlumiPaint AF doesn’t need scuffing to reactivate its antifouling protection before launching. When you’re ready to go, just hop in, let the good times roll, and don’t worry about those bottom-hugging, slimy, crusty things.
