Mailport December 2012 Issue

Mailport: December 2012

Non-copper Antifouling

In all the tests that Practical Sailor has done on bottom paints, I havenít seen any testing/comments about Ceram-Kote products (www.ceram-kote.com). Their latest formulation contains Econea biocide and should do well as an antifouling as well as being a very hard barrier coating. Iím using the pre-Econea version and have had it power brushed twice a month since December 2008, and it is a durable finish. With the inclusion of Econea in the new formula, the cleaning cycle should be reduced appreciably.
