WEST MARINE WBA Dual-Biocide Water-Based Ablative Antifouling Paint

Professional-grade antifouling paint that is effective against hard and soft growth, WBA’s innovative formula replaces harmful solvents found in most bottom paints with water, for easier application and cleanup, with low VOCs and no heavy solvent smell. WBA’s surface wears away with use, which exposes fresh biocides and eliminates paint buildup—along with the need for heavy sanding at haulout. WBA stands up to trailering, beaching, and launching—and with unlimited dry time to launch, you can paint at a time convenient to you.

  • Recommended Usage: All fouling waters
  • Biocide: 25.25% Cuprous oxide
  • Additives: Irgarol
  • Number of Coats Recommended: 2-3
  • Coverage: 400sq.ft./gal.
  • Drying Time: To overcoat: 2hrs.; To launch: 16hrs. @ 70°F
