Hydrocoat SR takes the proven formula of Hydrocoat and adds the slime inhibitor Irgarol for effective prevention of tough hard and soft growth. Easier on the environment, the water-based formula of Hydrocoat SR eliminates the offensive solvents found in most bottom paints, for easy application and cleanup, with low VOCs and no heavy solvent smell. Hydrocoat SR’s surface wears away with use, which exposes fresh biocides and eliminates paint buildup along with the need for heavy sanding at haulout. Able to withstand trailering, beaching, and launching, the formula also allows unlimited dry time before launch—so you can paint when you want and launch when you please.

Comments about Hydrocoat SR Dual Biocide Ablative Antifouling Paint:
My boat is on a buoy in fertile saltwater from June through September. This keeps marine growth off just as effectively as the Micron Plus I used in the past, and doesn't suffocate the painter.
