Product Overview

Better for the environment copper free Pacifica Plus fights marine growth

Pacifica Plus is designed for those looking for a copper-free antifouling paint and is a great choice for use where cuprous oxide-based paints are not allowed. Instead of cuprous oxide, the dual-biocide formula uses copper-free Econea to prevent hard fouling and Biolux® technology to control slime.  

With its ablative formula, Pacifica Plus self-polishes as the boat is used. This lowers fuel consumption and helps to reduce the amount of harmful carbon dioxide and sulphur dioxide released into the air. And with its high-solids formula, the amount of VOCs released into the air is reduced for an additional benefit to the environment. 

The self-polishing ablative action of Pacifica Plus also reduces paint build-up along with the need for sanding at haulout. And because Pacifica Plus uses Econea rather than cuprous oxide as its primary biocide, this paint can safely be used on aluminum hulls outboards and outdrives without fear of galvanic corrosion.

Key features 

  • Uses Econea to prevent marine growth
  • Copper-free formula is better for the environment
  • Ablative formula reduces need for sanding at haul out
  • Available in bright colors

 Get the right amount of paint: 

Boat Type Bottom Paint
10' Dinghy 1 qt.
14' Outboard 1-2 qt.
18' Runabout 2 qt.
20' Sailboat 3 qt.
24' Runabout 3-4 qt.
30' Sailboat 1.5 gal.
32' Cruiser 1.5-2 gal.
36' Auxiliary 2 gal.
40' Cruiser 2.5 gal.
45' Sailboat 3-3.5 gal
50' Sportfisher 4+ gal.

Another way to determine bottom paint quantity is to estimate the approximate surface area of the hull below the waterline, using the following formula:

Length x Beam x .75 = Approximate underwater surface area in square feet.

Each paint has a “theoretical coverage” area, but most paints require at least two coats, so you can expect actual coverage to be no greater than half of the theoretical value.
