Specs

Product Overview

Hydrocoat Eco is a copper-free, water-based ablative paint that combines metal-free biocide Econea with a slime-fighting agent for multi-season protection against all types of marine fouling organisms.

With co-polymer ablative technology, Hydrocoat Eco wears away in a controlled fashion—which eliminates paint build-up over successive haulouts and reduces the need for sanding when the time comes to repaint. 

Compared to solvent-based antifouling paints, the water-based formula of Hydrocoat Eco is easier on the environment and on the person who applies it. This fact alone makes Hydrocoat Eco a great choice for applicators who are repelled by the strong solvent smell of other antifouling paints.

Because Hydrocoat Eco does not contain copper, it is also a viable choice for boats that are kept in the water in harbors where copper-based antifouling paints are not permitted.

Key Features

  • Water based, copper free, self-polishing ablative antifouling paint
  • Dual-biocides provide multi-season protection in all conditions
  • Uses the power of organic Econea for better protection and a greener earth
  • Co-polymer ablative technology eliminates sanding and paint build up
  • Easy application and cleanup with soap and water.
  • Will not lose effectiveness when removed from the water
