Specs

Product Overview

Biocop TF Antifouling Paint uses ablative, dual-biocide technology to fight hard shell fouling and slime.

With its dual-biocide ablative formula, Biocop TF delivers multi-season protection against hard and soft marine growth. Biocop TF accomplishes this via a polymer binder system that is engineered to optimize the release of copper, which prevents hard shell fouling, and zinc omadine which prevents slime. 

As an ablative paint, Biocop TF slowly wears away or “self-polishes” at a controlled rate as the boat is used. The benefit of this slow wearing process is threefold: First, fresh biocide is constantly released for unbroken antifouling effectiveness. Second, the build-up of old, spent paint is reduced along with the need for sanding at haulout. Third, as Biocop TF wears away or “self-polishes”, drag is reduced and fuel efficiency is enhanced. Biocop is a good choice for salt-, brackish and freshwater on fiberglass, wood and steel hulls. Do not apply to aluminum hulls. Not for sale in States where prohibited by law.

Note: The following recommendations are for two coats of paint. All values are approximate.

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.
