Antifouling Bottom Paint

Slime, weeds, and barnacles aren’t just unsightly- marine organisms can also affect your boats performance and durability. Antifouling Bottom Paints from Wholesale Marine feature antifouling for racing sailboats and powerboats, multi season protection, and paints for any kind of boat you can imagine. Wholesale Marine only carries paint products tough enough to withstand frequent trailering, launching and beaching.

How do you know if you need a Hard Bottom or Ablative Bottom Paint? Hard Bottom Paints have a higher concentration of biocides, and form a tough coating that does not wear away. Hard Bottom Paints are generally recommended for boats that are faster and kept in the water. Ablative Bottom Paints have layers that slowly wear down over time, revealing fresh biocides, reducing oxidation, but due to its limited life, Ablative Bottom Paints are thereby recommended for boats stored out of water.

Interlux Antifouling Bottom Paints can reduce friction, improve fuel efficiency, and are perfect for usage in fresh and low fouling salt water. Interlux uses metallic copper to achieve complete protection in freshwater or low fouling saltwater. Interlux features its renowned Micron technology that provides excellent, long lasting antifouling protection by using less copper more efficiently than traditional high copper bottom paints.

Pettit Paints feature the ideal combination of high-speed performance and durability with environmental responsiveness. Racing and recreational finishes are easy to apply and quick to launch. Pettit Paints offers durable multi-season protection with quick clean-up and little to no odor.
