Product Description

Fiberglass Bottomkote Racing Bronze provides season long protection against fouling organisms. Fiberglass Bottomkote Racing Bronze uses an acrylic resin to provide ease of application, and a hard, smooth, racing finish, that is compatible with most other types of antifouling paints.

  • Can be hauled out and trailered, on a short term basis, without loss of antifouling capability
  • Can be wet-sanded and burnished to provide an even smoother surface for racing boats
  • For use on fiberglass, wood and primed underwater metals (except aluminum)
  • Effective in fresh and low fouling salt water against barnacles and zebra mussels
