      Antifouling Boat Bottom Paint

      Locating the best Antifouling Bottom Paint for your boat is easy. Just consult Wholesale Marine’s three-question boat bottom paint finder. Our paint finder scours over 50 different bottom paint products across the four industry-leading manufacturers: Interlux, Pettit, Sea Hawk, and Aquaguard. Start by selecting the type of water your boat is used in and your hull material. Wholesale Marine has a bottom paint for everyone with our selection of boat bottom paints that are suitable for fiberglass, aluminum, wood, and steel hulled craft. Then select the antifouling paint type that best fits your needs and budget. Read on for some additional information about the antifouling paint types that are available from Wholesale Marine.

      Choosing the Right Antifouling Bottom Paint

      Hard antifouling bottom paints have a higher concentration of biocides that form a tough coating that resists wearing away. Hard bottom paints are the best choice for boats that are kept in the water all year long. Pettit offers a great product in their Trinidad Hard Antifouling Bottom Paint which has excellent adhesion and is also highly abrasion-resistant for long wear.

      Ablative Bottom Paints have layers that slowly wear away over time, to reveal fresh biocides and to reduce oxidation. Ablative bottom paints are ideal for boats that are trailed or are removed from the water seasonally. When shopping for ablative antifouling bottom paints, a fantastic performer is Interlux Micron CSC. Micron CSC uses Micron Technology, to provide long-lasting antifouling protection even when the boat is out of the water for extended periods of time.

      Aluminum Antifouling Bottom Paints must be copper free to avoid corrosion. The most common biocide used in aluminum boat bottom paints today is Econea, which can be found in Micron CF, Hydrocoat Eco, and Pacifica Plus. Econea offers unsurpassed protection and is non-corrosive to metals.

      Go Green with Waterbased Bottom Paint

      While it may seem counterintuitive to use a water-based boat bottom paint, they are an option to consider. Water-based bottom paints are easy to clean up as they thin with water, are environmentally friendly, and offer top performance and durability. One of the top-selling antifouling paints in the world is Pettit Hydrocoat – a water-based ablative bottom paint. Hydrocoat not only offers multi-season protection but is formulated to be tough enough to withstand frequent trailering, launching, and beaching.
