Aquagard AlumiKoat Brushable Antifouling Paint
Alumi-Koat is an acrylic copolymer, cuprous oxide pigmented coating formulated especially to prevent barnacles, algae, slime and other fouling organisms on vessels immersed in salt, brackish and fresh water. Non-toxic fumes, soap and water clean-up. Superior adhesion to aluminum, no barrier coat required. Controlled leach out. Paint can be applied over existing bottom paints that are clean, free of any debris, and dry.
Maintaining your boat's painted surfaces and periodically repainting the boat is important for more than just your boat's appearance. Marine paints and finishes help protect your boat's hull, deck, and other surfaces from the harsh effects of the sun, the corrosive effects of salt water, and algae and barnacle growth.

SAFETY: Antifouling dust can be a major health hazard and you should be wearing a respirator and particulate filter as well as eye and ear protection. Wear sleeves and gloves during application to keep the paint off your skin.
Remember: The adhesion of the new paint is only as good as the paint it is being applied over. Watch for signs of adhesion failure.
Mixing the Paint
Note: The antifouling in bottom paint is often heavy and will settle to the bottom of your can. Make sure you take the time and effort to properly mix your paint. If the copper isn’t evenly distributed, some areas of your hull will not be protected.
Applying the Paint
Note: Don’t add any thinner to the bottom paint unless the manufacturer specifies otherwise. Be sure to stir the paint before refilling the paint tray.
CAUTION: Be sure you leave all zinc anodes unpainted. If you are installing new zincs, make sure you do not paint over their mounting locations. Good electrical contact is essential for zincs to do their job.
