Aquagard is a favorite paint for boatyards and do-it-yourself boat owners as i t rolls on easily, dries quickly, is safer to work with, has no toxic fumes, cleans up easily, is better for the environment and yields excellent antifouling results Thanks to advances in paint resin chemistry, the leach rate of the active is controlled so Aquagard requires less copper content to provide outstanding performance and a lower price point. As the boat moves through the water and the paint ablates, it continuously exposes fresh antifouling layers repelling barnacles and soft growth. Aquagard is a multi-season paint when applying multiple coats.

Anti-fouling bottom paint can help keep your boat's hull in good condition, prevent bottom fouling , and will help your boat move through the water faster and more efficiently. In some places, hull fouling occurs so quickly that boats can only be left in the water a couple of days before noticeable and difficult to remove growth can occur, while in other places boats can be left longer without bottom paint. It is best to ask other boaters in your area about the common boat bottom fouling threats and how quickly they occur. Anti-fouling bottom paints use biocides, usually cuprous oxide or copper thiocyanate, to discourage marine organisms from growing on the hull. TBT tributyltin was a commonly used biocide, but is illegal for most common purposes now. Ablative bottom paints are designed to be applied in a fairly thick layer that wears away like soap, constantly exposing fresh paint. Others are hard epoxy or vinyl paints impregnated with biocide, which leaches out and leaves the depleted paint on the hull.
