ANTIFOULING


Antifouling is the most important product you will use, when you are maintaining your yacht and is essential in order to keep the hull in good condition. Antifouling contains biocides, the active compounds which repel fouling such as slime, weed, barnacles, corals and other species.

The result and durability of the antifouling are dictated by the thickness applied.

To obtain the recommended total thickness of 80 100 microns, you must apply 2 coats of the antifouling using a brush. Using the roller tends to make the coat thinner.


  1st. Coat 40 50 microns 8 10 sqm / liter
  2nd Coat 40 50 microns 8 10 sqm / liter
Total 80 100 micron 4 - 5 sqm / liter



Calculating the quantity of antifouling for Powerboats you should buy and use: (other hull types are different)


  Length at waterline x ( Beam + Draught ) = sqm divided by 4 5 sqm / liter
Ladenstein 68 17.20 m x ( 4.50 m + 1.20m ) = 98 sqm Total 19.6 24.4 Liter
Ladenstein 72 18.60 m x ( 4.60 m + 1.30m ) = 110 sqm Total 22.0 - 27.5 Liter
