EPaint Ecominder Antifouling Boat Bottom Paint, Black
EPaint ECOMINDER® Black is an advanced antifouling paint recommended for all recreational pontoon, sail and powerboats in both fresh and low fouling salt waters.
ECOMINDER is easy to apply and is the greenest and safest antifouling paint ever approved for use by the U.S. EPA. This paint is free of harmful volatile organic solvents and toxins that persist in our environment. ECOMINDER is actually formulated with bio-polymers derived from renewable resources, even the container is recycled.
ECOMINDER is copper-free and will not promote corrosion on metal surfaces. Boats with ECOMINDER may be hauled and launched out of the water and the unlimited dry to launch time also allows for painting in the fall before winter storage.
Features Zinc Omadine which is designed to control slime, algae, bacteria and ePaint patented photo-active technology to deter the settling and attachment of hard-shell type organisms.
