Product Description:

ePaint SUNWAVE® is an economical, eco-friendly, photo-active and scrubbable release coating for boat bottoms. It is designed to provide a hard, mar-resistant finish to stand up to periodic maintenance scrubbing. 

SUNWAVE is water-based, does not contain pesticides and is very low VOC. Like all ePaint bottom coatings, SUNWAVE is copper-free and incorporates ePaint patented photo-active technology and ablative resin chemistry to wear away over time preventing heavy paint buildup. SUNWAVE will not promote galvanic corrosion and is safe to apply directly on bare aluminum surfaces.

SUNWAVE is recommended for fresh water and low to moderate fouling marine environments. SUNWAVE is safe for use on all rigid hull types (i.e. fiberglass, aluminum, steel, wood), trim tabs, and is self-priming on bare aluminum in many applications (prime for best adhesion). 

SUNWAVE is compatible with most epoxy primers but is not compatible over traditional antifouling paints (remove existing paint before applying). As SUNWAVE does not contain a biocide, it is not classified as an antifouling coating and like all release coatings may foul. Routine maintenance scrubbing and/or motion of the boat will likely be required to keep hull clean; due to ePaints proprietary photoactive technology, growth should readily wipe away with minimal paint loss.
