Slime, weed, barnacles, worms and other fouling are your sailing nemeses. They create drag, slowing you down, burning unnecessary fuel, reducing manoeuvrability, potentially damaging your hull and also causing environmental harm if moved to new habitats. The stakes are high, which explains why antifouling is such an important product. The fouling challenge can vary massively with tiny geographic movements. Even within the same marina, each berth may experience different fouling challenges. With three products in the range, we have a product to suit your boat
BENEDITS OF ANTIFOULING
Our highest performance eroding antifouling which gives up to 18-24 months fouling protection from 2 coats, to maximise your time on the water. Based on copper oxide boosted with co-biocides for ultimate strength. Suitable for yachts, cruisers, barges & commercial vessels with a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots. D Plus Antifouling is compatible with the vast majority of alternate antifouling paints. If in doubt, check first on the Teamac compatibility chart. Can be applied onto all substrates except aluminium. Ideal for use in the most challenging fouling areas.
- 18-24 months protection (2 coats)
- Can be launched just 8 hours after application
- Unique co-biocide technology for ultimate fouling protection
- Compatible with majority of competitor products
- Available in 1L, 2.5L & 5L in Black, Blue, Green, Red & Grey.
- 20L available only in Red.
A high performance eroding antifouling which gives up to 18-24 months fouling protection from 2 coats, to maximise your time on the water. As well as being an excellent antifouling, this paint also performs well as a Boottopping due to its harder film matrix. Suitable for boats, yachts, barges and commercial vessels with a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots. Teamac Antifouling A Plus is compatible with the vast majority of alternate antifouling paints. If in doubt, check first on the Teamac compatibility chart. Can be applied onto all substrates including aluminium. Ideal for use in the most challenging fouling areas.
- - 18-24 months protection (2 coats)
- - Can be launched just 8 hours after application
- - Suitable for aluminium hulls
- - Suitable as a boottopping paint
- - Available in bright white, black, blue & red
- - Available in 500ml, 1L & 2.5L
An effective economical, eroding antifouling paint that offers a combination of good compatibility and competitive performance. Based on copper oxide, Teamac Protector II Antifouling is suitable for boats or yachts with a cruising speed of 25 to 30 knots. Suitable for use in all but the most challenging fouling areas. For those areas we would recommend Teamac Antifouling D Plus. Also ideal for freshwater. Not to be used on Aluminium, for this we recommend A Plus.
- - 12 months protection
- - Compatible with most other antifoulings
- - Launch without further preparation up to 3 months after application
- - Ideal for fresh and brackish water
- - Available in 1L & 2.5L in Black, Blue & Red - 5L only available in Red & Blue
To get the best from your antifouling, we recommend the following schemes when applying onto a bare substrate.
ONE PACK SCHEME
Why is it important to apply the correct volume of product?
Eroding antifouling works using the friction of water moving across the surface to remove the film in a controlled manner. As the film of paint is eroded away, fresh biocide is exposed, ensuring a consistent performance throughout the season. If too little paint is applied, the film is worn through before the end of the season, allowing fouling to take hold as the biocide protection is gone. Amount Gelcoat eroded Leached Layer Rosin-based Antifouling Primer Figures are an estimate only. For customised volumes please contact the technical department – 01482 320194.
It is important to use your boat regularly to allow the eroding process to take place. Boats which sit unused for long periods of time end up with a large leached layer of paint. This means the biocide has dissolved out of the paint film, but the remaining paint film is still intact, trapping fresh biocide inside. This leads to a reduction in performance and a less stable surface, requiring increased preparation before a new coating is applied.
