Toxic paints are widely used  all over the world since  they are designed to be used in many circumstances. the  range of products which we use in many kinds of yacht and motor boats,  sailing types or  speed boats. Our extensive  experience in antifouling paint use  for many years  and almost all the other  products ,  Comments from our many loyal and satisfied customers  has  shaped  our  experience. For your own individual requirements you need to select the correct antifouling  which is really important. Yacht

on the GRP  boats all toxic paints are suitable to be applied to the body.  If applied to a bare GRP hull, first primer coat is necessary that we recommend  you to take into consideration . For a single component system, we recommend to use  Primocon.   a  two-component epoxy primer or VC Tar II Gelshield  Copper, aluminum-based non-toxic paints made from any material can be applied to boats.  meanwhile Steel boats are not on the cover of the current toxic dye, you will need to implement the necessary  primers. For a single component system, we recommend that you use Primocon. For a system of two-component epoxy primer , type of coating is  selected  based on many factors,  such as the state of the body  and boat size

aluminum primers  are designed to produce an antifouling paint.  Trilux is designed specifically for use on aluminum boats.  Trilux, although similar to other toxic paint, cuprous oxide is not used.  Trilux,does  not  damage the aluminum and it comes with the formula which is designed specifically  that contains Cuprous Thiocyanate. When applied as a primer on the body it makes a great surface , the perfect blending of resins and biocides in a Trilux antifouling protection is offered. Trilux  comes in bright, sharp colors which are black and white. Designed exclusively for use on aluminum slip Trilux In addition to GRP, wood and other metals also can be applied on the boat.

Most of the toxic paint needs  wet sanding, washing with water and drying can be applied  after being  pre-coated with antifouling paint that can be applied directly on top of the primer. Antifouling performance in the overall implementation  depends on the application film thickness.  toxic paints designed for thick application viscosity, or  thickness in order to ensure the best results.  Thinning of an antifouling can reduce the properties and  affect the protection longevity  therefore not recommended.  Most importantly, it depends on the film thickness of antifouling performance and, therefore, premature deterioration can be caused by thinning the antifouling which may adversely affect the antifouling performance.

In order to protect the body of the boat throughout the season to ensure adequate amounts of biocide antifouling paint to be applied with  the right amount of antifouling which is very important. The amount of antifouling depends  body shape and size of  the boat.  using the Paint Selector tool, and  amount you need to select the correct antifouling paint. Antifouling paint can be applied on any hard bronze.  No primer is needed, but the best combination of surface preparation is required for the bronze.   Bronze, metal, paint applied directly on the propellers. however  before the application of the antifouling , the   metal must be cleaned and polished. Etching process is performed should be careful because the etching can cause imbalance  by changing the shape of propellers.
