Pettit Hydrocoat

$99.99 each

Water-Based Multi-Season Ablative Antifouling Paint

Hydrocoat is the most advanced water-based, multi-season ablative antifouling available. It offers exceptional multi-season protection against all types of fouling. Hydrocoat’s innovative technology replaces the harsh solvents found in most bottom paints with water, resulting in an easier application and clean up, with no heavy solvent smell. Hydrocoat’s ablative surface wears away with use, exposing fresh biocides while eliminating paint build up and the need for sanding. The low-odor formula is so environmentally friendly, it exceeds even the most stringent air pollution regulations. Hydrocoat withstands frequent trailering, beaching, and launching. Its unique formula allows unlimited dry time to launch, so you can paint in the fall or winter.
