Biocide-free paints

Biocide-free paints

Biocide-free paints rely on physical properties such as fouling release paints which are free from
biocides. These paints are usually silicon based and forms a smooth non-stick surface on the hull
where fouling organisms have problems to attach. Other paints such as Epoxi can be useful for
underwater hull cleaning.

The video below shows the way to apply a silicone paint, in this case SilicOne from Hempel, on a leisure boat.
