Coastal Copper 250 | Marine Paint | Black | Gallon
Coastal Copper 250 is a good performance single season ablative with full season protection against hard and soft growth in low-moderate fouling conditions. You will experience ablative polishing like a bar of soap, without the paint build-up and apply directly over any properly sanded hard or ablative bottom paint or epoxy primer. Coastal Copper 250 provides full season antifouling protection against barnacles, algae and hydroids in salt and fresh water on boat bottoms only. Its ablative copolymer base renders a smooth finish with durability and abrasion resistance. Coastal Copper 250 has universal application over all types of properly prepared bottom paints (except aluminum). For use in low fouling and cold waters where fouling challenge is low.
