Customers asking for Coppercoat

Symblast’s Paul Hockey has noticed a trend away from the use of conventional antifoul over the last 12 months, with as many as 60% of his customers asking for Coppercoat.

And Paul believes one of the key reasons is the low impact of the antifoul making it environmentally friendly.

“Our customers are concerned about the environment and the impact of traditional antifouls,” said Paul. “It’s a shame that the silicones are not suitable for yachts at this point as they don’t seem to have the performance of other antifouls.”

And he said that while there are silicone films which do work, they come at a price that is several times more expensive than Coppercoat.

“Over the long term, Coppercoat works out cheaper than conventional antifouls,” said Paul. “It’s a hard coating that can be scrubbed making it ideal for yachts.”
