Hard Antifouls
have a resin system with a high proportion of insoluble resin making them hard, stopping the coat erode. The resin is packed with active ingredients, each particle being in direct contact with its neighour, as a particle is dissolved by the water the particle immediately behind it is exposed. Because of their nature and durability, they are ideal for high speed power boats, vessels which are mud berthed and racing yachts where a smooth finish can be achieved by burnishing the antifouling with wet abrasive paper before the boat is launched.
soft antifoulings have a simple resin formulation dispersing the active ingredients with the binder, offering good protection at an economical price. Traditional antifoulings should not be sanded.
