About Aqua Cote

Concerned with the environmental cost of traditional antifoul paint, in 2007 AquaCote began developing a new foul release range of coatings. We had five key criteria to fulfill:

Enhance boat performance
Reduce fuel consumption
Easy to apply and maintain
Provide multi-season protection
Cause no harm to marine life.

We’re pleased to say we succeeded in producing a leading antifouling system, available to boat owners worldwide.

AquaCote’s mission has always been to deliver a market leading antifouling system that doesn’t harm marine life. Our pursuit for ‘the best’ has taken us around the globe, to every ocean and all marine conditions. It’s also kept us chained to our lab desk, developing and improving our range of foul release coatings to ensure customers benefit from the most effective boat coatings available.

The Chemistry

Instead of using heavy metals and biocides to kill marine creatures, we chose Fluoropolymer based chemistry to create an extremely smooth, hydrophobic surface, making it almost impossible for fouling organisms to stick to and those that do can simply be wiped off. The high gloss finish would also reduce drag, maximize boat performance and reduce fuel consumption. Out of that initial shift to a more ecologically friendly antifouling paint came three products – AquaCote Hull, AquaCote Prop, and AquaCote Rib. Over the last eight years we’ve refined and tested our range to deliver the foul release coatings you apply today.
