VC17m Extra is easy to apply by roller or airless spray and dries in minutes allowing for same day launchings. When it comes time to recoat the next year no sanding is required, just clean and apply. Now that’s easy!
VC17m Extra contains metallic copper and Biolux Slime blocking technology to protect your boat from zebra mussels, teredo worms, weed, algae and slime fouling. It’s the ideal paint for the Great Lakes, inland lakes and low fouling saltwater areas.
How Biolux Technology Works As sunlight diffracts through the water, it provides energy for algae to use in colonizing on the boat hull. Biolux acts at the surface of the paint film to inhibit the algae’s ability to conduct photosynthesis. Algae cannot therefore grow on the surface of the paint. Without Biolux, the surface of the paint film becomes coated with a layer of slime. That coating inhibits the release of copper, the primary antifouling agent in Ultra. Here, Biolux keeps the paint surface cleaner, allowing a greater release of copper. The resin technology system then assures a more even release over an extended period of time. What this means for boaters is simple: Biolux boosts antifouling performance by reducing slime build up.
This assures less drag, better fuel efficiency, less time spent scrubbing boat bottoms and, finally, longer lasting antifouling paint
