Antifouling Coating Made for Vessels


With the release of the new, reduced VOC version of 3400 Series of Cukote Self-Polishing Copolymer Antifouling Bottom Paint, nautical coating company Sea Hawk Paints (Clearwater, Florida) has created a coating that meets California VOC limits and acts as an alternative for those who apply antifouling coatings to vessels.

According to Sea Hawk, Cukote 330 VOC coatings comply with the limits set by the California Air Quality Management Board, which restricts VOC presence to 330 grams per liter.

Cukote 330 VOC is a self-polishing copolymer coating that remains effective below the waterline on steel, glass and wood vessels. Formulated with cuprous oxide, Sea Hawk’s antifouling coating also acts as an ablative—no bottom paint builds up, which keeps underwater surfaces smooth.

“At Sea Hawk, expertise is the root of our innovation,” said Erik Norrie, Sea Hawk CEO. “The new Cukote 330 VOC antifouling bottom paint line is yet another way that Sea Hawk provides marine service professionals and do-it-yourselfers the highest quality solutions they need to protect and enhance the longevity and performance of their vessels while preserving the air quality for all.”

Cukote 330 VOC is available in black, dark blue, light blue, red and teal.
