Antifouling

Find the perfect underwater paint for your sports boat in our Antifouling Online Shop!
We offer a large selection of various types of anti-fouling products from major brands to protect your boat as best as possible against fouling. Without protection, a wide variety of aquatic organisms could settle on the hull, such as barnacles, algae or mussels. This causes drag, as the boat becomes heavier and heavier and the sailing speed is reduced. As a result, fuel consumption increases, leading to greater costs. For this reason, applying antifouling is a must for every boat. Learn more about Antifouling... Go to Video...

Which antifouling is the right one for my boat?

- Factors that should be considered when buying antifouling paint for your yacht -

The condition and type of existing coats of paint

It is very important to know or find out which type of antifouling was applied last. If it is still in good condition, you might be ok with just carrying out some boat maintenance and sanding the surface a little, then apply new coats in order to renew the anti-fouling capabilities. SVB offers a wide range of antifouling paints from renowned manufacturers, such as InternationalHempel, SEATEC, Tikal and Jotun, with the best value for money. If the existing antifouling is in such poor condition that it has already become porous and is flaking off, the old antifouling must be completely removed before new antifouling is applied. You can find out how to do this in our video on removing antifouling.
 

Which underwater area should be protected?

No antifouling coating can be universally applied to any underwater area. In addition to hull antifouling, there is also antifouling specifically for metallic propellers and Z-drives. This area requires a special antifouling coating, which is usually supplied in spray bottles. Similarly, not every antifouling is suitable for aluminium or steel. When buying anti-fouling, you should make sure that it matches the material of your boat. The fairway and the type of sports boat (sailboat, motorboat or trailer boat) also play a role when it comes to choosing the right antifouling.
 

Self-polishing antifouling, hard antifouling or thin-film antifouling?

Which antifouling should be chosen depends on what was applied previously. Self-polishing versions are mostly used on slower boats and sailing boats, while hard antifouling is perfect for fast boats and motor yachts. Thin-film antifouling does not work by delivering active ingredients to the water, but by creating a very smooth surface, which makes it difficult for organisms to attach.
 

The water and conditions in which you navigate

The choice of antifouling also depends on the water temperature. Whether in the North Sea, Baltic Sea, Mediterranean, inland waters or Lake Constance - depending on where you navigate, other pollutants could find their way to your hull. Waters with a high water temperature, greater levels of pollution and low water exchange or current lead to increased fouling of the hull and more marine organisms. 

The quality and environmental compatibility of the antifouling

The effectiveness of underwater paints depends on whether they have been chosen correctly and, of course, on the bioactive ingredients. Unfortunately, not all antifouling paints on the market are environmentally friendly. Versions such as Hempel's Silic One, for example, are referred to as biocide-free antifoulings and have low VOC values (Volatile Organic Compounds). These antifouling systems are also good for the environment - or at least friendlier.
