ACT uses Ablative Technology to provide excellent season-to-season protection. Ablative Technology enables it to erode away with use and eliminates the build-up of old spent coatings and the heavy sanding needed to remove them. ACT is very effective at controlling shell fouling such as barnacles and zebra mussels and contains a Slime Fighter to control weed, slime and algae growth which helps to keep the boat bottom cleaner longer. It provides excellent protection against all forms of marine fouling in waters with moderate to heavy fouling and can be used in fresh, salt and brackish waters.

How Much AntiFouling Paint Do I Need?
Determining how much antifouling you will need is fairly simple. You can calculate the area to paint by multiplying the length of your hull (LOA) by the beam and multiply by 0.85 (LOA x B x 0.85 = Area). Then divide the area by the coverage of the paint you’ve chosen to determine how many quarts per coat you will need.
Refer to the reference chart below for another quick estimate of how much antifouling paint is required for two coats.
