Fiberglass Bottomkote® NT uses a dual resin technology that provides a universal durable, fast dry antifouling paint that delivers the benefits of both hard and ablative antifouling paints for use on all power and sail boats. The universal formula of Fiberglass Bottomkote® NT has durability of a traditional hard paint but has a slow polishing mechanism built-in that continuously smoothes and renews the active surface avoiding the heavy build-up of paint layers much like an ablative paint. The fast dry formula allows the boat to be painted and launched in the same day. Fiberglass Bottomkote® NT provides clean stable colors for effective season-long protection. Fiberglass Bottomkote® NT is recommended for use on the underwater areas of fiberglass, wood, and properly primed metal (except aluminum) boat hulls. It 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.
