Yacht Shield H2O is a water-based, ablative antifouling designed with the environment in mind. Low-Density Copper Technology provides true multiseason protection against all types of fouling while lowering the paint's environmental impact. Low-density copper content is equivalent to 40% traditional cuprous oxide. Yacht Shield H2O uses innovative technology to replace the harsh solvents found in most bottom paints with water, providing an easier application and clean up, with low VOC's and no heavy solvent smell. Yacht Shield H2O's surface wears away with use, exposing fresh biocides while eliminating the need for sanding and paint film build up. Yacht Shield H2O holds up to trailering, beaching, and launching. Its unique formula allows unlimited dry time to launch, so you can paint in the fall or winter.
