AY&B Antifouling

AY&B No.5 Antifouling

Altex No.5 Antifouling is recommended:

  • Where multi-season effective fouling protection is needed
  • Where regulations ban or restrict the use of organotin compounds
  • On yachts, tenders, dinghies, trailer yachts and power boats

Altex No.5 Antifouling is:

  • Compatible over other copper based anti-foulings, where recommended preparation is achieved
  • Not suitable for use on aluminium craft, outboard motors, sail drives or stern legs
  • Suitable and recommended for use on primed GRP, gelcoat, steel, timber and ferro-cement craft

Note: Because ablative antifoulings work by slowly wearing away to expose fresh biocides, the amount of product applied has a direct bearing on system life.


Contains No Organotin Compounds

  • Contains high levels of cuprous oxide
  • Self polishing/ablative mechanism inhibits the attachment of fouling organisms
  • Suitable for high speed craft - however, ablation rate will increase when subjected to sustained high speed

Pettit Hydrocoat® Antifouling

Hydrocoat® is an advanced technology, water-based, ablative antifouling which offers exceptional multi-season protection against most types of fouling.

Hydrocoat’s innovative technology replaces the harsh solvents found in most bottom paints with water, resulting in an easier application and clean up, with no heavy solvent smell.

Hydrocoat’s ablative surface wears away with use, exposing fresh biocides while eliminating paint build up and the need for sanding. The low-odour formula is so environmentally friendly, it exceeds even the most stringent air pollution regulations.

Hydrocoat® withstands frequent trailering, beaching, and launching. Its unique formula allows unlimited dry time to launch, so you can paint in the autumn or winter.

Hydrocoat® has been used on all new Sea-Ray boats for over 12 years.


Approval:              NZ HSNO – Reg: HSR000041
