ePaint EP-2000 Antifouling Racing Bottom Paint

ePaint EP-2000 is a smooth finish, hard antifouling bottom paint, intended for racing sailboats and fast moving vessels. This coating is environmental friendly and is suitable for all hull types. It's designed as a hard bottom paint for fast moving vessels that normally operate over 30 knots, or for racing sailboats that are looking for a hard smooth bottom paint that can be burnished.

E Paint employs a novel mechanism to control the attachment of fouling organisms. When immersed in oxygenated water, E Paint photochemically generates minute levels of peroxides, making the surface inhospitable to the settling larvae of fouling organisms. Peroxides have been demonstrated to be effective antifouling agents. The peroxides do not persist in the environment because they quickly decompose back into oxygen and water by natural ions dissolved in the water.

EP-2000 is a high performance, hard, water-based antifouling paint that is recommended for use on all substrates exposed to marine biofouling. EP-2000 is not compatible with other existing antifouling coatings. All pervious antifouling paints must be removed before applying EP-2000. To protect fiberglass from water migration and gel-coat blistering, prime using EP Prime 2000. Metal surfaces must be primed with EP Prime 1000 and EP Prime 2000 prior to application of EP-2000. EP-2000 may be applied by spray, roller or brush.

EP-2000 uses an active biocide Zinc Omadine. Which is formulated with the patented E Paint approach to controlling biofouling that includes a booster biocide Zinc Omadine, offering an ecofriendley alternative to traditional antifouling coatings. EP2000 is recommended for use on racing sailboats, fast moving vessels and trailored vessels.

      Comments about ePaint EP-2000 Antifouling Racing Bottom Paint:

      In an effort to be environmentally friendly, I read reviews about this product which were favorable. So, I painted the keel slot on a sailboat and the bottom of a powerboat about a year ago. Sailboat has been in the water during this time the powerboat has not. Upon removing the sailboat from the water for inspection we found the keel slot totally encrusted with barnacles that the swing keel would only drop after breaking the barnacles first. Getting ready to put the power boat in the water we opened a new can paint to put a final coat of paint on the bottom. It was an extra can ordered at the same time as the original paint on the bottom of the powerboat. It was about a year old but unopened. We attempted to stir and remix the paint after opening but the paint has completely seperated. We attempted to recombine the paint but after two hours and stiring by hand AND an electric hand mixer, olny a small part of the solids would remix. After straining the large clumps of solids that would not remix AND cleaning up the mess made in our attempt to remix it we put a thin watery coat on part of the bottom. WHAT A MISTAKE! The paint caused the just repainted area to flake in large flakes. We will have to resand this area and repaint it. Don't waste you time with this product. It is more trouble than it is worth and it does not work as advertised.

          The application is very easy with a foam brush, does not run easily. Overload a vertical area it will run. I can see myself putting on a new coat each year as recommended. Now to see how it works as an antifouling bit works.
