TotalBoat AlumiPaint AF Aluminum Antifouling Paint
TotalBoat AlumiPaint AF is a copper-free antifouling paint that combines a powerful organic biocide to ward off barnacles & zebra mussels, plus zinc to combat slime for full-season protection on pontoons & aluminum hulls. This unique copolymer ablative wears away over time, continuously exposing fresh biocide for maximum protection.
Formulated especially for use on pontoon boats, it provides superior coverage, durability & performance. Apply 1-2 coats per season over previously painted surfaces in good condition, or over properly primed aluminum, steel or iron. It's also ideal for outdrives & running gear & won't cause galvanic corrosion.
Available in Quarts and Gallons in Black & Blue.
Buy a Gallon and get a free roller & metal tray kit, paint suit with hood & 2 wooden stir sticks. Buy a Quart and get 2 stir sticks.

APPLICATION NOTE - PRIMING
Proper preparation and priming of bare aluminum is critical for paint performance and to prevent corrosion. Unprotected aluminum corrodes rapidly in salt or brackish waters. Even freshwater salinity can pose problems. We recommend priming with TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Barrier Coat Primer, as directed.
Primer: TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Barrier Coat (Aluminum); For metals other than aluminum, prime with TotalBoat TotalProtect Epoxy Barrier Coat Primer, as directed.
Cleanup: TotalBoat Special Brushing Thinner 100 or TotalBoat Dewaxer & Surface Prep
Coverage: 500 sq. ft. per gallon (125 sq. ft. per quart)
Hi Can I put TotalBoat AlumiPaint AF Aluminum Antifouling paint this over Interlux Primer "Primocon" ??Thanks Greg
Yes. Sand with 80 grit and clean prior to applying paint.
Will be using your product on a Alum hull boat in fresh water. What is the difference between Alumpaint AF and Krypton?
Hello. Alumipaint AF is formulated for better adhesion to aluminum and galvanized metals.

Is a primer recommended for use on a new unpainted pontoon Boat (aluminum)? ... which primer product?How much would adequately cover the bottom of 2 pontoons (24'x25")?
Use TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Barrier Coat Primer first on unpainted aluminum. A gallon will cover about 400 sq ft per coat.

I need a decent aluminum antifouling paint for a old 16' aluminum Lund that's in the water all summer. It's just used as a knock about. Your product sounds like just the answer. But when I read that you suggested a barrier coat be applied... I thought to myself you have to be kidding me. That's not going to happen... I've done that to two larger fiberglass hulls I own and it's a beast of a job under ideal circumstances. Anyway what do you suggest as an happy medium to achieve a decent bond, but not the ideal epoxy coat prepped bond. it's bare aluminum now. Light sand, and maybe Totalboat Dewaxer/Surface prep...Please advise.Thanks, Jim Albani, Essex MA
Jim, If you are down to bare aluminum, a light sand and clean with the Dewaxer/Surface prep and a coat or two of the Alumipaint will work well.

I'll see when i pull boat out of water in fall.
Well it went on well, but can't tell how it performed until I pull boat in fall to see how it performed.

Used 1 gallon for recoat this year on a 22 Ft pontoon. just the right amount.
Sea Isle City.
This product came very thick. I had to thin it to apply.
This did not seem to stick as it should. They probably should have sent me a can of Trilux 33 instead.
I've been using this product for three years now, and I haven't had any issues whatsoever. My pontoon sits in brackish water in Mississippi and comes out barnacle free at the end of every season. I also wouldn't buy from anyone else because Jamestown Distributors goes the extra mile by including a paint tray, roller, stir stick, and even a painter suit with each order. Awesome!
It's only been a month , but so far so good , no growth. easy to apply .
Yes i believe i will buy it again
Love how well the application went on a alum hull boat. Now will see how it holds up in fresh water.
Was able to apply two coats on my 20' harris pontoon boat, first time using this so I will have to wait to see how it performs
BEST DEAL on the MARKET today
Ive owned my 1963 36 foot aluminum Roamer since 1972. Ive run the gamut of painting and even sandblasting the old crud off a dozen times. The new TotalBoat Aluminum AF went on right over the top of the Interlux Trilux II without a hitch. The expensive stuff barely lasts a season (6 months on a river off of Lake Mich. in Wisconsin). The TB went all last year and after a power wash at haulout this fall looked ABSOLUTELY as fresh as the day it went on! even at the scum line. Only 4-5 zebra mussels on unpainted transducer surfaces. Not even ONE spec of white corrosion. Repairs to failure spots were always the norm with other products. I was impressed. So much in fact that I think Jamestown should send me a free gallon to offset the costs of the other 40 years worth of expensive paints. LOL. I am gonna try other TotalBoat products from now on. Anything to comp against KIWI deck paint or Interlux Perfections? ws

Very good product
24 foot Aluminum pontoon boat about 20 years old...I painted this over another more expensive brand that I have been using for years. Probably did not follow all instructions...regarding primers, super sanding, etc., that might have been suggested. One coat in February 2016 and put in water that month. Took out in Jan., 2017. Lease amount of barnacles ever. Lightly pressure washed off the slimy layer. Ready to paint again. Fixin to order some more. Very good product.

I liked the product and I would buy it again.
Good product, the pontoons are still clean even though most other boats are having buildup of lake residue.
