ePaint ZO, the Original Copper-free Antifouling Paint! Only ePaints include patented photoactive technology for the best antifouling performance. This technology is not found in other "ePaint-like" imitation products and do not perform nearly as well.

Product Description:ePaint ZO is a general purpose antifouling paint recommended for all recreational boats and commercial vessels in both fresh and salt water. ZO offers extremely effective antifouling protection and is the best alternative to traditional tin and copper-based bottom paints. ZO features the environmentally approved active ingredient Zinc Omadine to prevent grass, slime, algae, and bacteria and ePaint's patented photoactive technology to deter the settling and attachment of hard shell-type organisms. As ZO is copper-free, it is safe for aluminum boats, motor brackets, trim tabs, running gear and may be used on boats that are frequently hauled and launched. ZO is easy to apply and is compatible over most popular antifouling paints and barrier coats.

Fast slick bottom, good paint with some quirks

by

Absolutely no hard fouling after 6 months in southern new England other than where the keel touched bottom in a gentle grounding that wore the paint off. Lots of soft growth after sitting on a mooring for a month in August, but it wiped right off with a rag leaving a smooth surface. Epaint gives a nice hard and fast finish, definitely best for boats with regular use as with all ablatives. Easily picked up half a knot of boat speed. But make sure to put lots of extra coats at the waterline and I'd avoid painting and letting the boat sit on the hard as the paint seems to physically deteriorate in the sun and lose adhesion when out of the water for extended periods .
<br>
<br>All in all it gives a great fast bottom and I am pleased however it is pricey and has some quirks relative to an old school copper ablative. The lack of toxic ingredients like irgarol or econea makes it pleasant to apply and sand as needed without irritation to the skin and eyes.
