When are we going to get an acrylic anti fouling paint?

Surely somebody out there has something in the works. Any chemists on this forum?

In fact, I don't know!

I use an acrylic antifouling paint made by the same company and sold under the name "Neptal SE" in a chain of chandleries. I am satisfied with it: there are no more mussels and barnacles on the hull, only some weeds.

But I don't know if "Neptal SE" is the same as "Allegro Extra".

Pettit copper based anti-fouling paint is still your best bet for marine applications. Disclaimer...I do not have any financial interests in Pettit. (I'm a Biochemist and an Engineer.) Mauritz
