Self-Eroding Antifouling Paints
What is self eroding antifouling?
Eroding antifoulings, as their name suggests, wear away leaving eventually little to no antifouling on your hull. In theory, whilst there is antifouling on your hull it will give a degree of protection, as they still contain and release biocides.
Eroding antifoulings are great for those who prefer a low maintenance option, as generally speaking there is far less accumulation of old paint on the hull after each season. They are most suited to cruising yachts - faster boats would possibly find that an eroding antifoul wouldn't last a season.
