Interlux VC-17M Extra Antifouling Boat Bottom Paint

VC-17m is a thin film bottom paint for racing sailboats and powerboats that is formulated with Fluoro microadditive to reduce friction and drag. When applied the VC17m will immediately give a hard; super smooth; racing finish that would normally take days of tiresome sanding. VC17m is great for use on inflatables. VC 17m uses metallic copper to achieve complete protection against zebra mussels; teredo worms; weed; algae and slime fouling. This is especially helpful in freshwater or low fouling saltwater. The applied thickness of VC 17m is eight times thinner than traditional paint; which virtually eliminates film build-up. It’s quick drying for fast re-launch.
