FLAG Performance Extra Antifouling is a Copper based antifouling, semi-hard to enable use on craft up to 40 knots but still able to refresh its surface with some mild erosion. Proven performance for all types fouling in all waters. This product is self-priming when topping up existing similar copper based antifoulings; otherwise FLAG Antifouling Primer or FLAG Multi-Purpose Metallic Primer is required. Also suitable for long distance cruisers or racers because of the semi-hard nature of the paint.
What is a semi-hard Antifoul?
A semi hard antifoul is the perfect choice for many vessels, Unlike a 'hard' antifoul Flag Performance Extra will still perform if the boat is left unused on it's mooring for a couple of weeks at a time, it is not solely reliant on water friction to wash the growth from the hull. Having mild erosion properties also reduces the 'build-up' of antifoul caused by the annual application of antifoul reducing the frequency of having to strip the hull.
It is hard enough to cope with the odd mid season scrub as well as mud berthing.
