The International Watersportscommunity Bodensee (IWGB www.iwgb.net) has listed VeroMetal® Marine M300 as environmental friendly antifouling.
in Yacht Issue 9 /2010
VeroMetal® Marine SS3 is based on Stainless Steel particles and can be applicated similar to the Marine M300 product. It can be sprayed on or it can be rollered.
VeroMetal® Marine SS3 has been applicated onto Racing Sailboats as well as on Wetbikes. The smooth surface reduces friction and leads to higher speed and easier handling of the boat
cleaning the hull is much easier. You can treat the hull with a standard
high pressure water pistol. The Stainless Steel surface is very hard and
will protect the hull. The Diver services do not remove any of the coating
when cleaning the hull of growth, it will protect the hull and add strength.
Very abrasion resistive, very long wear factor. No need for re-coating
of hull for many years (if ever). Pressure washing is the only maintenance
required and again no removal of coating will be faced no matter the cutting
strength. Most pressure wash systems for boats are set at relatively low
pressures as the fear is with paint the washer will cut through it. With
VeroMetal® Marine SS3 is used at the moment exclusively by professionals but will be available soon for the public markets.
