Epoxyden Ship Guard


High build self-eroding 99% pure cooper and cooper oxide


Epoxy 100% solids with a high concentration of pure copper 99% that produces at sea Cooper Oxide, has a high sliding coefficient for painting sea crafts with a high and low cruising speed. For painting in the lower part below the level of the sea water to prevent fouling (adherence and accumulation of sea crops, algae, oysters, etc.,) Contains a high concentration of pure copper powder that produces regularly over many years cooper oxide that prevents fouling. The Cooper Oxide toxins prevents tumor adherence to the bottom of the ship for  long-term durability, this erosion of the coat of 250 micron can provide a 10 year protection to the to the bottom of the vessel. Contains no tin.

Properties :

  • Environmentally friendly and contains no solvents and no tin compounds.
  • Very rich in copper and biocides and provides protection against fouling and different crops on the bottom of the vessel at high and low speeds cruise that slowness of the vessel.
  • Very strong adherence to primer Epoxyden Solcoat layers.
  • Produces in contact with sea water Cooper oxide which is a toxin that prevents the development of tumors at the bottom of the underwater level sea crafts (causing a slowdown in the speed of the vessels and waste of energy consuming to overcome unnecessary friction caused from the sticking of fouling on the bottom of the vessel).
  • Quick drying and multi-thickness, same day application has multiple layers thickness is desirable for prolonged protection. Recoat time short due to rapid drying.
  • Excellent adherence ability between layers.
  • Has the characteristics of self-grinding tiny 5 micron per year each time revealing a fresh new layer without fouling cumulative.
  • Resistant to heat and cold and extreme sea conditions salty sea water and fresh water.
  • Optimized friction in seawater cruise at slow and fast cruise, durable friction too rough ice and / or harbor walls.
  • Strong and is suitable for immersion in sea water and fresh water for many years and have characteristics of shocks resist any vessel gets.
  • Implementation by spray / roller. Not for brushing.
  • Dries quickly. You can apply 4-5 layers of 60 microns each one at a resistance of 10 years or more.

  • Storage room temperature 15°C to 25°C.
  • Over Spray: An effect which occurs in the spraying of paints application. A type of “dust” is created by dry gases  of the air, which causing the paint particles to fall dry on the surface (hereafter the “effect”). The impact of this “effect” becomes stronger due to over pressure and heat, (most sprayers have a lever to control the   pressure) To avoid the negative impact 0f the “effect”, the pressure of the spraying should be lowered to the necessary minimum!. Another possibility is to increase the amount of the thinner in the mixture which would cause the paint particles to fall wetter on the surface.

An additional recommended possibility, to avoid this “effect”, is to add a retarder to the mixture which increases the duration period of the painting application , avoiding the paint to  dry up, and enabling it to reach the surface wetter, Thus a better painted smooth  layer is formed.

  • Pot Life : The working time which is possible to paint a mixture of two components, A+B (or more) without spoiling the qualities of the paint or disqualifying the paint as “out of use”.
  • Spray: It is possible to spray with a sprayer that has a container holding the paint that sprays it with air pressure.
  • Airless: a device with a piston which compresses the air for spraying paints. The pressure might be high (over 100atm.) Don’t aim it at anyone
  • Surface preparations: the level of cleanness is determined by international standards. Surface preparations, including cleansing sand blasting, is important & critical factor in achieving an optimal result for painting adhesion on a certain surface. These standards are equally compared to the standards of the Swiss SA, the German-Din the U.S SSPC SP For each standard in any level there are indicators, for sale, in order to make visual comparison between the cleansing of the surface and the indicator.
