Copper Shield SCX 45 is a good multi season ablative copolymer. With it’s copper content (46percent), in addition to the performance booster SCX (slime control extra) provides outstanding protection against slime, growth and weeds.

Perfect for sail and powerboats and can re-launch after extended haul outs while retaining original antifouling properties. Can be applied over most hard or multi season bottom paint.
