Flag Cruising Anti Fouling Paint is a copper-based anti-fouling that is free from booster biocides.
Manufactured in the UK by FLAG, this is an economical, self-eroding anti-fouling that boasts excellent performance in a wide variety of UK conditions and many locations across Europe.
Proven to create less build up than many traditional anti-foulings, this product is self-priming when topping up existing anti-fouling paint.
It is suitable for general sailing and displacement craft with speeds up to around eight knots and also ideal for fresh water.
Before application, the surface should be stable, firm, dry and free of dust, sand, loose old paint, dirt, grease and oil.
Touch dry in two hours, depending on conditions. Over-coating can take place after six hours.
Theoretical spreading rate is 10 sq. metres per litre.

*The theoretical spreading rate has been calculated for the stated volume solids and dry film thickness. A practical spreading rate will depend on the actual dry film thickness, the nature of the substrate, and the relevant consumption factor. The physical constants are subject to normal manufacturing tolerances.
