E Paint announced that the U.S. Navy
has authorized E Paint SN-1 antifouling paint for use on small boats and craft. Use of E Paint's SN-1 Bottom Coating in Ocean Gray color was specified to meet the Navy's goal to improve overall ship visual camouflage. E Paint SN-1 is the only antifouling coating approved by the Navy for use on small boats as an alternative to silicone fouling release coatings. E Paint products
are copper-free replacements for TBT-based antifoulants. E Paint SN-1 is formulated with the booster biocide SEA-NINE® 211 (Rohm and Haas Company), a material that received the first Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award in the category for Designing Safer Chemical Products. E Paint SN-1 is EPA approved for commercial use only as an antifouling paint for boat bottoms.
