Welcome to Antifoul Gold Coast. We supply all the top brands of antifouling paint to protect your vessel from unwanted growth that will slow your vessel down & cost you in extra fuel usage. This growth will eventually destroy your hull if left unchecked.
We specialize in supplying the correct primer systems from bare substrates like gelcoat, steel, aluminum or timber, all the way trough to your antifoul layers.
A typical paint system for optimal protection from osmosis in fibreglass or even protecting aluminium and steel underwater will consist of a couple layers of a two pack epoxy paint, known as the osmotic barrier, followed by a single pack tie coat then two or 3 coats of antifouling paint. The timing of these layers being applied to achieve a chemical bond is the key to success. Of course shortcuts can be taken, however the above system will give your vessel optimal protection.
We stock every major brand on the shelves of our physical store located within the The Boat Works at Coomera on the Gold Coast. We have a dedicated trade centre full of paints, safety gear, abrasives, scrapers and even paint strippers designed to remove old unwanted layers of paint. Being located in the busiest boat yard in Australia has it’s advantages, as we buy pallets and pallets of antifoul paint and primers each and every month. This gives us exceptional buying power and we can pass these saving on the our customers.
You will shop right along side some of the biggest antifoul applicators in Australia, so it is a fantastic setting.
Drop in store and we will be more than happy to discuss your situation, and help you buy the right paint for your boat. We do not apply the paints, we just sell them. If you are looking for an applicator we will be happy to put you in touch with one of the many trades we supply paint to each and every day.
We can ship paint, however paints are a class 3 dangerous goods and freight costs can be high. If you want your paint shipped shoot us an email with the physical delivery address so we can contact our carrier for a quote. Best to use a business address that is manned during the day as carriers can charge re-delivery fees if you are not there to sign for it.
