BCF survey on use of AF paints

12 February 2016

The most comprehensive survey ever undertaken to study the DIY use of antifouling (AF) paints in the UK has shown that boat owners are taking the correct precautions and are well aware of the hazards involved when using these products.

The British Coatings Federation (BCF) Marine Coatings Group launched the survey in September, to acquire information and data to defend the DIY use of these products. There is a concern that authorities may decide to restrict the application and use of AF paints to professional applicators through the implementation of the latest EU regulations on biocides. Just fewer than 2500 owners took part.
