With "protective coating" I mainly refere to epoxy or vinyl ester
two component curing material. The wording protective used in the meaning
protecting against water entrance comes from paint manufacturers who are
very interested in selling these high margin expensive products.
As there does not exist any fluid material which cures in normal temperature
and can prevent moisture entrance they are a waste of money. Further they
disturbe the normal moisture movements in the laminate which makes the damages
from an eventuel hydrolyse process worse.
Antifouling has nothing to do with such products. At the moment, in my opinion,
the most effective and globally permitted antifouling for yachting purposes is
Interlux Micron Extra.
