Coppercoat Anti-Fouling Paint, from Coppercoat USA, was awarded the "Eco Friendly Marine Business" trophy at the 2011 Asian Marine and Boating Awards.

"Environmentally minded boaters have applauded Coppercoat for years; this is our first major award, but we don't expect it to be the last," Jim Edwards, managing member of Coppercoat USA, said in a statement.

"Since Coppercoat is effective for well over 10 years and never requires removal, antifouling a boat with extremely low-leaching Coppercoat is far more responsible than reapplying antifouling every few years," he added. "In addition to protecting your boat, that's 10 years worth of old paint, rollers, trays and tarps that don't go to landfills."
