After working with the California Department of Pesticide Regulations for two years, Coppercoat USA received approval to sell Coppercoat antifouling epoxy in that state.

Coppercoat is a water-based, two-part epoxy and is non-toxic during the application and subsequent years of hull cleaning. Because Coppercoat is an epoxy it does not drop chemicals or minerals into the water, the company said.

Coppercoat USA managing member Jim Edwards said this is an important step for Coppercoat USA and the marine environment.
