When the barnacle larvae attaches to the paint, it grows its tendril foot into the paint, The ivermectin encapsulated in the paint kills the larvae. And also kill the algae. Tested all over the world.
You think the USA FEDS will approve this paint for use here?
Since everyone now seems to hate almost harmless copper except boat owners, they must approve something else that works, and this works better than copper.
Wonder how it will be priced.
Washington state should be pleased, you would think so, since they are banning all copper in paint.
