We are delighted to have won the prestigious Eco Friendly Business category of the Asian Marine & Boating Awards 2011, held in conjunction with the China (Shanghai) International Boat Show. The award was presented to Nigel MacFarlane (Coppercoat™ representative for Hong Kong) by Yang Xin Fa (Secretary General of the Chinese Boatbuilding Association) at a gala dinner at the Four Seasons Hotel in Shanghai.
It is very rare for any anti-foul to receive an award for being environmentally friendly, so this is a major coup for us and welcome recognition that Coppercoat™ is an environmentally sensible choice.
By commonly remaining effective for between 10 to 20 years, anti-fouling a boat once with low-leaching Coppercoat™ is clearly far more responsible than re-anti-fouling every year with a standard eroding anti-foul paint. And you don’t have 10 to 20 years worth of painting apparel such as rollers, brushes, tins and plastic paints trays to bury in a landfill site either!
