Approved anti-fouling paints for echo sounder transducers

This is our list of approved anti-fouling paints for all types of echo sounder transducers. This is the currently valid list of anti-fouling paints.

Anti-fouling paint is a commercial product, and the manufacturers change their paints from time to time. 

Important

  • Do not paint the transducer with traditional hull plating paint. Use only the correct type of approved paint specified.
  • Do not use high-pressure water, sandblasting, metal tools or strong solvents to clean the transducer face.
  • Always refer to the manufacturer's documentation and data sheets for a complete procedure and for relevant safety information.
