Durepox is a hugely popular and well known coating amongst yacht racers, it can be found on many race boats, including America’s Cup and Volvo yachts.
Durepox is used on the underwater hull, top sides, decks and rigging as it delivers outstanding adhesion, water resistance, weight savings and full colour options in one product system.
Independent testing has shown that Durepox reduces drag compared to other finishes.
Used by ETNZ and many other syndicates in America’s Cup Bermuda 2017.
Durepox can be applied over correctly prepared:
- Steel, Galvanised Iron and Aluminium
- Wood and MDF Board Composites
- Digital print
- GRP (fibreglass) and Carbon Fibre

Why use Durepox?
Durepox gives you lighter and more durable results than your average marine paint, proving to be a very attractive drawcard. It’s used as a topcoat on racing boats as it has excellent water barrier properties and exceptional weather stability. On a practical level, painters value its fast dry properties and sandability after three hours with no shrink back.
Why is Durepox more durable?
It is an epoxy urethane, which means it combines high-tensile strength and compatibility with flexible materials needed in marine environments. It also has great adhesion to carbon fibre, fibreglass and wood, which can be applied without sanding between coats.
What makes it so light?
Durepox can be used as a filler, primer and topcoat all in one saving you litres and hence kilograms worth of paint layers – making your boat lighter and therefore faster in the water.
