Eagle Speed HS High Strength II


Eagle Speed HS II is an acrylate polymer antifouling paint with fine and specialty chemicals of Zinc or Copper Pyrithione (Cu2-SiR3). Zinc or Copper Pyrithione and/or organic biocides may be added as "boosters". Its hydrolysis mechanism provides long lasting antifouling and incomparable hull performance with superior fouling protection. It also exhibits polishing control for optimal performance with a stable self-polishing mechanism. It is suitable on approved primers and tie coats on aluminum and carbon steel substrates. Compliant with IMO Antifouling System Convention AFS/CONF/26. Excellent static performance and recoat ability. High volume solids for a hydrolysis type antifouling. Pyrithione compounds are the so-called Silyl by Anglo-Saxon countries.

Eagle Speed HS II displays very good compatibility with various well known producers.

Eagle Speed HS II is classified as the latest generation of ASTRA development with Pyrithione.

Application must comply with the specific recommendations and provisions of the PhilaCoatings Technical Department. Any liability is limited to the quantity and value of the A/F provided, assuming prior approval in writing by Philadelphia Coatings LLC.

Surface Preparation

All surfaces should be clean, dry and free from contamination. A high pressure freshwater wash should be applied prior to the application of the coating. For other surface treatments, please consult with Philadelphia Coatings LLC.


Circa 24 months at 20°C, stored at dry, shaded and ventilated condition. The container/paint, must be kept sealed and away from heat and ignition.

Pack Size

Standard packing of 5,3 Gal. (20 Lit) pail. If other packing specifications are needed, please consult with Philadelphia Coatings LLC.

Limitation of liability

All information is given for guidance only and is subject to regional variation depending upon local climate and environmental condition. An excessive film thickness delays the final curing and creates sagging. Over coating interval will increase with the number of paint layers and the thickness of the paint film. For recommended paints at special circumstances, please consult with our Philadelphia Coatings LLC. Apply in good weather. The relative humidity must not exceed 80% temperature of the surface to be coated must be at least 3°C above the dew point. All data from the tests is obtained under lab conditions, so Philadelphia Coatings LLC won’t bear any liabilities from the condition whether the data could reflect the objective status of the actual application circumstance or not.
