Pilot QD Primer is a single pack, fast drying alkyd based primer with zinc phosphate as an active corrosion preventing pigment. It is for use above the waterline on steel or aluminium structures in moderate non-aggressive environments.
Vinyguard Silvergrey is a quick drying, modified vinyl primer, recommended as a tie coat or as a sealer for an antifouling system. It is very water resistant and is excellent above and below the waterline as part of a single pack paint system.

Thanks very much for all your help and information in relation to our boat anti fouling. It was almost four years since it last came out, but I’m pleased to report, CU-PRO kept the boat in good order. I have used it again this year and I am fully confident, it will again protect my boat for another couple of years. - Mr Duffy - Berkshire

Recently used SML to order paint for my dutch barge. All the staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about products. They even managed to get a package sent out to me next day when I had come up short on thinners at the end of a long day spraying. I will definitely order paints from here in future. - Christopher French
These guys are exceptional when it comes to customer service. Every time I have spoken to them on the phone they have always gone the extra mile to ensure that I got the help that I needed. They are always more than happy to spend time explaining things to me. I am always left wishing that more companies would be run with the same amount of care as SML Marine Paints. Really appreciate your help guys. Many thanks. - Georgia Stanley-Smith - Google Review

We are very impressed with the CU-PRO anti fouling. Just dried out the yacht after 14 months continuous immersion and the anti fouling had repelled growth very well, delighted with the anti fouling’s performance and will be re-coating with CU-PRO before re launch in spring next year. - Ian Binnie - Argyll
Thank you so much for clear and excellent advise. It is so rare to receive such excellent customer service. - Mr Donaghy

Three years ago you supplied CU-PRO Antifouling (3 year coverage), well the yacht was lifted out this week after nearly 3 years in. WOW could not believe how good the bottom was after a quick power wash - one happy happy customer with the super antifouling quality. - Mr McLeman - Dumfries & Galloway
I was delighted with your service and am in the process of placing another order i paint boats for a living haven’t had the pleasure of using your product but found it easy to use. - Brian Wholey - Lancashire
I used your SHIELD Surface Tolerant Primer and am hugely impressed with the results - this is by far the best result I've had out of many different paints I've tried for this task! The performance is all the more remarkable since the keels sink into highly abrasive harbour mud every low tide, which scours most coatings off.
- Mark Hartswood - Scottish Borders
CU-PRO antifouling is the best we ever used, mine has been on 2-years. Boat comes out occasionally for a blast and put back and antifouling is still perfect. Lost count of how many people I have recommended this product to. - K Jarvis - Fishing Boats Echo 5
Thank you very much for a superb product. I used Cupro for the second year at June 2019. On 15th May 2020 - after lock-down, I returned to the boat to find a heavy curtain of weed growing in a "slime" of mud on the hull. I brushed off the mud - the weed went with it, and you could believe the boat had been freshly anti-fouled that day. Excellent - a superb product. - Rod Edmunds - Hayling Island
Thank you for the excellent service and advice I have received From yourselves. I have placed 3 orders recently and have received every one exactly when I was supposed to. Each item has been brilliantly packed - I will certainly be recommending you to all the other boat owners I know. - Paul Andrews - West Sussex
Helpful, professional and know their products. - John Richards
Just a quick note to say how pleased I am with your products. I have just completed painting my boat and I am thrilled with the result. Excellent product and service – cheers - Adrian Mickleson - East Molesey
