Do I still require Antifoul?

Posted · Add Comment

Yes, we recommend that Antifouling protection should be applied to your vessel’s hull and also running gear. Our Advanced Ultrasonic Antifouling system will drastically improve the longevity of your existing antifoul coating. It will also drastically increase the time frame between haul outs for re antifouling.

The Advanced Ultrasonic Antifouling system will, unlike other coatings, provide enhanced protection for shafts, props and other running gear from growth. This protection won’t however be as effective as the hull due to the nature of the running gears connection to the hull via isolating bearings, hinges and other fittings which dampen the resonance of the Ultrasonic waves. Generally correct Transducer Positioning can enhance the performance and protection to these devices. is also currently in prototype testing stages of a specialized upgrade to our Ultrasonic Antifouling system that will provide additional protection to stern, leg drives, propshafts, props and rudders. Contact us for more information on this and we expect retail sales to commence mid 2011.
