Propeller Paint Applications
We offer three types of coatings for propellers and running gear. Coatings can be applied to running gear to help slow down and prevent excessive build up of marine fouling communities such as barnacles. These coatings work in two basic ways; a “foul release” or “slick coat” is, as it sounds, a slick surface that is more difficult for the fouling creatures to adhere to in the first place, so they are more easily dislodged from the slick coating. The other mechanism by which coatings can work is “anti-fouling” properties, meaning that they have a chemical or toxic component that interferes with the growth and life cycles of the fouling organisms.
