Fouling of hull surfaces and apendages such as props and rudders can lead to lower speeds, higher fuel consumption, damaged surfaces and generally a poor appearance. Traditional antifoul paints and protective coatings use Control Depletion Polymer's (CDP's), which are toxic and extremely hazardous to the local environment.
Now there's a cost effective, environmentally friendly alternative, exclusively available in the UK through Grapefruit Graphics. Offering both MacGlide and Propspeed products, we provide a complete solution for protecting the hull and appendages under the waterline. Our products also render's the need for hoisting vessels on an annual basis, eliminating unnecessary costs and time consuming processes.
