"More speed, less fuel." This is the slogan of Propspeed. Let's talk about it.
In front of the unpainted propeller, did you also think that the fairing was not finished? The propeller and other delicate parts are thoroughly cleaned, but antifouling is not necessarily applied. Since the second exit to sea after the fairing, did you also notice that your boat (already) sails more slowly? Propspeed is the solution to our doubts.
Propspeed, what is it
Propspeed is applied together with a good antifouling on the delicate surfaces of the boat hull, such as the propeller, rudder, shaft, etc. It is an ultra-slippery coating that allows the prevention of the growth of marine organisms. Long life and maximum efficiency, the Propspeed application guarantees more speed, less fuel… What more could you ask for? Go on, we haven't discussed everything yet.
Propspeed is not a substitute for good antifouling. Completely different, they complement each other. Antifouling is a paint, a chemical based on biocidal compounds, whose active ingredients repel the installation of shellfish, algae and others. Rather, Propspeed is a silicone coating that creates a difficult-to-bond surface. We will apply the traditional antifouling on the hull of the boat and Propspeed on delicate surfaces. Compared to other similar products, Propspeed differs due to its high adhesion capacity on the surface to be protected and its ultra-slippery coating. It is guaranteed between one and two years, depending on the degree of abrasion.
Cleaning the surface
In addition to protecting surfaces from marine organisms, Propspeed has a direct protective action against corrosion.
With a more efficient propeller, we gain speed and save fuel. Depending on the type of boat and navigation, you can get up to 10% savings.
No biocides, copper, tin ... just silicone. Nothing sticks with Propspeed because it slides, not because it is toxic.
Life on board
Good equipment also means less vibration and noise. Good navigation!
The benefits of Propspeed don't end here. Also, keep in mind:
Although the cost of applying Propspeed is slightly higher than that of a conventional antifouling, you will quickly recover it, also saving on engine breakdowns, caused by vibrations and temperature changes due to a dirty propeller. A dirty propeller can reduce its performance by more than half.
Propspeed is naturally "self cleaning". It is enough to turn the propeller so that the few impurities fall. If some persist, feel free to wipe it under water or immediately after rinsing.
Finally, Propspeed is electrically insulating. Zinc anodes, therefore, deteriorate less quickly.
En Privilege YachtWe have embraced it and noticed a real difference between traditional erodible antifouling painted propellers and Propspeed painted propellers. If you go several weeks without sailing, it makes even more sense: your propellers will always be clean and you will avoid any unforeseen events, such as taking the boat out just to clean the propellers. We have tested it for you and you will certainly corroborate it. With Propspeed, it takes 12-24 hours to dry, depending on ambient conditions. So don't wait any longer to ask us for a quote.
