Antifouling - Gold Coast
Runaway Bay. Southport.
Providing a thorough and professional, yet cost effective boat antifouling service to ensure your vessel performs to its maximum capacity.
We apply 2 coats - 'Jotun's SeaVictor 40', and on aluminium substrates 'Jotun's SeaSafe Ultra'.
Both are hydrolysing antifouling coatings based on ion exchange technology. This binder dissolves in seawater at a rate permitting the continuous exposure of fresh antifouling, providing good fouling protection achieved through self-polishing (ablative) characteristics reducing hull deterioration, friction and speed loss.
Our antifoul prices are "all inclusive" of haul out / return, hardstand 2-3 days, water blast, environmental levy, hull & running gear preparation (further water blasting, scraping, wet sanding, spot priming of any bare patches), application 2 coats of antifouling coatings, materials and GST.
Anodes as reqired are additional and we will price seperatly.
Our general recommendation for re-antifouling, anodes checked/replaced and a general check of eveything below waterline is every 12-18 months, and aluminium hull vessels every 12 months.
Propspeed is a catalyzed etch primer + silicone based top coat antifouling system designed for use on metal underwater running gear.
Propspeed has very low friction with water; its finish is similar to that of glass.
Benefits of having Propspeed applied are:
- Increased engine revs (across all ranges)
- increased fuel economy
- increased boat speed
Making Prospeep a viable upgrade for your boat's performance.
Our process - strip old propspeed or antifoul back to bare metal, clean with MEK solvent, apply 2 coats of Propspeed 2 pack yellow/gold etching primer followed by Propspeed clear coat in the manufactures specified time frame to achieve a strong chemical bond.
Pro-Care Marine first time antifoul process
For boats which have never been antifouled before - a special treatment is required.
Our process - cleaning, setting antifoul line, 80 grit orbital sanding, MEK solvent cleaning, application of 2 pack epoxy primer (Jotun's Jotamastic 90), application of 2 pack epoxy vinyl primer tie coat (Jotun's Safeguard Universal), application of 2 coats of antifoul (Jotun's SeaVictor 40 and SeaSafe Ultra), performed in the manufactures specified time frame of each other ensuring a strong chemical bond.
