Finsulate Premium Antifouling is designed as the goto product that services the majority of all antifouling needs whether it be pleasure craft, working vessels, or stationary submerged objects.
Finsulate Specialty Antifouling is designed for boats with uncommon requirements, such as planing hulls that travel in excess of 30 knots, or freshwater applications with extreme soft growth environments.
Finsulate is the worlds Premier NO KIll Antifouling that was developed in The Netherlands by Dutch Materials Scientist Rik Breur, after observing the natural biological defense methods employed by sea urchins to keep aquatic animal life and plant life from attaching to their exoskeleton and inhibiting their ability to move and grow.
It is the only truly environmentally friendly antifouling in the world! Our biologically inspired flocked surface solution doesn’t contain any toxic ingredients, instead it consists of only nylon fiber, polyester film and a two-component water based adhesive. To put it plainly that means our antifouling wraps use zero harmful chemicals, zero biocides, zero toxins, zero heavy metals, and zero poisons to prevent fouling.
Finsulate does not need to kill aquatic life to work, like the majority of the world's other antifouling products. Instead, it prevents most aquatic life from attaching to the hull of your vessel by insulating it in a protective covering that makes it difficult for the organism to attach itself, allowing for the live aquatic organisms to continue their journey until they find a suitable location where they can flourish and grow as nature intended.
Unlike other solutions that may sound similiar, there are no speed or movement requirements for our antifouling wraps to work. In addition Finsulate is not harmed or degraded should you decide to store your boat out of the water for weeks or months or years. All Finsulate antifouling wraps come with a minimum 5 year guarantee, so you dont have to worry about hauling out and adding more poisons to the bottom of your boat every year.
The ecological and environmental benefits of using Finsulate are clear, but the cost benefits are also noteworthy. Our antifouling wraps are guaranteed to be in service for a minimum of 5 years with no diminished efficacy. Compare that to even the highest quality traditional ablative antifouling paints which have a 1 year guarantee and are known to have diminishing effectiveness after 6 months. This means that you will not be forced to incur the costs of additional haul outs, additional ablative paint, and the labor to prep and apply it each year, which translates directly into savings that you can use for other projects on your boat. If you do choose to haul out each year, Finsulate is not degraded while sitting on the hard and needs no special treatments before returning to the water again saving you time and money in the boat yard.
Additionally while your boat remains in the water Finsulate protects against the colonization and fouling of your hull. Yes you may find a few barnacles or tube worms or other 'hard growth' here and there but the majority of the larvae will not be able to form a bond to the Finsulate antifouling wrap. Those that do can be easily and quickly removed with your fingers, a scrub brush, a scrub pad, or a plastic spatula. This reduction of fouling is especially noticeable on boats that might not be absolutely diligent in hauling out each year for maintenance. The use of softer materials in removing the aquatic organisms from the antifouling wrap instead of using a hard metal scraper against your hull also helps to protect your hull from accidental gouging and pitting caused by the scraping that can lead to water ingress which in turn can cause blistering, delamination, warping, and fatigue.
Finally due to the cleaner hull with reduced fouling your engines will not need to work as hard when you use them to motor from one location to another. This equates to direct savings at the fuel pump. Several of our motor vessel test cases report fuel savings in the 5% - 7% range due to using Finsulate.
