An innovative and non-polluting alternative, compared to current fouling treatments. Thanks to it repelling properties (patent pending), the adhesive film MacGlide protects your hull from colonization by marine organisms without spreading biocides or pesticides which contaminate the water. MacGlide preserves marine life and indirectly, human health.
In a new boat, the hull has to be degreased using isopropyl alcohol (MACcleaner).
In case of a boat already coated with antifouling paints, all old coats have to be removes in order to apply MacGlide directly on the gel coat.
The MacGlide adhesive coating is applied in transverse strips without leaving overlaps zones.
The adhesive strips are then sealed using Macglide Primer and MacGlide Top Coat.
The product is not erodible in water and contains no biocide. It is also not hazardous to the professional who applies it.
A simple sponge and a soft brush allow any stains to be removed.
The fouling comes off by itself when the boat sails often and at a speed of 7-8 knots.
MacGlide has been tested throughout Europe, and in all types of boats.
Up to five years compared to six to eight months for existing, toxic antifouling agents on the market.
Providing a fuel saving estimated to be 5 to 6%.
The film is waterproof. This gives unmatched below the waterline protection of a gel coat. A gelcoat covered with MacGlide will contain less humidity (water) than a gelcoat covered with an anti fouling paint (therefore, less risk of osmosis).
