Antifouling films - MacGlide Series

MACmark - MacGlide Foil

Thanks to its non-stick properties, MacGlide antifouling protects the hull from the colonization of marine micro-organisms without spreading toxic substances into the ocean.

Key features

  • *Sail responsively - preserving marine life and indirectly, human health Long term efficiency
  • * biocide-free - Environmentally friendly replacing antifouling paint containing biocides
  • *Alternative to toxic paint / coatings

Specially designed for

  • * Boat hull protection below the waterline

MacGlide consists of a protective adhesive film for below the waterline, coated with silicone paint . In other words, it is an “adhesive underwater paint”, a technological leap with multiple benefits.

Technical Characteristics

Ecological : preserves the marine environment and human health Unmatched ease of maintenance : A simple sponge or a soft brush allow any biofilms to be removed before the hull is colonized. Self-cleaning : The fouling comes off by itself when the boat sails often and with a speed of more than 5 knots. Effective in all seas : The product has low sensitivity to the biological variables of the marine environment. Superior durability : Up to five years. Compared to six to eight months for toxic anti-fouling agents currently on the market. Drag lowering : It provides a fuel savings estimated to be 5 to 6%. Reduction of the risk of osmosis : The MacGlide film complex is impermeable to water Financial savings on maintenance costs, spread over the five years of the effectiveness of the antifouling coating.
