Foulfreeā„¢

Transducer Defense. Foul-Release.


Fouling on the face of transducers can reduce their sensitivity, decreasing bottom-echo returns and fish targets. Keep your transducer performing at its peak with Foulfreeā„¢.

The revolutionary foul-release coating that protects transducers from marine growth, certified by Airmar.

When can my boat be launched after the Foulfree application?

Foulfree requires a minimum of 8 hours to dry before launching. In cold conditions, 40-60°F / 5-13°C, we recommend waiting at least 24 hours before launching.

If the vessel is hauled for maintenance and a new coat of Foulfree is not applied, is there a limit as to how long it can stay dry?

Foulfree will not dry out, and performance will not be adversely effected when the boat is on the hard.

What is the difference between Propspeed, Lightspeed and Foulfree?

The critical differences in the three different application systems are (1) the way the surfaces are prepared for coating purposes, and most importantly, (2) the cleaning agents found within each kit perform a specific function pertaining to the surface to be coated. Using the correct product and following the correct preparation and application instructions provided is critical to maximize performance across our range of products.
 
Propspeed
- For protecting any metal surfaces.
- The Propspeed system has everything required to protect underwater metals in the harshest of marine environments.

Lightspeed
- For protecting underwater light lenses and housings.
- Lightspeed has been tested to be underwater light safe and will not cloud of fog lenses.

Foulfree
- For protecting transducers; measuring equipment below the waterline.
- Foulfree has been tested and is AIRMAR certified to result in no loss of transducer performance.

We have included all of the required components in each one of our product kits to make it easy for your business to charge out one billable item. E.g. 1 x Foulfree kit has everything you need to complete the job. Simple, easy, and valuable. 

Is Foulfree environmentally friendly?

Yes. Foulfree is a specialized foul-release coating that does not poison marine growth or release any toxins into the marine environment.

How much Foulfree do I need?

One 15ml kit will coat 1ft.

After applying Foulfree, is there a maximum amount of time that the vessel can stay out of the water?

Our coatings are not effected by extended periods of time out of the water. Foulfree can be applied and then remain out of the water without causing any problems. The coating is UV sensitive when exposed for a long period of time, so we suggest that customers keep the coated surfaces out of direct sunlight. Many customers cover up the coating to also protect it from damage, as it is a soft coating.

Why do I need Foulfree?

Fouling on the face of transducers can reduce their sensitivity, decreasing bottom-echo returns and fish targets and reducing the detail on the sonar image you receive. Foulfree forms a slick surface marine growth can’t grab onto, keeping your transducer surface clean and clear. 

How long will Foulfree last?

Foulfree lasts a minimum of 12 months, with an even longer service life in cooler climates.
