Prior to using Foulfree™, Propspeed’s foul-release transducer coating, the Atlantic Shark Institute faced the challenge of biofouling, which impacted the performance of tags deployed on sharks.
“From our perspective, Foulfree is a must-have for anyone who conducts research and uses tags to transmit data”
Jon F. Dodd
Executive Director, Atlantic Shark Institue
In the commercial fishing industry where vessel performance is one of, if not the, most important factors, Propspeed helps to keep their vessels running smoothly and reliably in the most challenging conditions, with increased speed and efficiency, and reduced maintenance.
"Last season, I had Propspeed's products applied on my wheel, rudder, underwater lights and transducer. Fat Tuna looks as fresh hauling out as the day she went in for the season!"

7 transducers and an underwater light were submerged in the Whau River, an estuarial arm of the Waitemata Harbour in Auckland, New Zealand, for 14 months.
"This is why every boat owner should protect their transducer with Foulfree."
