both new and conventional – at acceptable commercial
LIFE-SPAN ANTIFOULING :
FOUL NOT has proven resistant to all hard & soft fouling
organisms.(algae, grasses,hydroids, mussels, worms, barnacles,
etc. – even the persistent zebra mussel). Thus giving
a longer life span.
FOUL NOT is the ultimate
choice for ship & boat owners looking out for better
performance at reasonable costs to create:
FOUL NOT has a unique co-biocidal combination, which exhibits
superior performance against hard & soft foulings
ensuring a cleaner hull and stern.
FOUL NOT’s hard wearing rate ensures performance
for longer periods with cleaner hulls resulting in better
longetivity. It has survived more than 72 months in current
warm water test studies.
FOUL NOT ends the need for the expensive and unpleasant
annual chore of cleaning and repainting a boat’s
hull at regular intervals, to remove any build up of sea
The negative impact on marine
life due to the leaching of TBT based paints into the
estuaries and waterways and pressure from the United Nations
International Marine Organisation (the IMO) to ban these
paints, caused companies to seek alternatives.
Alternatives using organo
copper and zinc based paints have proven less efficacious
and the most likely market leader will be paints based
upon new fungicidal pesticides or co-biocides that repel
fouling organisms without heavy leaching into waters.
We believe, based on our
several years of scientific studies, FOUL NOT
is an antifoulant paint that will safely repel fouling
organisms and which is even efficacious beyond six years
and its encapsulated active toxicant ingredient(s) will
not leach out into the water, categorizing it as a reduced
risk pesticide (RRP).
In addition, our ability,
to manufacture FOUL NOT commercially at affordable competitive
prices, undoubtedly enables both users of large ocean
going freighters, naval ships, tankers, recreational boats,
commercial fishing vessels, sporting boats, lobster and
crab culture cages, fish nets, buoys, bulkheads, bridges
and docks, etc. to also use FOUL NOT.
PRODUCT FEATURES & USES :::::
FOUL NOT is a Tin free, premium antifouling paint. It
is a unique and highly advanced polymer antifouling bottom
paint that gives exceptionally long lasting performance.
Comparative studies shows that FOUL NOT delivers almost
double the effectiveness than any of the conventional
TBT or other organo-tin based products. Its unique co-biocidal
combinations exhibits superior performance against all
types of hard and soft fouling.
FOUL NOT is used as an antifouling paint on all kinds
of ships, freighters and cruise vessels. Its unique performance
mechanism prevents permanent attachment of most foulings
and is highly effective against both hard fouling (Barnacles,
Mussels, Snails, Balanidae, Mollusks, etc.) and soft fouling
(Worms, Hydroids, Mites, Slugs, Algae, Weeds, Slime, Tunicates,
Sea Fauna and Flora). It helps reduce the drag on underwater
hulls and thereby increases speed. Excellent dynamic and
static fouling protection. Ideal for use where serious
fouling conditions are experienced. Recommended for use
where extended dry -docking is required with other paints.
Tin-free. For use on steel, fiberglass,or wood hulls over
a suitable primer.
>> TBT FREE – complies with IMO AFS Convention.
>> Convertibility – easy to convert from tin-containing
>> Protection – from foulings for periods
of 72 months.
>> Low Maintainence – easy to re-coat at M
& R drydocking.
>> Affordable Prices – competitively priced,
economical alternative to other antifoulings.
>> Performance – effective against both hard
& soft foulings.
