Propwell good for the environment and your boat
Locally-made prop coating system designed to be environmentally safe.
Launched at the Sydney International Boat Show, Propwell is a locally-developed prop coating system designed to be both easy to apply and environmentally-safe.
“It is rare to find a product you believe could change an industry not to mention developed in the heart of Melbourne. Propwell prop coating system is a product we at Sam Allen Wholesale are proud to call Australian,” said David Allen, national sales manager at Sam Allen Wholesale.
“It is 100% eco-friendly and designed to keep your running gear and Australia’s pristine waters clean at the same time.”
Propwell uses a unique foul-release silicone coating that creates a surface on which marine growth is unable to bond, thereby preventing growth on metal surfaces below the waterline. At the same time, the coating system is an eco-safe product that does not contain any toxic substances that may be harmful to the marine environment.
Preventing marine growth below the waterline has been shown to deliver measurable performance improvements. For instance, the manufacturers claim that using Propwell can improve vessel performance by three knots and increase fuel efficiency by up to 10%, extending the service life of the vessel.
The coating is also designed to be easy to apply, turning a complicated two-man process into a simple one-man operation with an efficient three-step application process. In addition to propellers, it is also suitable for use on rudders, shafts, bow thrusters, trim tabs, Zeus drives, pod drives and more.
Propwell is available in three kit sizes for small, medium and large maintenance jobs.
