What makes Propshield so special?
Propshield uses lanolin
derivatives combined with a
special combination of corrosion inhibitors and other non toxic
together provide protection from corrosion and prevent hard
growth on all types of stern gear.
Since boats have had propellers, mariners
have been trying to find ways of stopping barnacles sticking to them
without very much success. We have manufactured this new affordable product that
significantly reduces/stops the adhesion of these creatures and
reduces/stops the effects of electrolysis and oxidisation as well. The reason the barnacles
cant grow on your propellers is that Propshield is so slippery that
they are unable to attach to the metal (or painted) surface; when the
vessel moves through the water any barnacles that have managed to
adhere themselves are swept away. The product cannot be
dissolved in water and even when the surface film degenerates over time
the metal retains it within its pores, and so remains active.
As mentioned this product also helps to eliminate or at least
reduce the effects of electrolysis so it stops your propellers
dissolving into the water when your shore power is connected. If your
propellers are green at the end of the season this is a sure sign that
the copper is leaching out of the bronze through galvanic action. This
weakens the metal and blades can sometimes break off and penetrate the
hull. At best the blade will loose efficiency and your fuel bills will
increase as your vessel's top speed falls.

Product, Benefits and
Propshield Antifouling Grease uses lanolin derivatives which are a
renewable resource. Propshield is not based on oil like many other products are.
Lanolin is a naturally occurring substance which is a by product of wool
production. It is not harmful to the sheep before or during its
production or to humans during its application.
