About Finsulate

Conventional antifouling paints, without exception, try to prevent the on-growth of mussels, algae and other organisms through toxic substances they contain. Aside from chemical aspects and their environmental implications, such methods are not even efficient: The paints usually do not last long. And their antifouling effect is weakened whenever the ship lies still. While waters get intentionally polluted by the toxic substances leaking into it.

Finsulate® has proven that efficient antifouling can be done
much easier and cleaner!

SEA URCHIN PRINCIPLE

HOW IT WORKS

FOULING

A clean ship without antifouling protection is exposed to on-growth of biological organisms. Within a short time, the hull can become covered by mussels, algae and other types of organisms. That’s why ships used to be provided with a so called antifouling paint containing toxic substances. Because of the strong environmental pollution resulting from that method, however, legislation  gets increasingly restrictive.

HULL NSULATION

In creative nature, stings are often used as defense mechanism. One good example are sea urchins which stay free from on-growth of organisms and don’t get eaten by other animals. Finsulate® is a very special foil, developed to protect the hull of a ship. And it was developed by that very same sea urchin principle: Tiny stings on its surface prevent the attachment of algae, mussels or other organisms. The hull therewith becomes “insulated”. The only chance for organisms to attach is on the outer end of those tiny stings. But from there they can easily be brushed off. And the ship can stay in the water while the removal happens.

LONG-TERM PROTECTION

Thanks to its physical properties, Finsulate® provides efficient antifouling protection for a long time. This protection also works no matter if the ship is moving or lying still. And its durability of at least 5 years means that you’ll definitely save on the yearly maintenance costs. All that while actively protecting the environment!

ORDER PROCESS

Getting Finsulate Antifouling for your ship

ORDER PROCESS

Finsulate is a product which is delivered including its application. This is why the ordering process is a bit different compared to toxic antifouling paints.

First, you contact us – either directly or through one of our sales partners. We’ll then ask you a few questions about your ship: Which type, what sailing properties and the dimensions. That information will allow us to estimate the costs and to plan the works.

PREPARATIONS

With Finsulate you’ll have an antifouling solution for at least 5 years. To ensure that your sailing pleasure really will last that long, we require some special preparations for the application surface: If the hull surface contains antifouling paint, that paint first has to be removed. After that, one layer of Epoxy primer must be applied. Once this is done, our team can start with the Finsulate application works.

On ship hulls where no antifouling paints have been done yet, Finsulate can be applied directly on the gelcoat or on the aluminum hull, for instance.

ANTIFOULING APPLICATION

Finsulate is applied by experienced professionals. This could be a Finsulate team or one of our contract partners. A growing number of shipyard and ship maintenance companies are trained by us and offers that service. During the order process we’ll discuss your options.

READY FOR SAILING AGAIN!

Once the Finsulate application is done, you can put your ship back into the water right afterwards. But you could also choose to leave it on land for some time since Finsulate won’t be afflicted by dryness. Which means that not only could you leave your ship in the water for at least 5 years. You could also bring it to a winter storage each year during that time.
