The application is easy and clean; two experienced wrappers finished the job in a day. In displacement mode (95% of the time) I enjoy the same performance compared to traditional anti-fouling. In planing mode it’s a few % lower. There has been no fouling after the season and no need for re-application, saving me significant on maintenance cost while protecting our children’s planet.

We applied Thorn-D about a year and a half ago to my Duffy Classic 21 in S. Florida, amazingly it has kept the bottom un-fouled. Thorn-D is the ideal product.

Just pulled the Duffy out of the water. Easily pressure washed off all residue except in the joints where there was just a small strip area that was fouled where the foils met. I am happy things are moving forward for your team. Keep in touch.

I have used Finsulate for almost 4 years now and I am impressed with the results. I have hade my strike 26 done with the Finsulate® Easy Clean Wrap as in California we are used to clean boats monthly. My diver has complimented me on the long term ease of cleaning. He keeps using the soft Scotch Brite pads and no deterioration of the Finsulate product is seen. I will easily manage the promised 5 year lifetime!

Dear Rik,
It was pleasure to meet you & Robert after a brief interval and discuss the status of Micanti Antifouling film applied on our Safety standby vessels. We chose this product for Antifouling application considering the very low vessel movement during Safety standby duties and long period idling at offshore locations.

To summarize our experience till now with Micanti product:
Halul 18 has now been sailing with Micanti Antifouling since November 2013 (2 years): Vessel is used as a safety/standby vessel and as such has little activity; Performance of Micanti Antifouling is still appropriate with minimum complaints, Speed of Halul 18 with Micanti Antifouling after 2 years is comparatively higher than what we normally see with regular antifouling;

The first location where we could notice the effects of Micanti Antifouling was around the sea chests and unrestricted flow of sea water into sea chest contrary to normal antifouling which wears out quickly. Micanti Antifouling has been intact even after 2 years;

Halul 12 has now been using Micanti Antifouling for 6 months. She is also in use as a safety/standby vessel. So far the performance is satisfactory.

We are anxiously waiting to dry dock the vessel to evaluate condition of applied antifouling film. We are glad to co-operate with you in developing such environment friendly product for Shipping industry.

Unlimited Idle Periods

Finsulate is easy to clean after long idle periods. Cleaning does not affect the performance of Finsulate.
