Antifouling without biocides
For sailing yachts and motor boats
Traditional antifouling paint is highly toxic and has a short-term effect. Finsulate is different. Thanks to a unique foil with billions of hairs, water and boat work together to prevent fouling.

“I really enjoyed this innovative antifouling product this year
had no significant growth. Just some slime, which is easy to get rid of.
While in the unprotected areas a lot of mussels grew quickly. An additional proof of the strong antifouling properties! I am very happy that I chose your product, especially since I now do not have to do any maintenance in winter. "
HOW IT WORKS
Inspired by sea urchins
A clean ship is susceptible to biological growth without protection. Within a short time it grows full of mussels, algae, and other organisms. In the past, ships were therefore treated with toxic antifouling paint. Due to the heavy environmental pollution this causes, this is increasingly under pressure.
Isolate the hull
Spines are often used in nature as a defense mechanism. Consider, for example, echinoids that remain free of fouling and are not eaten. The Finsulate® protective film insulates the hull by using such spines. This makes the attachment of algae, mussels and other organisms virtually impossible. The hull is “insulated”, as it were. If fouling does occur, it can only attach to the tips of the spines and can then simply be wiped away in the water.
Due to its physical nature, Finsulate provides long-term protection, works while sailing and when the ship is stationary. With a service life of at least five years, annual maintenance costs are saved. And that without environmental damage!
