Wrapping Wiktoria in the new generation of the antifouling – Finsulate.
Sailing mainly on the Wadden Sea – the UNESCO World Heritage, means we feel responsible for the nature.
Thus we have been looking for environmental friendly antifouling. We came across a wrap – Finsulate, and we decided to try it.
It took one day to cover the underwater hull with Finsulate. Wiktoria was in the water the next day.
It will be interesting to see how Wiktoria sail with Finsulate.
100% evironmental friendly
Finsultate is the only truly environmental friendly antifouling in the world! Finsulate doesn’t contain any toxic ingredients. Finsulate consists of a nylon fiber, polyester film and a two-component water based adhesive.
Today, conventional antifoulings are trying to prevent marine growth by use of toxic ingredients in the paint. Always with the same effect: short period of performance and the vessel needs a certain speed and continuous movement.
Finsulate shows there is a simpler and safer solution, leaving paints behind!
Finsulate products are suitable for all circumstances worldwide, whether you are moored or sailing. That’s what we call: Antifouling Reinvented! Finsulate is a self-adhesive film and not a paint. The film or “wrap” is applied to the hull of the vessel.
Hello, now 2 years later could you tell me about your experience with finsulate? Degrees the speed? ….
Thanks for informations
We have had it for 2 years. It is terrible. Plants grow on it always and animals attach to the plants. 2 years of gardening and were done
I am sorry to hear this. Our experience with Finsulate is positive. We see/have small grow; however, it is extremely easy to clean. Our yacht is the entire year in the water, and only once a year out of the water for the cleaning. We sail in both the fresh and salt water.
For us it is important that the Finsulate is environmentally friendly.
We are still pleased with Finsulate. We have each year a small grow, but it is easy and fast to clean.
Of course, it has influence on the speed, as all antifouling.
