Underwater coatings manufacturer, Propspeed, has introduced a new foul-release coating designed specifically for transducers.

Designed by industry engineers and designated by Airmar as a certified transducer coating, Foulfree releases marine growth, reducing the maintenance needed to keep transducers clean and streamlining water flow.

“Foulfree is an exciting new coating specifically made to enhance the performance of transducers,” said Chris Baird, chief executive of Propspeed. “Bringing together our revolutionary product design and working with the experts in transducer functionality from Airmar, we are able to offer boaters around the world a new solution to an age-old problem and improve sonar performance for anglers and cruisers alike.”

Safe for marine environment

Fouling on the face of transducers can reduce their sensitivity, bottom-echo returns and positive fish targets. Transducers also perform best with minimal turbulence over their surface during operation. Foulfree is a specialised foul-release coating that is biocide-free and does not poison marine growth. Once cured, it forms a slippery surface over the transducer, preventing marine growth from attaching to its surface.

Foulfree joins Propspeed’s existing product line which includes an eponymous foul-release system for propellers and running gear and Lightspeed, a transparent foul-release coating specifically formulated for underwater lights.
