FastBlades Antifouling for propellers, designed by propeller makers. Especially during this period of “forced hiatus,” you have been able to use your boat very little. You will have realized how a good antifouling paint makes all the difference and prevents your hull from being covered in fouling.

Everyone focuses, precisely, on the fairings and appendages, but down there is also the propeller of your engine. A very delicate part that needs careful treatment, lest it be irreparably damaged by biofouling.

FastBlades: antifouling for propellers

This is why you should not rely on “gun” products but on specific paints designed for propellers. A good example can be found at Milan Yachting Week – The Digital Boat Show, our permanent digital boat show. It is FastBlades antifouling and you can find it in the booth of Ewol, a well-known manufacturer of high-tech propellers.

As you analyze the product, you’ll quickly understand how the expertise of propeller makers is crucial to fine-tuning an effective antifouling: FastBlades was tested a full three years on sailor Andrea Mura’s Open 50 Vento di Sardegna before it was launched on the market.

The secret of “biomimicry”

Its secret is encapsulated in one adjective: “biomimetic.” What does it mean? Simple: the varnish simulates the nonstick properties of living organisms, making sure that fouling cannot adhere.

Very easy to apply with a brush, it has no biocides and was created specifically for marine propellers, propeller shafts and other submerged metal parts.

It doesn’t matter what your propeller looks like: stainless steel, bronze, aluminum, composite, fixed, collapsible, steerable. FastBlades is always good. Also for painting shaft lines, propeller stands and Sail-Drive stern feet.
