Crystal Prop is a self-cleaning, biocide-free, non-exfoliating, long-lasting paint. Designed specifically for use on Propellers, Shafts, Struts, SailDrives, Outdrives, and other metallic underwater gear. When applied, it creates a durable hard, slick surface that marine growth does not adhere to. Crystal Prop does not need a primer, thanks to its superior adhesion to metal. This makes it extremely durable and will hold up to propeller cavitation. The Crystal Prop kit consists of two bottles containing paint and hardener, which are mixed with a 1:1 ratio. This is a single-coat application that can be applied by brush or spray.

Self Cleaning

Crystal Prop creates an extremely smooth propeller surface resulting in decreased water resistance. This improves the overall performance of the vessel, resulting in higher hull speed, lower fuel consumption and resistance to the onset of cavitation. Marine growth will not attach to the paint. A treated propeller cleans itself as soon as it starts rotating, unlike traditional antifouling paints Crystal Prop will not lose its effectiveness with more use.

DURABLE BARRIER

It creates an excellent barrier against corrosion, by forming a strong protective film over the metal blocking it against galvanic currents. This will extend the life of sacrificial anodes. Crystal Prop is an ecologically friendly product; free of harmful toxins, biocides and metals.

Easy Application

Looking for a hassle-free solution to protect your boat from fouling? Look no further than Crystal Prop. Unlike other antifouling coatings, Crystal Prop is incredibly easy to apply. You can use a brush or spray gun to apply a single layer, and that's it! The result is a durable protective coating that keeps your boat looking and performing its best. Plus, with a dry-to-the-touch time of just 2 hours and a launch-ready time of 48 hours, you'll be back on the water in no time.

Crystal Prop

As advertised, it's easy to use and apply. Can't help the 48 hour drying time so plan accordingly. I'll do another review in 2 months

Crystal Prop

Pros - no primer needed, hard slick finish, sprayable without dilution, does not have to be removed to re-coat, thin coat uses less product, fast dry to dust free/ touch.
Cons - too early to tell how well it works, requires 48 hours before launch, no guide on quantity to use (creates wasted material), expensive.
I like it!
