Velox Plus Antifouling Paint

Marlin Yacht Paints

Part Number: 03-VG0-25

  • Description

    Velox Plus is an antifouling coating system developed to protect propellers, stern drives, shafts, outdrives, struts, jet pumps, and other metallic parts immersed in the water. Velox Plus works because of its excellent adhesion to the metal below the waterline. A unique feature of Velox Plus is that it is not degraded by galvanic currents that are typically responsible for paint detachment. Using Velox Plus will keep your propeller clean, thus increasing fuel economy and boosting vessel performance. Approximately 60% cost savings compared to "non-stick" or "release" coatings.

    Unlike current "release" coatings on the market, Velox Plus is repairable, no need to start over each time bare metals are exposed. Due to Velox Plus single part primer and no catalyst, there is absolutely no rush allowing you to take your time giving yourself a quality application. No maximum time between coats or before launching, allowing you to have a flexible schedule for when you paint. There is no waste either, the remaining Velox Plus can be used during the next haul out, saving you money. Can be used on any size boat, from small yachts to large commercial vessels.

    Velox Plus can be applied with a brush or sprayed on. DO NOT APPLY ONTO OTHER ANTIFOULING PAINTS. Velox Plus can be applied over an existing Velox Plus base coat. Two or more coats of Velox Plus are needed. Two sizes available, 0.25 or 0.50-liter cans.

Prop Protection

If it works as good as you say I would up that to 5 stars, it was simple and easy to apply, follow the step by step, nothing to it, I was fortunate in that my bottom job contractor sanded the prop for me, I cleaned and painted.
