Velox Plus is an antifouling paint developed to protect propellers, stern drives, shafts, outdrives, struts, jet pumps and other metallic parts immersed in the water. 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. 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 Metal Primer must be applied to bare metal before Velox Plus can be applied. Only one coat of Velox Metal Primer is needed, while two or more coats of Velox Plus are needed. Velox Plus can be applied over an existing Velox Plus base coat. Two sizes available, 0.25 or 0.50 liter cans. Available in white or black.
Metal Primer by Marlin Yacht Paints must be applied prior to Velox Plus Paint.
These pictures show some propellers treated with Velox Plus after one year. The pictures were taken in temperate waters. Results may be different depending on type of waters, location and temperatures. Especially in tropical waters, or in extremely heavy fouling areas.
