Following the success of Propspeed foul-release system for propellers and running gear, Oceanmax adapted its proprietary coating technology to maximise the long-term performance of underwater lights.
Like Propspeed, Lightspeed is an eco-friendly alternative to conventional anti-fouling, which has recently come under regulatory scrutiny due to its toxic biocide content.
Unlike current competitors, which are opaque and use toxic chemicals to kill marine growth, Lightspeed repels growth by creating a nontoxic, ‘super-slick’ transparent coating that prevents barnacles and algae from colonising on underwater surfaces in the first place.
Lightspeed will be distributed by West Marine and Land ‘N’ Sea in the United States, Burnsco in New
Zealand, and All Marine Spares and QEP Marine in Australia.
