AF Series foul release agent are copper and tin free, and do not work by polymer crumbling. As such they do not release heavy metals or plastics into the ocean or shipyard environment. They have a long service life and are robust to knocks and scrapes.
The AF series coating create a perpetually slippery surface that prevents growth from adhering. Vessel motion and water flow pulls growth from the hull.
These coating have no application restrictions, and can be applied months before the vessel is dropped in the water. They can similarly be kept dry, such as on a hull in dry storage racks, and resume protection once in the water again.

The AF series coating also have great colour flexibility. They can be either a clear top coat and tinted tie-coat system, that gives an appealing automotive paintwork look, or be simply tinted topcoats, giving classical flat antifoul look. These coatings can be pigmented with mica fleck pigments for a unique stylish look, or with solid colour pigment to match or compliment the hull paintwork.

Sealants are particularly effective at re-sealing automotive paint post-polishing. Polishing can rip a flat paint surface and expose it to environmental attack and degradation. Similarly UV weathering can cause chalking and fading. This degraded surface is often restored by sanding and polishing. Sealants are an easy and economical way of closing that ripped surface. Once sealed water and dirt is excluded from the paint surface, preventing further degradation.

Sealants also impart long lasting gloss and hydrophobicity. They are more durable than waxes and are paint shop compatible.

We have two variants for this application. AF-3 and AF-5.

AF-3 Ceramic Sealant is an easy to apply product with great gloss and durability. It is used worldwide by number of our clients as a pre-delivery paint protection product for new car sales. It is based on a polysilazane - polydimethylsiloxane resin system that is durable yet flexible. It has a service life of around 2 years. It is a one part moisture cure system. AF-3 is best used in urban application as it's easy-clean properties allow diesel soot and pollution streaking cleanup.

AF-5 is a epoxy-silane sealant. It has excellent adhesion and durability on clearcoats and GRP surfaces. It is very abrasion resistant and has a long service life. It is a 2K system (it uses a hardener) and is more demanding to apply than the AF-3, but has superior chemical resistance, UV stability and longevity than the AF-3. It is ideal for commercial and rural vehicles.
