    How much paint will I need for my boat?

    • Propclean Wipes
    • Propprep Wipes
    • Etching Primer
    • Etching Primer Hardener
    • Propspeed Clear Coat
    • Stir Stick
    • Instructions


    • Propspeed is the original propeller and running gear coating system, specially formulated to prevent marine growth from bonding to metal surfaces below the water line
    • Propspeed is a foul release coating system that provides more speed with less fuel
      • Not an anti-foul, so it doesn't harm marine life
    • The Propspeed system is made up of a two-component etching primer, which bonds to the metal substrate and a clear coat, which provides an ultra-smooth outer layer
    • Combined they provide an integrated foul release system that stays firmly adhered to props and running gear, dramatically reducing the ability for fouling to occur
    • This makes the Propspeed System one of the most effective and longest lasting propeller and running gear coating systems available on the market today
    • The top coat on the Propspeed system is an ultra-slick surface that marine growth can't grip
    • Gives props and running gear a long-lasting ultra-smooth surface, which prevents fouling and increases boat speed
    • Keeps props and running gear free of fouling, which makes them more efficient and decreases fuel consumption
    • Reduces corrosion and lowers maintenance costs
    • Propspeed's effectiveness does depend on movement of your boat - the more you use it, the better Propspeed performs
    • Propspeed sets itself apart from the competition with the exceptionally strong chemical and physical bond between the metal substrate, the primer and the top coat
      • this ensures that the Propspeed coating actually stays on your running gear
      • Ok to haul boat but be sure not to pressure wash coated gear
    • Propspeed can be applied to any metal part below the waterline, including propellers, shafts, struts, rudders, trim tabs and through hull fittings
    • You can also use the clear coat directly on plastic bow-thrusters and underwater lights
    • A minimum of eight hours drying time is required after the final coat
      • This is based on an average air temperature of 15 deg C, or 59 deg F
      • If the air temperature is colder than this, a minimum of 24 hour curing time is recommended
      • Temperature and time windows are critical for proper adhesion and protection
      • Be sure to watch video and read complete instructions prior to application
      • The temperature windows are for the running gear "NOT the ambient temperature"
    • The Application of Propspeed can be broken down into (5) separate stages:
      1. Metal surface preparation: Sanding the surface or using Propstrip
      2. Initial cleaning using Propclean
      3. Metal conditioning using Propprep
      4. Applying Metal etching primer
      5. Applying Clear coat top coat

    Note: The running gear temperature must be a minimum of 59 degrees and continue to be that temperature during the process of application. Once applied the minimum dry time is 8 hours at 59 degrees for temperatures below 59 you must allow 24 hours prior to launch
