    • Instructions

    PropSpeed is the original propeller and running gear coating system, specially formulated to prevent marine growth from bonding to metal surfaces below the waterline. This makes the PropSpeed System one of the most effective and longest lasting propeller and running gear coating systems available on the market today.


    • PropSpeed is a long-lasting, ultra-smooth, integrated foul release system that stays firmly adhered to props and running gear
      • Dramatically reduces the ability for fouling to occur
      • Designed to increase vessel speed and fuel efficiency
    • Environmentally friendly so it doesn't harm marine life
      • Contains no tin, copper, biocides, or anti-slime additives
    • PropSpeed system is comprised of a two-component etching primer and an ultra slick top coat
      • Etching primer bonds to metal substrate and provides an ultra-smooth surface
      • Top coat is an ultra-slick surface that marine growth can't grip
    • Exceptionally strong chemical and physical bond between the metal substrate, primer, and top coat ensures the PropSpeed coating will stay on your running gear
    • 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 can be applied to any metal part below the waterline, including propellers, shafts, struts, rudders, trim tabs and through-hull fittings
    • Safe for use on aluminum components
    • Clear coat can also be applied directly to plastic bow-thruster propellers and underwater light lenses
    • Safe to haul out boat for maintenance or winter storage but be sure not to pressure wash coated gear

    Note: The running gear temperature must be a minimum of 59 degrees and continue to be at least 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 curing time prior to launch

    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

    A minimum of eight hours drying time is required after final coat

    • This is based on the running gear temperature of 59 degrees F or 15 degrees C
    • If the running gear temperature is below 59 degrees F or 15 degrees C, 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
    • Temperature windows are for running gear, NOT ambient temperature
