Antifouling with Macglide® Antifouling Wrap Film

Thanks to its non-stick properties, MacGlide antifouling protects the hull from the colonization of marine micro-organisms without spreading toxic substances into the ocean.

MacGlide consists of a protective adhesive film for below the waterline, coated with silicone paint . In other words, it is an “adhesive underwater paint”, a technological leap with multiple benefits.

The Problem

Each year in Europe, nearly 150,000 tonnes of antifouling paint containing biocides are used in order to prevent aquatic organisms from attaching themselves to hulls. These paints release toxic substances into the ocean, which have a very harmful impact on the marine environment.

The Solution

Eclipse YM & Mactac are coming together to develop an innovative and non-polluting alternative, compared to current fouling treatments. Thanks to it repelling properties (patent pending), the MacGlide adhesive film protects your hull from colonisation by marine organisms without spreading biocides and/or pesticides which contaminate the water. Thus, MacGlide preserves marine life and indirectly, human health.
