This summer we decided to test our products in particularly difficult conditions. We set them up in Piran for two months. You can see in the pictures below that our product passed the test with 4 AF coatings. Next report will be updated on the end off october 2022.
While ultrasonic antifouling systems work great with many boats, they won’t work with wooden or cored hulls. This is because the foam or wood dampens the ultrasonic wavelength making it ineffective at vibrating the exterior hull. Steel and solid FRP hulls offer the best transfer of ultrasonic waves, amplifying them like a soundboard and allowing each transducer to protect a large area.
While these systems are unique and offer great protection against fouling, they are best utilized in conjunction with bottom paint, soft or hard. Most manufacturers, however, suggest using them in combination with a hard antifouling paint.
