Propeller & Z-Drive Antifouling

Due to their material, propellers and Z-drives require a special type of antifouling, which must be able to withstand high rotational speeds and abrasion caused by heavy water flow. High-quality propeller and Z-drive antifouling can be found here in our Antifouling Shop.  Learn more about Propeller & Z-Drive Antifouling...

How do I apply antifouling to a z-drive?

- Spray or paint? -

Antifouling for your Z-drive is available as a spray or paint. With the spray can, the antifouling is applied evenly and it is easier to get to hard-to-reach areas.
When painting, the antifouling paint is first applied with a spatula, then spread with a brush.
 

What type of antifouling?

There are also two different types antifouling for your propeller and drive: self-polishing antifouling and hard antifouling.
Self-polishing antifouling rubs off by itself when the propeller moves. Due to this unique action there is always a fresh biocide layer on the surface.
Hard antifouling, on the other hand, hardens after application and forms a binding agent structure containing the biocides.
After the biocides have been "used up", an empty binding agent structure remains.

What exactly to apply on my z-drive?

Find out more about the various propeller and Z-drive antifouling products. Choosing the right antifouling depends on the conditions in the area, so no antifouling paint is universally suitable for each propeller / drive.
The existing surface also plays a major role. When taking over a boat, for example, be sure to consider which antifouling was previously used.
