The Evil Genius of propeller deterioration: corrosion. Corrosion causes roughness that quickly degrades performance and propeller efficiency. Its Evil Sidekick, Fouling also creates roughness and promotes more corrosion as bio-organisms attach to metal, increase cavitation, and cause pitting.
Polishing and grinding can't prevent corrosion and fouling, nor subsequent propulsion efficiency loss. You just can't polish and grind on a daily basis, and pulling a vessel out of water seasonally still leaves propeller surfaces at the mercy of salt fog, ambient moisture and other environmental factors.
WHAT CAN STOP THE EVILS OF CORROSION? IONYX PROP COAT
It's an unparalleled nano-quartz formula that helps you avoid losses in prop efficiency altogether. This breakthrough prop coating not only protect propellers against cavitation erosion, galvanic corrosion and fouling but also lowers hydrodynamic drag on the propeller surfaces. Ionyx Prop Coat protects propellers and gear from losing their “newly polished” texture, without adding weight that might impede their functioning.
Ionyx Prop Coat cuts down on operational costs, too…
Decrease frequency of repair and replacement of propellers and running gear
Decrease time spent cleaning propellers and running gear
Decrease fuel spend and stress to engine and moving parts
Spend less: fewer coats, short cure time, more coverage
Specially textured to lower hydrodynamic drag for better fuel economy
…with advanced technologies for higher levels of adhesion, hardness and flexibility
Wipe down or turn over propeller to maintain
Self-leveling, thin and lightweight so it doesn’t add weight or roughness
