Prop Coat is a 2-part, extremely slick coating of extremely hard quartz nano-particles that fill the microscopic pores in the metal's surface to form an ultra-smooth surface which deters the attachment of barnacles and mussels as well as most marine grasses to non-ferrous underwater metals.
As a result it prevents propeller fouling, increases speed and fuel economy, and saves you money.
It is free from biocides and heavy metals.

Ionyx Prop Coat has the same fouling release properties as their Bottom Coat, but contains extra additives to provide metals with superior protection from corrosion, as well as fuel-wasting pitting damage caused by cavitaion.

Unlike paints and other coatings which simply adhere to a surface, Ionyx Prop Coat actually forms strong chemical bonds with the metal substrate and integrates itself into the metal's structure - making for incredible durability and longevity.

Ionyx Prop Coat chemically bonds to its metal substrate, forming a water-repelling, hard, poreless surface that fouling organisms just can't stick to.
It can be applied to non-ferrous propellers, shafts, struts, strainers, stabilizers, etc.

Prop Coat is a two-part system — Prop Coat Base + Catalyst are mixed in a 1:1 ratio. Be sure to buy each component.

Application —
• Can be applied at temperatures between 45 °F and 105°F
• Apply with brush, 1/4" nap or dense/smooth foam roller, or spray
• Very low viscosity - thinner than water
• Theoretical coverage is 300 - 400 sq ft per mixed gallon; two coats required
• Air dries - no special facilities needed for curing; can be applied outdoors
• Dries to a clear coating
• Dried film is very thin - 1.2 - 1.8 mils
• Clean with acetone before it sets

Dry times (@ 77°F and 50% relative humidity)
• Mixed pot life is 3 hours if covered
• Dry to touch: 2-3 hours
• Safe to handle: 3-5 hours
• Time to launch: 48 hours
• Full cure: 7 days

Extraordinary Durability —
• Unparalleled adhesion and resistance to high RPM abrasion
• Protection lasts for years
• Nanoparticle quartz structure bonds to the propeller - becomes part of the propeller's surface
• Extreme resistance to wear - even at very high RPM
• Extreme resistance to corrosion
• Protects the propeller from cavitation damage
• Prevents attachment of bio-fouling organisms

Saves Money —
• Less drag - demonstrated 5%-10% reduction in fuel consumption
• More speed at lower RPM
• Long lasting
• Forms a hard, but flexible, non-toxic surface
• Abrasion resistance beyond granite
• Low maintenance - self-cleaning - no need for diver maintenance
• Reduces need for haul-outs
• One product is effective on multiple types of surfaces
• Extends the service life of whatever it is applied to
• Lightens the load — half the weight of other coatings

Green and Clean —
• Dries to a non-toxic, non-leaching surface.
• Free of pesticides or biocides
• Free of heavy metals
• Solvent based, but low VOC - less than 100gm/liter
• Exceeds the most stringent air-quality control standards in the US, and meets California Prop 65 carcinogen-free standards.
• Non-Carcinogenic
• Non-Leaching
• Safe for marine life and the ecosystem
• 100% compliant with current State & Federal EPA mandates

Ionyx Coatings are available in two formulations. Fisheries sells the non-hazmat, Low VOC, methyl acetate formulations of these products. Ionyx recommends the use of OSHA approved respiratory and eyewear protection when applying their products. Wear gloves and ensure an adequate supply of fresh air.
