ZF Marine N American Distributor for Velox Plus

Tuesday, April 26, 2011
ZF Marine announced that they are now the North American distributor for Velox Plus antifouling paint.
 
Well known by mariners worldwide, Velox Plus is an antifouling paint specifically designed to be used on underwater metal.   Previously unavailable in North America, Italian based Marlin yacht paints have appointed ZF Marine LLC as the North American distributor for this product.
 
Underwater marine growth is a common problem for vessel owners. While hull coatings have been designed to limit growth on the hull itself, the underwater fittings and shaftline have been exposed to marine growth, increasing drag, increasing fuel burn and potentially reducing engine life due to increased loading by a fouled shaftline. 
 
Other products in the market have been designed to protect propellers from fouling, but Velox Plus is designed to be used on propellers, shafts, struts, rudders, trim tabs, and through hull fittings.  Velox Plus dries to a hard finish, with excellent adhesion properties, and is designed to not promote galvanic corrosion.  
 
Velox Plus is available through ZF Marine LLC’s propeller distributors in the US and Canada.
