Get trained and be ready for the future!
Anti-fouling paint has been used for around 100 years, but major changes are on the way. New legislation means that shipyards are having to invest in upgraded facilities such as sewage retention ponds. Access to previously popular anti-fouling paints is going to become limited as many existing biocides are phased out. There is also rising demand from boat owners seeking more environmentally responsible products.

150 000 tons of biocides are used across Europe each year, every square metre of applied paint contains around 15g of biocide – capable of contaminating 150 000m³ of water.

“We got a professional training from the MacGlide team at our location. Great job!”
“One of our customers, passionate about new technologies, read an article on this solution published in Motorboat magazine. He contacted me and wanted to install the MacGlide anti-fouling film on his new boat Beneteau Trawler 35. We asked Mactac’s nautic partner for some application training, following which the boat was in the water just one week later. I admit to being a little skeptical about MacGlide properties. I interviewed my client twice during the season: he is delighted with the product and confirms that the hull is perfectly clean!”

What is the alternative to boat paints?
MacGlide™ self-adhesive film is not only a non toxic alternative to anti-fouling paints for boats hull protection, it also offers more flexibility in the planning of maintenance work : it can indeed be applied indoors and outdoors, during all the dry season, as long as the ambient temperature is above 10°C. Mactac views environmental responsibility as an integral part of good corporate citizenship and an essential consideration in the products we manufacture, the processes we employ and the research and development activities we carry out.
