Barnacles, oysters, mussels, seaweed, and other marine life like to find a home on almost anything on or around the waterline.
Underwater lights are just as susceptible to marine growth as other parts of your boat. In fact, the combination of light and heat generated by the device makes the local environmental conditions very favourable for marine growth.
Conventional antifouling paint and many of the foul-release systems that have been fashioned to prevent marine growth on hulls and running gear are unsuitable on underwater lights as they prevent light getting through, so we have formulated a solution to this problem.
Lightspeed is the first transparent foul release system, designed specifically for underwater lights.
Applying lightspeed prevents marine growth attaching to the surface and the easy (damage-free) removal of any spurious barnacles or algae.
You might ask, won’t coating my light lenses make the light shine through them dimmer? Lightspeed actually improves the luminosity of the light by decreasing the scatter and increasing the organization of emitted light.
What effect will Lightspeed have on the clarity of my lights?
Lightspeed actually improves the luminosity of the light by decreasing the scatter and increasing the organization of emitted light - making your lights shine brighter.
How long will Lightspeed last on my boat?
We expect a minimum of one year in most conditions
Is Lightspeed environmentally friendly?
Yes. Lightspeed contains no copper, tin or any other toxic substances harmful to marine life.
