At ProStrip Sandblasting, we care about the environment and all natural life. This is why we take specific precautions when it comes to potential toxic influences on marine life.
When it comes to soft paints, scrubbing the hull while it’s in the water releases its biocides into the water.
We take extra measures to reduce this environmental impact on marine life by having the vessels hauled out onto land and washed to clean the organic growth, before proceeding with the antifouling.
We also thoroughly inspect and remove unwanted contaminants from other parts of your boat, especially the parts where the growth of marine organisms are most prominent under water.
If necessary, your boat hull will be sandblasted, using on of our marine blasting processes, in preparation for the antifouling treatment. After the antifouling, your vessel will be ready for use.
Despite heavy restrictions in the US and Europe, there is currently no ban in place for certain antifoulings which affects Australian waters. In maintaining Australia’s environmental standards, we only utilise antifouling paints approved by Australia’s legal authorities and sold in Australia.
