Material Solutions is a family-owned Irish company with more than 87 years of experience in supply of materials to the print, signage and wrapping industry in Ireland.

At Southampton show, Material Solutions is partnering with Mactac to showcase MacGlide™ Eco-Friendly Fouling Release Film, a replacement for anti-fouling paint.

MacGlide™ film is the result of several years of research and development. 5 years of tests on sailboats and motorboats in all European waters have shown how effectively the film prevents fouling. The material is self-cleaning – most of the fouling may fall off by itself when boats regularly reach speeds of 7-8 knots for more than an hour.
