How it Works
The seas and waterways contain a suspended microbiome of larvae and seed which will become marine growth.
To colonize and grow, these larvae require the correct conditions. Sunlight, salinity, water current, and temperature are all required to be at optimum levels.
If all the criteria are correct and there is a suitable stable surface to attach themselves to, the larvae will colonize that surface and start to develop into marine growth.
Ultraguard Antifouling uses pulses of ultrasonic sound at specific frequencies to induce a resonance response in the surface to be protected. This causes the surface to vibrate.
By causing the protected surface to vibrate slightly at the correct frequencies, Ultraguard creates a sub optimal environment, which, prevents the larvae from attaching to and colonizing the surface.
Keeping a ship’s hull free of marine growth in this manner drastically reduces drag on the hull. This reduces fuel consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and ultimately reduces the vessel’s operating costs.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does Ultraguard Master Series work?
Yes. The principles of ultrasonic antifouling are well established. Ultraguard has refined these and built them into a system suitable for the commercial marine market. Ultrasonic Antifouling Systems (UAS) work just as well as other modern forms of antifouling.
Is it environmentally friendly?
Yes. 100%. Ultraguard Master Series emits no pollutants into the marine eco system. Even our packaging is eco-friendly.
Does it have any negative impacts on marine mammals?
No. Ultraguard Antifouling conducts ongoing testing to ensure that the ultrasonic sound waves are not at a frequency or pressure that adversely affects whales and dolphins.
Can I install Ultraguard Master Series myself?
Yes. Many of our customers install the system themselves. We provide full instructions, including videos, to all customers.
Will ultrasonic antifouling work on my vessel?
Ultraguard Master Series will work on any solid metal or composite hull, pipe or component. It does not work on wooden hulls.
Do I still need to use antifouling paint?
You will still need to protect the hull with a suitable protective coating. Ultrasonic Antifouling doesn’t protect against metallic corrosion or GRP osmosis. We would always recommend a non-biocidal coating on environmental grounds. Ultraguard can extend the lifespan of underwater coatings by keeping them free from growth.
Does Ultraguard Master Series come with a warranty?
Yes. All Ultraguard products come with a two year warranty against defects or component failures.
Where is Ultraguard Master Series made?
Ultraguard Master Series is designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom to the highest standards.
Clean Ships, Clean Seas
Ultraguard is a high-quality ultrasonic antifouling system (UAS) that offers the commercial and recreational markets a more sustainable, ecologically-friendly, and effective solution to managing marine growth. Ultraguard is designed and manufactured in Scotland, ensuring the highest quality workmanship and is covered by a 2-year warranty against defects and component failures.
An alternative to hull cleaning and scraping, Ultraguard keeps your hull and other important components clean and free from marine growth. Marine growth increases drag and fuel consumption, which increases operating costs and negatively impacts the environment. Antifouling bottom paint is a known pollutant and the cost to maintain it can be substantial. Furthermore, it is nearly impossible to control marine growth in sea chests and box coolers, which can result in decreased performance of your vessel. Not only will an Ultraguard Antifouling System reduce your operating costs, it is also better for the environment and marine life.
