At long last, a truly aesthetic, professional and cost-effective boat wrapping solution to personalise the hull of your boat: the TuningFilm range developed by MACtac offers you 53 colours and textures to revamp your sailboat or motorboat!

Brussels, 4th March 2013 – MACtac, a global leader for over 50 years in self-adhesive solutions is now offering its famous TuningFilm range for the personalisation of boat hulls (above water line). The range is already internationally appreciated and recognised in the automotive industry (car wrapping). A plethora of colours and textures, aesthetics, durability and protection of the gel coat are the key words associated with boat wrapping with TuningFilms which are now also available to boating enthusiasts.

An unparalleled plethora of colours and effects to let your imagination run free

The TuningFilm range is available in 45 unique and trendy colours and material effects. You can choose from fifteen colours in gloss or matt versions (Scandinavian blue, Aubergine, Orange flash…), brushed, carbon (black, graphite, white…) or structured effects, such as a natural leather finish, and even radiant colour combinations with the iridescent TuningFilms (white, blue/green and fuchsia/green).

A unique, flexible, quick, cost-effective and durable solution to protect your boat

Giving a second youth to your boat is no longer an impossible dream. The hull of a 30-foot sailboat, for example, can be completely coloured in just 2 days and at a lower cost than when using paint. You may even consider applying a new texture, e.g. a carbon or brushed aluminium finish (in several versions), which is not possible with paint. TuningFilms last for several years and are resistant to fading, abrasion and UV. They are particularly maintenance-friendly and protect your hull above the waterline, while also being removable. Another significant advantage of boat wrapping wiht TuninFilm compared with paint: you can revert to the initial hull if you plan on selling your boat.

Zlatan Zoricic, skipper of an IMX X45 “Barbra Bank”, former Croatian Olympic sailing team coach:

“We chose to apply TuningFilm, because we were impressed by the aesthetics, colour and gloss of the film. A welcome surprise was that the whole operation took only 2 days. The hull looks like new again and maintenance is quite easy.”

Jean-Pierre Lambrechts, owner of a Beneteau 27.7 “CapOkaz”: “I wanted to repaint the hull, but instead I opted for TuningFilm Scandinavian blue. This alternative to paint offers very good value for money and a professional result. I also like the fact that the film protects the gel coat, which is an advantage if I ever want to sell the boat.”

Environment friendly high-end technology to embellish your hull down to the smallest of curves

The TuningFilm range is the fruit of the know-how of MACtac’s Research & Development teams: they work with the microstructured adhesive technology, which offers significant advantages to the professional application partners of the MACtac network. At the time of application, boat wrapping with TuningFilm is painless thanks to the thickness of the film allowing for a good hand grip and the low tack adhesive permitting an  easy repositioning of the film. Adhesion is optimal even in concave curves - a critical characteristic in the case of hulls. The final appearance is impeccable and the surface finish exceptional. Moreover, TuningFilms do not emit solvents. MACtac is a member of EcoNav*.
