Rydlyme is a simple, safe, effective and biodegradable marine descaler designed to dissolve fouling mediums which hinder the performance of water systems.

Rydlyme is effective, dissolving approx. 1 kg. of the toughest calcium deposit per 4 litre in a matter of hours.

Rydlyme is safe, non-corrosive to virtually all materials in water based equipment.  It is non-hazardous and non-toxic.

Rydlyme is biodegradable, disposable through normal sewer systems and even directly into the sea or inland waterways.

Rydlyme is economical, enabling you to clean-in-place with the advantage of reducing your workload and operating costs.


 SOLTRON® is not a biocide. It has been scientifically tested for microbial control, and contaminated fuel filtration. Fuel starvation in Petrol and Diesel engines is often caused by contamination of the fuel filter surface. Tests show that a double dose of SOLTRON® produces an inexpensive and rapid clean up of the fuel delivery system without causing a mat of dead biomass in the tank bottom. Contaminated fuel can normally be burned off.

Sulphate Reducing Bacteria (SRBs) live in tank bottom sludge and are inaccessible to biocides. Corrosion and hydrogen sulphide from SRBs are a significant problem. SOLTRON® is an effective solution to this; converting the Hydrocarbon elements in sludge back into fuel. For more information about microbiological problems go to,

SOLTRON® increases the combustion efficiency of fuels which result in cleaner turbochargers, exhaust systems, and reduced odour.  SOLTRON®'s enzymes added to liquid fuels reduce emissions and improve fuel and thermal efficiency in internal combustion engines and boilers. Any process that burns fossil fuel oils can benefit from the application of SOLTRON®.

Corrosion Block

Corrosion Block is an anti-corrosion compound developed exclusively to stop existing corrosion and prevent new. It is unique in that it is designed for use in electrics and electronics as well as metals and structures. This makes this product essential for your day-to-day routine maintenance and as long-term asset protection for your boat/equipment within the harsh marine environment.

Is a VERY sophisticated water displacement product designed as corrosion prevention and inhibiting compound with the added advantage that it will stop existing corrosion, prevent new forming and is slow to deteriorate (it has a 12 to 18 month active life). It is also a very efficient penetrant, without loosening structural attachments and an excellent lubricant, without having any wax, silicon or Teflon additives (which actually seal in moisture thereby aggravating and perpetuating the corrosion process). It is ‘pro-active’, neither passive nor waxy, is compatible with most plastics and rubbers and is EXTREMELY ECONOMICAL IN USE.

Corrosion Block is simply sprayed into the structure, joints and welds, i.e. under hidden areas, where the corrosion works away un-noticed, under panels and on hidden parts of the engine, gear boxes, generators, switch panels and avionics, especially on outboard engines where it will work hard to prevent corrosion and structural degeneration. Where corrosion is already evident it will help inhibit further progress by insulating and electrically ‘switching off’ the corrosion cell. It will also penetrate around bolts, screws and hardware, protecting them from electrolytic corrosion and preventing seizure.

It will protect electrical joints, plugs and components and prevent corrosion causing high resistance joints. This goes for PCBs and electronics as well, such as computerised ignition and fuel control units and their multi pin plugs, radios, radar and antennae, while switches, controls and levers will all be lubricated as well as protected from corrosion. It does not affect the working of electrical or electronic components however keep it off LCDs. Multi pin plugs and connectors benefit from having Corrosion Block applied directly to the contacts. Corrosion Block has restored many a failed electronic/electrical component. Its uses are unending, you will love it!
