Nano Acrylate Technology

Instant antifouling protection.

Our specially designed water-activated nano acrylate technology uses nano capsules to control polishing. When seawater comes into contact with the nano capsules, it penetrates the hydrophobic outer shell. The hydrophilic inner core chemically hydrolyses and then expands which breaks through the outer shell, enabling controlled polishing. Consistent self-polishing and a constantly thin leach layer ensure uniform biocide release over the entire docking interval. Unlike other premium antifouling technologies, nano acrylate technology provides immediate antifouling protection without the need for water friction.

Special microfibres reinforce the binder, providing a skeleton effect that gives the coating enhanced mechanical strength and makes it more resistant to cracking.

GLOBIC antifouling starts working at full strength as soon as the hull meets the water. No need to worry about lack of water friction
