Fouling Defence

For unlimited trading flexibility, fouling protection during long idle periods and significant fuel savings over the entire docking interval, choose our unique fouling defence technology.

With our fouling defence technology, you get the best of two worlds: silicone-hydrogel and diffusion control of biocides, all in a single coat. As a result, you can achieve fuel savings up to 6 per cent compared to best-in-class antifoulings over the entire docking interval – even if your vessel is idle for extended periods, moves slowly or changes trading patterns.
