Fouling Release

Designed to reduce vessel fuel consumption 5% on average, our proven Fouling Release coatings make Hempel the most reliable Fouling Release supplier in the shipping industry. 

Like Fouling Defence coatings, our Fouling Release coatings includes hydrogel which forms a smooth non-stick surface on the hull, making it difficult for fouling organisms to attach. The result is less drag in the water and lower fuel consumption – giving you a more efficient fleet and a superb return on your investment.

Better environmental performance

Our solution is completely biocide-free and reduces CO2 emissions without leaching active ingredients into the marine environment. Our fouling release technology can be used on any type of marine vessel, and applied on most other fouling control coating.
