Fouling Release

Reduce your vessels’ fuel consumption with the industry’s most trusted fouling release hull coatings.

With silicone-hydrogel technology, our fouling release coatings deliver average fuel savings of five per cent over the entire docking interval.

This is because the silicone-hydrogel combination forms a smooth non-stick surface on your vessel’s hull. This makes it difficult for fouling organisms to attach, which reduces drag in the water and lowers fuel consumption. The end result? You get a more efficient fleet and a superb return on your investment.

Easy application
Our silicone hydrogel coatings can be applied on any type of marine vessel. And, because they are easy to apply on top of almost any other fouling control coating, you can make the switch at any time.

Better environmental performance
By reducing your fuel consumption, our fouling release coatings reduce your vessel’s CO2 emissions. They are also biocide-free, meaning there are no biocides released into the marine environment. As a result, you get lower fuel bills and significantly improve the environmental performance of your fleet.
