Subsea Industries has solved the cardinal problems companies are faced with when trying to square optimum hull performance with effective, environmentally-safe ship hull protection.
Marking a breakthrough in the competitive coatings market, the Antwerp-based pioneer in non-toxic, environmentally-sustainable coatings, has optimised its Ecospeed range of hard coat marine coatings to reduce hull friction by up to 40%, resulting in a comparable percentage saving in fuel consumption.
Subsea Industries now has more than 500 ship references for its marine hard coating technology.
Manuel Hof, Production Executive and NACE Coatings Inspector at Subsea Industries, said: “We have cracked a number of really important problems with one simple, highly cost-effective approach to hull antifouling. Not only have we optimised hull surface r
