Fouling release coating met Oceanspeed Clear for pleasure cruising

The technology of NT 2019 combines in one single product the best of three traditional types of underwater hull coatings, without the need for toxic materials such as Cuprous oxides and biocides. The film coating allows the water to flow smoothly over the surface, making the surface less attractive for biofilm: the coating minimizes fouling from slime, algae, grass and organisms without the use of toxic cuprous oxides and or any biocides.
The smart siloxane fluororate hybrid coating forms a flexible yet tough and long-lasting film, which can excellently withstand abrasion and impacts with fenders, tugs and ice. Thanks to the film’s very low coefficient of friction, it can help reduce fuel consumption and improve the speed: the average hull roughness is in fact significantly lower than other types of underwater coatings.

Features:

  • Environmentally safe, not toxic (it does not contain poison)
  • V.O.C. FREE emissions (volatile organic compounds)
  • Extremely hard film, highly resistant to damage and wear
  • Low coefficient of friction = better speeds and fuel efficiency
  • Equal to or less expensive than Conventional toxic SPC’s and Ablative paints

Benefits:

  • Inferior dry-docking time and costs
  • Lighter than conventional anti-fouling coating systems
  • Easy and fast to apply
  • Can be used in salt and sweet Waters
  • Easy to Clean

Recommended use

One coat application of NT 2018 over anticorrosive epoxy primer on:

  • Underwater hulls
  • Intake tunnels for water cooling systems
  • Underwater sections and production platforms of offshore drilling rigs
  • Sub-sea equipment

Maintenance

To optimize the duration of the protection, it is recommended to follow simple common maintenance. However, to create the maximum beneficial effect the use of an Ultrasonic Anti-Fouling System is strongly recommended.

Lastly, the application of the coating requires minimal time in dry dock, which allows for a reduction in time and costs for application.

Maintenance

To optimize the duration of the protection, it is recommended to follow a simple mechanical maintenance based on constant sail, soft sponge and washing or use concurrently an Ultrasound Hull Protection Systems.
Maintenance methods depends of the type of water and sea-marine growth.
