Marine Fouling Solutions
Mariners have fought the problems of organic marine growth on ship bottoms ever since ships first went to sea. Until about 20 years ago, hull paints made with tin were the popular choice to prevent fouling. With the discovery that tin damages marine ecosystems, coatings manufacturers turned to copper instead. Copper also damages ecosystems, and the coatings industry, academia, and government laboratories continue to seek an environmentally friendly solution.

Our coatings achieve non-fouling efficacy through carefully blended mechanisms:

  • Microphase separation of materials
  • Hydrophobicity
  • Polymers that are mobile at the surface
  • Hard-slick surfaces
  • Emulsifiers that interfere with marine adhesion mechanisms.

Our unique technologies and solutions have received United States of America and International patents.
