Marine HD Application BusAds NavalSolution to Protect Vessels
Marine HD Applications The Challenge► Protecting the vessel life at sea► Antifouling agent that is antibiotic and toxic to gram negative organisms► Insoluble in sea water► Non-photolytic► Inertness on copper application► Environmentally friendly
Marine HD Applications The BenchmarksThe choice of application in any area can have positiveimpact on initial and life-cycle costs of maintenance.The coatings industry has seen major changes inrecent years.Materials that were effective in years past may havebecome ineffective, as organisms have developed aresistance to an anti-fouling toxin.In other instances, coating application and removal methodshave become unacceptable or expensive.
