Generic Type

Self-polishing, Tin-Free Antifouling Coating

Common Usage

A self-polishing, tin-free antifouling coating formulated to provide long-term protection against marine growth and organisms. Incorporates advanced fusion technology during operation that will provide long-lasting antifoul protection even in the harshest marine environments. Typically used on the underwater hull of ships and other marine vessels. Formulated for up to thirty-six months service life, dependent upon operational conditions and total DFT applied. Note: On immersion, Series 194 HullClad CU may exhibit a slight color change. For the expectations of performance from this antifouling product in static conditions, it is necessary to consider the environmental conditions i.e., traditional level of fouling activity, pollution levels, and water temperatures at static locations.
