Commercial Marine using Seacoat
Seacoat’s unique technology forms a hard yet flexible elastomeric coating that is impermeable and highly durable. Silane/Siloxane clear coat foul release coating along with our MIL-SPEC Seapoxy-73 marine epoxy primer are designed for application on steel or aluminium hulls on all types and sizes from ferries to container ships and everything in between.
Seacoat’s SEA-SPEED V10X Ultra Clear is an ideal alternative to soft duplex silicone foul release coatings or conventional toxic ablative anti fouling or SPC (Self Polishing Copolymer) anti fouling paint. Boat bottom paints of the future will need to be environmentally compliant and contribute to increased hull efficiency.
Seacoat’s marine coating technology is highly durable (resistant to abrasion and impact). The coating has a very low coefficient of friction, as well as extremely low surface energy resulting in reduced drag, and improved hull and fuel efficiency. The SEA-SPEED V10X Ultra Clear is extremely smooth, with a surface roughness of around five (5) microns. See testing certification section for more details. Depending on the vessel design, increases in speed and fuel economy up to ten percent (10%) may be realised compared to conventional antifouling paints. SEA-SPEED V10X Ultra Clear is a big step in efforts to reduce emissions and carbon footprint.
Silane/Siloxane clear coat technology is a hard film that is easy to clean and inherently minimising biofouling adhesion of marine growth. Unlike conventional bottom paint, SEA-SPEED V10X Ultra Clear can be underwater cleaned without damaging the coating or releasing toxic cuprous oxides or biocides into the aquatic environment. Whereas conventional bottom painting products may last one to three years, SEA-SPEED V10X Ultra Clear is a non-depleting material that does not polish or ablate. Guaranteed for 10 years and can be applied on new construction or retro-fitted in dry docking.
Large Vessels using Seacoat
Seacoat’s SEA-SPEED V 10 X Ultra Clear hard film polysiloxane clear coat (Silicone) foul release coating technology is an environmentally safe alternative to traditional toxic antifouling paint. Unlike conventional TOXIC boat bottom paint or soft silicone bottom paint, SEA-SPEED V 10 X Ultra Clear can be scrubbed without damaging the coating or releasing toxic cuprous oxides or biocides into the water.
It will last 3 to 5 times longer than conventional bottom paint and provides an ultra-smooth fuel-efficient hull coating. Burning less fuel reduces the overall emissions and carbon footprint of every vessel in your fleet. The low coefficient of friction and low surface energy results in greater hull efficiency. The SEA-SPEED V 10 X Ultra Clear also is extremely smooth with a very low surface roughness of around five (5) microns. See testing certification section for more details. Depending on the vessel design, increases in speed and fuel savings up to ten (10%) percent may be realised compared to antifouling paints.
SEA-SPEED V 10 X Ultra Clear applied over our MIL-SPEC epoxy, Seapoxy-73 makes bottom painting simple and cost-effective. The system is designed for ease of application to steel or aluminium hulls on all types of cruise vessels, cruise ships and ferries. Seacoat’s proprietary technology forms a hard yet flexible elastomeric coating that is impermeable and highly durable (resistant to abrasion and impact). The coating inherently minimises biofouling.
