At the SLF (Skandinaviska Lackteknikers Förbund) congress held 7-8 September in Sandefjord, Norway Jotun was awarded the CSI (Coatings Society International) Gold Medallion 2009 for best technical paper and presentation. Dr. Erik Risberg held the award-winning presentation with the title "Water uptake of commercial Anti-Fouling coatings with binders based on trialkylsilyl acrylates or metal acrylates/carboxylates". The SLF scientific committee consisting of Olav Marstokk from Jotun, Edvard Dæhlen from Carboline and Michael Aamodt from Hempel was the jury. Dr. Risberg explained in his presentation that anti-fouling paints do not work well in fresh water in rivers. In China a large number of shipyards are located in rivers. Jotun’s study has shown which Anti-Fouling technology is preferable for these conditions.
