PPG and Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions have announced to further commercialize their companies’ patented self-adhesive fouling release foil for ship hulls. The foil was developed as part of the eSHaRk project, a consortium of the world’s leading marine experts and engineers working together to create an innovative new fouling protection system.

Another option to existing paint-based solutions

The firms initiated the eSHaRk project to bring to market an advanced fouling protection technology. The aim was twofold: to maintain current state-of-the-art fouling protection standards while also offering another option to existing paint-based solutions - in terms of eco-friendliness, ease of application and drag reduction.

According to the companies other benefits include lower speed loss, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, self-cleaning properties and extended durability, all of which contribute to increased operational profitability. A low environmental impact allows the foil to be applied to vessels operating in the most ecologically delicate environments, let the companies know.
