A new antifouling from Jotun, "SeaQuantum Static", meets customer needs in a shipping market where a number of vessels are going into lay-up. The financial turmoil resulted in a situation where some newbuildings go straight into lay-up for long periods, and more and more vessels enter lay-up for shorter or longer periods directly from dry-docking. Jotun’s new product provides antifouling properties especially adapted to lay-up vessels. It achieves better antifouling protection during lay-up by a higher film erosion rate and a tailor made biocide package. It shall be applied as a last coat on top of the antifouling system designed for trading. The product is also applicable for vessels with a trading scheme and pattern that is on the extreme side, both on low voyage factor and on fouling intensity. It prevents transmigration of non-indigenous species in areas such as sea chests, bow and stern thrusters. It is based on silyl acrylate polymers, true hydrolysing and an optimised biocide combination. The product is self smoothing and self polishing, has a low build-up of leach layer and good mechanical properties.
