Protective coatings maker Jotun has released a novel high-performance marine coating based on epoxy-polysiloxane technology.

The biocide-free, low-VOC emissions formulation, "SeaLion Resilient”, combines a compound of resins and hardeners that provides highly resilient hull protection with the manufacturer’s own foulig-release technology. The new formulation prevents settling of organisms on the hull and produces a glossy, smooth surface optimised for owners seeking to reduce costs related to dry-docking and maintenance.

Designed for owners and managers seeking mproved maintenance and docking efficiency, the coating can reduce the risk of mechanical damage and maintain hull condition throughout the service period.

The coating requires only two coats and is easy to apply, according to the manufacturer. "We are confident that cruise ship owners will recognise the value of using a product that combines a glossy appearance with anti-abrasive qualities that effectively prevent most types of mechanical damage,” said Jorunn Saetnoe, product manager for antifouling.
