PPG Industries has introduced a new antifouling coating that is designed for control in aggressive environments and suitable for a wide range of vessels. The coating is designed to deliver self-polishing antifouling for extreme and aggressive fouling conditions.

"Sigma Ecofleet 690” has been developed for the dry dock, maintenance and repair market and uses the company’s patented binder technology, allowing for fouling control for in-service periods of up to 60 months.The product contains a high-volume solids content of 70 percent and is suitable for a wide range of vessel types. It is fully compliant with the IMO AFS Convention, PPG said.

"Aggressive hull fouling is a problem for ship owners operating in coastal and short-sea trades where vessels can be inactive more than 50 percent of the time,” said Sijmen Visser, PPG global marketing manager, M and R. "The coating has been designed specifically to deliver high-quality, self-polishing antifouling for vessels with low activity and/or those operating in waters where fouling is known to be a particular problem.”
