THE BEST FOR THE BOAT AND
DID YOU KNOW?
One of our biggest global problems is almost invisible - hidden underneath the surface: toxic coatings on commercial ships. For decades tons of microplastic and biocides have been released into our ocean. That systematically destroys ecosystems and habitats.
The commercial shipping industry struggles with algae and barnacle growth. This leads to 40 % higher fuel consumption and an estimated damage of 150 billion € annually.
For shipping companies who need an antifouling solution, the product Ecoating is a toxin-free coating. Ecoating is a combination of a nano-structured patented particle and a polymer matrix, so-called Polyramic. Their magic is a uniquely smooth surface that is easy to clean and it is at least two years more durable than conventional coatings. Due to the smooth surface and the longer servicing cycle, Ecoating can save shipping companies up to 600.000€ per vessel per year.
