BIOCIDE-FREE FOULING RELEASE – REDUCED FUEL CONSUMPTION
For over 20 years, our research and development scientists have worked on biocide-free technologies to keep a ship’s underwater hull fouling free for prolonged periods.
This innovative R&D process has resulted in the development of the SIGMAGLIDE® range of fouling release coatings, with the first composition – SIGMAGLIDE LSE – being launched in 1995. Since then, PPG’s policy of intensive, continuous development has focused on ways to improve performance whilst minimizing the product’s ecological footprint.
As a result, within the SIGMA COATINGS portfolio, we are now marketing two fouling release coatings from the SIGMAGLIDE product family: SIGMAGLIDE 890 and SIGMAGLIDE 990.
