PPG Industries introduce Sigma Syladvance 700 coating to protect vessels with flexible service speeds, trade patterns.

Based on the successful Sigma Syladvance 800 premium antifouling product, PPG say that their new Sigma Syladvance 700 coating extends the line with an "entry-level" product, making premium technology available for a different set of requirements.

Sijmen Visser, PPG global marketing manager, marine, said, “Antifouling coatings have evolved over the past decade, in some part due to technological advances but also because of the very real need for vessel operators to reduce fuel costs whilst continuing to optimise voyage efficiency. Silyl-acrylate technology is at the forefront of the drive to reduce fuel spend, which in many cases can take up 50 percent of an entire ship's daily operating costs. PPG has been working hard to develop hard-wearing, environmentally-sound products that can offer fuel savings.”

Sigma Syladvance 700 coating is based on patented silyl acrylate polymer technology and offers self-smoothing properties and outstanding fouling protection. The untainted nature of the binder delivers consistent antifouling performance and an uncompromised, predictable linear polishing pattern that, in turn, can significantly reduce frictional drag.

PPG Industries adds that Sigma Syladvance 700 coating is a pure silyl acrylate premium antifouling product from the same family as Sigma Syladvance  800 coating, a silyl acrylate antifouling product with a proven track record. Sigma Syladvance 800 coating has been used on a wide range of vessel types for both newbuilding and maintenance/repair projects by a number of operators worldwide, including Piraeus-based shipmanager Chandris (Hellas) Inc.
