PPG Protective and Marine Coatings (PPG) has launched Sigma Ecofleet 690, designed to deliver self-polishing antifouling for extreme and aggressive fouling conditions.

 

Developed specifically for the dry dock, maintenance and repair market, Sigma Ecofleet 690 has been formulated using PPG’s unique patented binder technology ensuring consistent performance levels and fouling control for in-service periods of up to 60 months.

 

Fully compliant with the IMO AFS Convention, the product is suitable for a wide range of vessel types and contains an ultra-high volume solids content of 70% - thus reducing potential VOC emissions. Sigma Ecofleet 690 has been formulated to be easy to apply, increasing productivity and reducing overall maintenance costs.
