Jotun Introduces the World’s First Resilient Antifouling

Press Release
Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Jotun has announced the launch of SeaLion Resilient, a high performance marine coating based on epoxy-polysiloxane technology.


Following extensive research and testing, Jotun has introduced the industry’s first anti-fouling coating that includes epoxy-polysiloxane, a compound of resins and hardeners that provides highly resilient hull protection. When combined with Jotun’s proven Fouling Release Coatings (FRC) technology, the epoxy-polysiloxane in SeaLion Resilient prevents settling of organisms on the hull and produces a glossy, smooth surface optimised for owners seeking to reduce costs related to dry-docking and maintenance.


SeaLion Resilient has been specifically formulated for owners and managers seeking improved maintenance and docking efficiency. The properties of SeaLion Resilient significantly reduce the risk of mechanical damage and maintain hull condition throughout the service period. By simplifying maintenance and reducing need for repair, SeaLion Resilient can contribute to a significant reduction in off-hire time and docking and labour costs, while keeping paint consumption to a minimum.


In addition to the strong coating features reducing mechanical damage, SeaLion Resilient resists fouling and provides a smooth surface that decreases drag and hence effecting carbon emissions by savings in fuel consumption.

 

Requiring only two coats, Sea Lion Resilient is easy to apply and cuts time spent in dock, resulting in significant savings related to maintenance and repair.


Consistent with Jotun’s sustainability program, (Jotun GreenSteps), SeaLion Resilient is a biocide-free coating and has low VOC emissions, making it a sustainable coating solution.


According to Jorunn Saetnoe, Product Manager Antifouling , the formal launch of Sea Lion Resilient will take place at the Miami Cruise Shipping Exhibition (March 11-14).  “We are confident that cruise ship owners will recognize the value of using a product that combines a glossy appearance with anti-abrasive qualities that effectively prevent most types of mechanical damage,” she says.  “And for owners operating Caribbean cruises, where warm and shallow waters contribute to rapid fouling, Sea Lion Resilient helps reduce costs related to underwater cleaning and cuts the risk of transferring of invasive species to highly regulated areas.”
