New Sher-Release Coating System

Friday, May 01, 2009

Sherwin-Williams Protective and Marine Coatings announced new Sher-Release Silicone Fouling Release Coating System, a nontoxic alternative to conventional antifouling coatings. A U.S. Navy patented solution, Sher-Release combines durability, longevity, clean-ability and cost-effectiveness.

It is an ideal coating for hull applications to a range of ships, helping to prevent fouling of the underwater hull by barnacles, mussels and other marine organisms. The system’s foulant release technology combines an epoxy anti-corrosive system and a tough, protective silicone surface coat interlocked by a unique elastomeric formula. The Sher-Release system’s surface provides steady long-term performance that is less prone to mechanical damages.

Non-toxic Sher-Release contains no heavy metals or biocides. It is effective at speeds as low as 10 knots and offers effective service for a 60 months dry-dock interval. Estimates show that Sher-Release can reduce fuel consumption by six to ten percent thereby reducing CO2 emission significantly

Another environmental advantage of Sher-Release is its low level of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). It is easily applied by airless spray equipment and significantly reduces the maintenance and downtime of vessels.
