Jotun unveiled the next-generation of its SeaForce biocidal antifouling range, with three new products featuring Hydractive technology. 

Jotun originally launched its SeaForce range in 2004. Since then it has recorded more than 27,000 vessel applications worldwide.

“SeaForce is a cornerstone portfolio in our marine coating range,” said Dr, Erik Risberg, Global Marketing Director, Jotun Marine Coatings, “but we felt the time was right to push its performance further, providing next level protection for our customers while consolidating its position within the marketplace. Shipping has changed over the past decade and a half, creating a different customer need, and we want to evolve with that demand to keep delivering optimal solutions. That, in essence, led to the idea for Hydractive technology.”

Hydractive is designed to effectively slow down the water uptake of the antifouling, meaning that biocides are released in a more predictable pattern over the lifetime of the coating. This results in stable, high quality performance for the long-term, with SeaForce keeping customers’ vessel hulls cleaner, for longer.

The range features three core products: SeaForce Shield, offering effective protection; SeaForce Active, actively working to safeguard hulls even when vessels are not is use; and SeaForce Active Plus, delivering premium protection at an affordable price.

SeaForce Active and SeaForce Active Plus also feature a triple biocide package, one of which is the same market leading biocide combination used in the top of the range SeaQuantum product portfolio.
