of surfaces in marine and power generation environments has been a long
standing problem. Submerged surfaces quickly develop a slimy biofilm consisting
of bacteria and algae.
This biofilm serves as a food source ultimately
attracting barnacles and other biofouling organisms that attach to the vessel
hull or a power utility coolant water intake tunnel, creating a thick living
For the marine user, this biofouling results in drag, reducing a ship
fuel efficiency, speed and maneuverability. In the power generation arena, this
biofiouling reduces the efficiencies of circulating water and related systems.
recently, the universal approach to this problem for marine operators was the
use of toxic anti-fouling coatings. The power industry has relied on harsh
chemical treatments or expensive shutdowns to remove the problem species.
Hunt Smart Surfaces, LLC is now proud to introduce its Duplex Fouling Release
System technology. Our non-toxic solution is a patented, thicker, stronger,
effective silicone-based coating that causes marine organisms to release from
surfaces. A solution that will not only save the sea, but also save your budget.
