Foul Release Coatings - Advanced Fluoropolymer Foul Release Coating

Specifically designed to tackle the problem of slime on vessel performance, this latest innovation in the Intersleek range, delivers outstanding micro and macro fouling control with better static resistance even in warm waters.

The new patented advanced fluoropolymer effectively releases slime even at low speeds. As a result vessels will have reduce drag, improved fuel efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions, even if slow steaming.

Intersleek 1100SR is the industry’s first biocide-free, slime release coating featuring patented fluoropolymer technology. Its tailored surface chemistry specifically influences the settlement and adhesion of organisms that make up slime. As a result, all vessels can benefit from reduced drag, improved fuel efficieny and reduced CO2 emissions without the use of biocides.

  • Foul release: characteristics and rate of release

    The new patented fluoropolymer was developed to improve the resistance to silt using the results achieved by the latest research from the International laboratories, to give the latest generation of Intersleek maximum results in terms of cleaning and fuel economy.

    By maintaining a balance between the hydrophobic and hydrophilic properties of the paint, the perfect balance is achieved to discourage the adhesion of the vegetation in the most effective way.

    Foul level reduction

    The uniqueness of the effect of the new fluoropolymer with patented technology reduces the level of silt coverage in the naval units in service. As a result, the boats keep their cleaning for the duration of the cycle.
