To Foul or Not to Foul
16/07/2019
The debate and discussion on antifouling coatings are evermore becoming a popular topic in today’s shipping world. Reason for which is that shipowners face myriad options of coatings that each promise different characteristics and benefits. For example, certain specialized paints intend to slowdown marine growth on a vessel’s hull, affecting the performance and longevity of the application. Driving factors such as the strive to save fuel and the choice of low emission coatings, contribute to the growth of the ‘marine coatings market’ over the past few years.

Today, there are at least 50 different antifouling coatings available in the market. Understandably, each shipowner has to overcome the challenge of analyzing, evaluating and selecting the product they believe best fits their needs.

Atlantis recently drydocked several vessels of their 3500 and 6000 dwt fleet at Gisan Shipyard.  An array of alternative antifouling coatings were tested. These include Sail Advance RX from PPG (applied on Armona, Antalya and Alvarado), Dynamic 8000 (applied on Alhambra) and Hempaguard X7 (applied on Andaman and soon to be applied on Antibes) both from Hempel.

Armona Denizcilik, the technical arm of Atlantis Tankers, consider Hempaguard X7 to be a game-changer. The service period of this kind of antifouling coating is 60 months. Furthermore, for Andaman’s next Class Special Survey (2024), the vessel will not need blasting when compared to conventional antifouling coatings. Only a single coat of paint will be applied to the current coating system, which will save costs and render less dry-docking days.

Hempaguard X7 is a silicone-based advanced fouling control coating with high levels of solid content. It provides smooth, low surface energy, repellent surface with unique fouling control properties. These characteristics allow for high fuel savings potential and are especially suitable for vessels operating with long idle periods or in warm waters. The coating truly allows for flexible trading, fuel savings and fouling defence at any speed or during idle periods.
