Nanotech Coating Improves Ship Flow

Monday, November 30, 2009

Comment | More

The Norwegian company Advanced Marine Coatings has used Bayer MaterialScience’s Baytubes® carbon nanotubes (CNT) to develop an anti-corrosive coating with reduced flow resistance, according to an announcement from Bayer. The CNT gives the new coating, Green Ocean Coating Heavy Duty, high abrasion resistance and reduces the flow resistance between the ship’s hull and the water, Bayer says.

The two-component epoxy mastic coating has high resistance to water, making it suitable for marine coatings, especially for the part of the hull below the surface of the water. The CNT gives the coating a very smooth surface, which saves fuel and reduces carbon dioxide emissions, says Bayer.

Bayer MaterialScience is headquartered in Leverkusen, Germany.
