PPG Industries has introduced a new antifouling coating that is designed for control in aggressive environments and suitable for a wide range of vessels.

Sigma Ecofleet 690 is designed to deliver self-polishing antifouling for extreme and aggressive fouling conditions, according to PPG.

PPG's Sigma Ecofleet 690 uses patented binder technology and provides self-polishing antifouling protection, the company says.

Patented Technology

The coating is for the dry dock, maintenance and repair market and uses PPG's patented binder technology, allowing for fouling control for in-service periods of up to 60 months, according to the company.

The product contains an ultra-high-volume solids content of 70 percent and is suitable for a wide range of vessel types. Sigma Ecofleet 690 is fully compliant with the IMO AFS Convention, PPG said.

"Aggressive hull fouling is a problem for shipowners operating in coastal and short-sea trades where vessels can be inactive more than 50 percent of the time," said Sijmen Visser, PPG global marketing manager, M and R.

Sigma Ecofleet 690 "has been designed specifically to deliver high-quality, self-polishing antifouling for vessels with low activity and/or those operating in waters where fouling is known to be a particular problem."
