Protective coatings maker Jotun has released SeaLion Resilient, a high-performance marine coating based on epoxy-polysiloxane technology.

The biocide-free, low-VOC emissions formulation combines "a compound of resins and hardeners that provides highly resilient hull protection" with Jotun's own fouling-release technology, according to the Norway-based manufacturer.

SeaLion Resilient "prevents settling of organisms on the hull and produces a glossy, smooth surface optimized for owners seeking to reduce costs related to dry-docking and maintenance," Jotun said in a product announcement.

Applications and Characteristics

Designed "for owners and managers seeking improved maintenance and docking efficiency," Jotun says the coating can "reduce the risk of mechanical damage and maintain hull condition throughout the service period."

Jotun SeaLion Resilient

SeaLion Resilient prevents settling of organisms on the hull and produces a smooth surface, according to Jotun.

SeaLion Resilient requires only two coats and is easy to apply, according to the manufacturer.

"We are confident that cruise ship owners will recognize the value of using a product that combines a glossy appearance with anti-abrasive qualities that effectively prevent most types of mechanical damage," said Jorunn Saetnoe, product manager for antifouling.

"And for owners operating Caribbean cruises, where warm and shallow waters contribute to rapid fouling, SeaLion Resilient helps reduce costs related to underwater cleaning and cuts the risk of transferring of invasive species to highly regulated areas."
