Jotun launches new bottom paint

Apr 10, 2013 by Guest Writer

Norway-based paint manufacturer Jotun has introduced SeaLion Resilient, a marine coating based on epoxy-polysiloxane technology that it claims is “the world’s first resilient antifouling.”



The epoxy-polysiloxane prevents settling of organisms on the hull and produces a glossy, smooth surface optimised for owners seeking to reduce costs related to dry-docking and maintenance, the company said in a statement announcing the new product.



The product was launched at the Miami Cruise Shipping Exhibition in March.
