New eco-friendly bottom paint launched

Adaptive Surface Technologies has released SLIPS Foul Protect N1x, an environmentally friendly and bio-fouling-resistant marine bottom paint.

The new paint uses the company’s patented coatings technology to create an ultra-smooth, slippery surface designed for use in saltwater and freshwater. Since it does not contain biocides, the coating does not kill algae, barnacles, mussels and other organisms; it simply presents a surface they are reluctant to adhere to and from which they can easily be removed, according to the company.

“SLIPS Foul Protect N1x represents over two years of product development and global testing to create a superior product that lasts multiple seasons, improves fuel efficiency, and isn’t harmful to the environment like so many of the existing copper-based solutions today,” stated  David Ward, CEO of Adaptive Surface Technologies.

AST received financial assistance from the U.S. Department of Energy’s ARPA-E program in developing its Foul Protect product line. The Massachusetts-based industrial technology company produces coatings and repellent materials for industrial, marine and medical applications. For more information, visit adaptivesurface.tech.
