Eco-Clad® Antifouling Bottom Paint is based on breakthrough biotechnology designed to work with nature to repel and prevent hard fouling. The benefits of Eco-Clad® include superior antifouling performance and reduced hull drag, which provides for increased vessel speed and increased fuel efficiency. This translates to lower operational costs while minimizing environmental impact.
Hull drag has a significant affect on a full displacement vessel’s operational performance. Key sources of hull drag include biofouling and maybe even your current AF paint. Bottom paint can be rough enough to influence your vessel’s performance. Eco-Clad® goes on smooth, self-levels to a hard, low-profile surface that cuts through the water easily and stays clean and smooth for the long haul.
The reach of today’s mega yachts is truly global, creating performance challenges unique to their operation. As these vessels travel the world, their hull is exposed to a broad range of water conditions and fouling species. Most traditional antifouling paints are tuned to local water conditions (warm or cold, fresh or salt), but Eco-Clad® is effective in a broad range of water types and quality, allowing you to travel great distances and to unfamiliar waters with confidence. Eco-Clad® is recognized as TBT-free by Llyod’s Register. Eco-Clad®: hard, durable, smooth and effective against biofouling. Get there faster and use less fuel. The perfect solution for your extended cruise.
