Jotun has unveiled the next generation of its SeaForce biocidal antifouling range, with three new products featuring hydractive technology.

The range features three core products: SeaForce Shield, offering effective protection; SeaForce Active, actively working to safeguard hulls even when vessels are not is use; and SeaForce Active Plus, delivering the best protection at an affordable price. The latter two also feature a triple biocide package, one of which is the same biocide combination used in the top of the range SeaQuantum product portfolio.

Dr Erik Risberg, global marketing director at Jotun Marine Coatings, said: “With our proprietary HydractiveTM technology we can deliver a ‘best in class’ solution for long-term clean hulls and protection.

“That translates to competitive advantage for both our customers and us. We’re excited to see industry reaction to what we regard as a significant step forward in anti-fouling performance within this market segment.”

Hydractive technology effectively slows down the water uptake of the antifouling, meaning that biocides are released in a more predictable pattern over the lifetime of the coating. This results in stable, high quality performance to keep customers’ vessel hulls cleaner in the long-term.
