Novel coating development
Antifouling coating technologies are developing rapidly with greater demands in terms of biocide regulation and compatibility with hull maintenance.
Developing new antifouling coatings is expensive and time consuming, so ensuring your efforts are dedicated to the most promising prototypes is essential.
The Centre assists its clients, in confidence, with coating development right from the concept stage, through to bespoke biocide efficacy studies and specifically designed laboratory and field tests. We make sure your prototype coatings are compared to relevant industry standards and tested using scientifically robust methods to provide you, and your investors, with maximum confidence in the results.
