Chugoku Marine Paints Expands Selektope-containing Antifouling Coating Range
Chugoku Marine Paints introduced a new antifouling coating containing the barnacle-repellent active agent Selektope. SEA PREMIER 3000 PLUS is the eighth product developed by CMP that contains Selektope.
SEA PREMIER 3000 PLUS is a self-polishing coating based on silyl polymer technology. It delivers excellent slime and algal resistance with the combined power of Selektope and cuprous oxide for superior hard fouling prevention. Developed initially for use in the Japanese domestic market by coastal vessels, SEA PREMIER 3000 PLUS is particularly suitable for vessels operating with a low activity rate or at low speed. The coating is also suitable for use in niche areas, such as sea chests and interior-grating-bow thruster tunnels.
