ECOSPEED SHIP HULL PROTECTION is an environmentally safe coating system, which improves a ship’s performance and provides it with long-lasting protection.
It consists of a unique, entirely original and thoroughly proven system that combines the advantages of a superior coating applied by a specialized method, a surface treatment for hydrodynamic optimization and a long term underwater maintenance service system.
ECOSPEED is a hard STC non-toxic coating based on vinyl ester resin, reinforced with glass platelets and applied by regular airless spray equipment in two coats of 500 microns DFT each. The imbedded glass platelets make the coating impermeable for water, thus providing an excellent protection against the corrosion and pitting caused by cavitation.
ECOSPEED major benefit for the ship’s hull is that it can be cleaned easily of marine growth, without damaging the coating. On the contrary, after each cleaning operation, the condition of ECOSPEED stays just perfect, thus, keeping the hull always at optimal efficiency. This results in a reduction in ship’s frictional resistance and consequently to significant fuel savings.
The ECOSPEED coating comes with a 10-year guarantee, while no repaint will be needed during all ship’s future drydocks.
ECOSPEED is keeping ships’ hulls fully maintained and always operating at their top performance, at no cost to the precious marine life, as 15 years of experience has clearly shown.Visit Website
