Silicone elastomer foul release coatings provide an ultra smooth, slippery, hydrophobic surface and are chemically durable. There is no film degradation, polishing or other chemical change, so extended drydocking intervals are possible.

The smooth surface means fouling organisms are typically unable to attach, or have difficulty settling onto the surface.
Intersleek®700 is our silicone foul release coating, comprising a scheme of products:
Intersleek®757 - a three-pack, silicone elastomer foul release coating.
Intersleek®737 - a three-pack, silicone elastomer tie coat.
