Intercept® Linear Polishing Polymer
Intercept®, a family of patented antifouling coatings, providing consistent, predictable linear polishing performance.
How did we achieve this?
Intercept products feature unique patented Lubyon® polymer technology which replicated the linear polishing behavior of the shipping industry benchmark tributyltin based antifoulings, but without the environmental concerns of TBT antifoulings. Specifically designed for the deep sea market, they enable ship owners and operators to plan and budget effectively throughout the docking cycle, for in-service periods of up to 90 months.
What is Lubyon® Polymer Technology?
The Lubyon polymer is 'superhyrdophilic', meaning it is water loving. This creates a lubricating effect at the coating surface, resulting in a low friction, very smooth and slippery surface on immersion, which is then maintained throughout the lifetime of the coating. With surface friction reduced, it results in less drag with subsequent reduced fuel and *emissions savings, compared to other antifouling coatings.
Designed for the deep sea market at Newbuilding and maintenance and repair, the Intercept® range offers a suite of products designed to meet customers differing performance expectations.
Unique Lubyon technology reacts with seawater via a constant surface active zone, releasing the optimal amount of biocide constantly over the scheme life to prevent fouling settlement. This release rate is largely unaffected by seawater temperature.
