AMINE TERMINATED SILICON RESIN (WITH NANO FLUID SURFACE TECHNOLOGIES)
SAW-112 is a reactive amine terminated silicone curing agent with Nano Fluid Surface Technologies (NFST) used as a crosslinker to improve the antifouling properties and longterm performance of epoxysiloxane antifouling coatings.
All solid surfaces, even nonstick or smooth ones, are inherently rough on a microscopic level, creating many points that pin a fluid to the surface and cause it to smear NFST surfaces feature a stable, immobilized liquid lubricant overlayer. Unlike solid surfaces, this liquid surface is truly smooth and extremely slippery. Fluids and biological fouling agents have nothing to hold on to and slide right off.
NFST transform the surface of a solid material into a thin, immobilized of lubricant. This liquid silicon lubricant overlayer completely covers the solid material to create a smooth and slippery liquid surface interface.
Barnacles, mussels and algae stick to the hulls of ships, creating extra drag that costs the shipping industry billions of dollars each year in extra fuel. Most antifouling coatings today are copperbased and therefore toxic. Ship operators are looking for an effective and environmentally friendly solution such as the NFST.
