Findings on Biofouling Extent and Composition

What can we learn about the scale of the problem?

Findings on Biofouling Extent and Composition Safinah Group has a unique database of fouling control coating performance across different coating manufacturers. The database is built on insights from coating supervision activities at dry dock since 2010. We have been supporting businesses willing to learn more about the latest trends on all aspects of marine coatings from fouling prevention through to tank linings, conducting market and technology studies on their behalf.

Recently, we assisted a bio-technology company in gaining some insight into the extent and composition of biofouling present on a sample of vessels. The research was featured in several industry publications, including TradeWinds, VPOGlobal and The Naval Architect (June 2020 issue, p 33).

A copy of the white paper issued by I-Tech AB, which includes some of the findings, can be found here.


Our Coatings Technology and Special Projects Teams can assist with data insights on coating performance, market analysis and the latest trends in coating innovation.
