I-TECH seals European market acceptance for Selektope

01 December 2015

The first publicly-disclosed commercial application for a marine coating featuring Selektope started on November 1 in Singapore, swiftly after developer I-Tech secured European Commission sign-off that the revolutionary antifouling substance can also be used by yards anywhere in Europe. Selektope deters barnacles from settling on ship hulls by stimulating the swimming action of larvae. It is included as a 0.1% constituent of antifouling coatings – a fraction of the active substance needed to achieve comparable performance if traditional copper biocides are used. It has also been fully approved in Japan, Korea and China.
