The US Navy has used SEA-SPEED since 2001. It was ideally suited as a paint for aluminum boat, particularly Special operations (SOC) type vessels that are very high speed and used in extreme conditions. It can be applied to steel or aluminum hulls on all types of Military craft. The SEA-SPEED marine bottom paint forms a hard yet flexible elastomeric coating that can be applied direct to metal as an aluminum boat paint or over our marine epoxy.
Our SEAPOXY 85, Marine Epoxy paint was developed to work in conjunction with the flexible silicone foul release paint topcoat. Applying Boat Bottom Paint Has become easier and more cost efficient.
It is impermeable and durable enough to handle extreme usage by Special operations groups. The coating has a very low coefficient of friction, as well as low surface energy resulting in reduced hull drag. The fluorinated polysiloxane (Silicone paint) technology yields a glossy slick surface that helps reduce
adhesion of marine growth. Unlike toxic bottom boat paint, SEA-SPEED can be scrubbed without damaging the coating or releasing toxic cuprous oxides or biocides into the water. Whereas conventional bottom paints may last several years, SEA-SPEED is a non-depleting material that does not polish or ablate.
It is also applicable to vessels that are on trailers for extended periods. The cured coating is inert and will not be affected by being kept out of the water. Depending on the vessel design, increases in speed and fuel economy may be realized.
