In 1993 research began on developing a new, long-lasting,non-toxic method of protecting ship hulls. The coating system was introduced into the market in 2002. In 2013, after more than 10 years of strenuous testing, Ecoshield was launched for permanent protection against cavitation damage for rudders. In 2014 Ecolock was introduced. This coating system is designed to protect offshore vessels for decades without the need for drydocking. The latest members of the family are Ecofix, a superior, tested and proven filler and Ecolast, a UltraViolet resistant coating that preserves its color while at the same time offering the corrosion and abrasion protection our coatings are known for.
