Biocide Free Self-polishing Coating
Keeping ships clean. Keeping our oceans clean.
These concepts sound mutually compatible, but it's only through a deep understanding of marine life that Nippon Paint Marine have been able to find the way ahead.
We use precise coating engineering to deliver a surface that is entirely free of biocides. It's taken many years but results have proved the technology.
