PPG SIGMA NEXEON series

SIGMA NEXEON

Instant low friction – future proof

PPG SIGMA NEXEON – fuel savings from day one

The PPG SIGMA NEXEON antifouling range is based on linear, self-polishing binder technology and instant low-friction, high-performance/low-roughness active ingredients. This provides up to 25% lower roughness at application and, therefore, contributes to about 2.5% fuel savings right from day one when the ship starts sailing. The high-performance active ingredients, together with the linear self-polishing binder, maintain premium antifouling performance and hull smoothness; therefore, fuel savings are delivered throughout the service period.

PPG SIGMA NEXEON – excellent cosmetics

As well as offering fuel efficiency (brains), ‘beauty’ also matters in today’s shipping market to attract business. The PPG SIGMA NEXEON range offers ‘as new’ cosmetics at new-build delivery that will last while in service on the immersed areas (clean hull) and the atmospheric areas (color stability). Due to the absence of copper, PPG SIGMA NEXEON coatings do not have the ‘whitening’ effect that is common with copper-containing products.

PPG SIGMA NEXEON – Lowering environmental impact

PPG SIGMA NEXEON coatings have been designed to keep the vessel’s underwater hull free from fouling and discoloration while stationary in seawater so as to minimize cleaning costs before delivery to the field. This will also help to reduce the effect on the environment without compromising operational efficiency. The absence of copper in the coatings also makes application smoother, thereby, delivering better fuel efficiency from the outset.
