SIGMA SAILADVANCE™ RX and GX

Advanced low friction, self-lubricating antifoulings

SIGMA SAILADVANCE products have been developed with the primary aim of reducing energy and therefore lowering total operational costs. These products cover a wide range of operational conditions and vessel types and are based upon an extensive range of high-performance technologies. Benefits offered in this product range include fuel savings, idle time tolerance, linear self-polishing and low friction.

SIGMA SAILADVANCE RX and GX coatings are the latest additions to the range. These antifoulings are based on self release binder technology build on the CSP (controlled surface active polymers) inside. This offers a self-lubrication and self-release mechanism resulting in low friction, idle time tolerance and fuel savings.

Suitable for application at new-build and dry dockings, the products are designed for all vessel types and speeds, and are particularly effective for slow-steaming because of the engineered oil binder composition. SIGMA SAILADVANCE RX and GX coatings benefit from high-volume solids (up to 59%) for efficient application and evolve in a linear polishing and consistent biocide release for predictable performance for up to 90 months. The application of these coatings offers extended idle days through the release effect of engineered oils that create a slippery surface.
