WHAT IS SELEKTOPE®?

Selektope® is an active agent for marine coatings that repels barnacles from ships, even under static conditions for extended periods. When present in a marine antifouling coating, Selektope® stimulates the approaching barnacle larvae’s octopamine receptor, keeping the larvae in swimming mode with temporary, non-fatal effect.
