WHAT IS SELEKTOPE®?

Selektope® is an ingredient for marine coatings that offers superior hard fouling prevention performance for ships. Offering a first of its kind bio-repellent mode of action, Selektope® protects ship hulls from barnacle settlement even under static conditions for extended periods. Selektope®, is an organic, non-metal compound that delivers unrivaled efficacy at minute concentrations of 0.1% in a marine coating’s overall constituency.

When present in a marine coating product, Selektope® temporarily stimulates the barnacle cyprid larvae’s octopamine receptor, keeping the larvae in swimming mode rendering them unable to attach to the hull (and other structures). The effects of this neurological scrambling are temporary, with the larvae returning to normal functional capacity shortly after encountering Selektope® on the ship’s hull.
