Eagle Bionic Antifouling
Eagle Bionic Antifouling offers an ultra smooth hull surface and displays an FIR of less than 2.5% due to unique polymers developed by Philadelphia Coatings laboratories in the USA. Low friction resistance with 2.5 – 5.5% saving on fuel cost. Eagle Bionic Antifouling is a high performance, tin-free, environmentally friendly, lowest hydrolysis category VOC with a rating of 397 g/l antifouling coating. The formulation is based on a unique organic hydrolysable polymer binder, providing long-term antifouling protection, low friction and reduced fuel consumption and carbon emissions. It can be applied as the final coat for all PhilaCoatings A/F Systems, and is suitable for static, low speed, and medium activity vessels. An antifouling coating, suitable to various requirements. It can also improve the ship’s hydrodynamic performance. Eagle Bionic Antifouling displays very good compatibility with various well known producers.
Implementation to control and to manage biofouling, can greatly assist in reducing the risk of the transfer of invasive aquatic species. Ideal solution for areas with high fouling exposure such as sea chest and offshore construction in immersed areas on static installation. The product can be tailor-made to suit various ships types considering trading routes, operation activity and low speed. Eagle Bionic Antifouling’s service period is over 90 months and can be applied directly over existing A/F.

Drying and Over-Coating Conditions
EagleBionic Antifouling should always be applied to a recommended coating system. The surface should be dry and free from contamination of any existing layers of PhilaDur line, Phila VIN/CL, link coat/sealers or various A/Fs, in order to secure good adhesion and good A/F performance. Specific recommendations and statements, should be agreed and approved by Philadelphia Coatings LLC Technical Department in writing to do so, as there is a Limit liability only for the supplied quantity and value of the A/F.
All surfaces should be clean, dry and free from contamination. High pressure or pressure with fresh water wash should be applied prior to the treatment of the application. For other surface treatments, please consult with Philadelphia Coatings LLC.
Circa 12 months when stored in a cool, dry, shaded and ventilated condition. The container/paint, must be kept sealed and away from heat and ignition.
Standard packing of 5,3 Gal. (20 Lit) pail. If other packing specifications are needed, please consult with Philadelphia Coatings LLC.

Limitation of liability
All information is given for guidance only and is subject to regional variation depending upon local climate and environmental condition. An excessive film thickness delays the final curing and creates sagging. Over coating interval will increase with the number of paint layers and the thickness of the paint film. For recommended paints at special circumstances, please consult with our Philadelphia Coatings LLC. Apply in good weather. The relative humidity must not exceed 80% temperature of the surface to be coated must be at least 3°C above the dew point. All data from the tests is obtained under lab conditions, so Philadelphia Coatings LLC won’t bear any liabilities from the condition whether the data could reflect the objective status of the actual application circumstance or not.
The information in the product manual is based on our experiences from tests and practice. For the application without our knowledge, we could only make sure that our products themselves are warranted.
