FoulX Performance

Bio-growth resistance with FoulX showed that after just 24 hours of saltwater immersion, FoulX had an immediate effect on the attachment and formation of biofouling, versus carbon steel substrate, which showed visible signs of corrosion as well as significant cyanobacteria growth. FoulX prevented clear formation of a micro fouling layer. Even elimination of micro fouling alone can easily improve the fuel efficiency of a vessel by greater than 18% (Lewin, 1984).
