Farboil Introduces STA-CLEAN Coating

An extra-strong a n t i f o u l i ng coating, specifically developed to provide long-term protection to commercial ships in tropical waters, has been introduced by Farboil Company.

Trade named STA-CLEAN, the new coating is formulated with an organic antifouling compound that synergizes the inorganic portion in order to extend the protection time between drydockings. It is based on an isoprene resinated polymer, and has been extensively tested in Florida for over two years.

STA-CLEAN can be applied by spray, brush or roller, although airless spray is the suggested method. At 77°F and 50 percent relative humidity, the coating dries to the touch in one hour, and can be recoated after four hours.

Farboil Company, an operating unit of Beatrice Chemical, division of Beatrice Foods Co., produces and markets worldwide a full line of protective coatings for deepwater and inland waterways vessels.
