Be sure to join us for Marine Coatings Webinar Week 

Hull coatings. Surface preparation. Vessel biofouling.

Beginning Tuesday 14 September, we will be holding a series of daily webinars focused on hull coatings, surface preparation and managing vessel biofouling during layup, idling or at slower speeds. Each webinar is meticulously researched and speaks to a key industry challenge, headache or opportunity. The webinars are designed to strike the right balance between transmission of key information and interaction with the expert panel assembled. Those who register will also receive copies of webinar materials post event.
