The technology developed by AIMPLAS will consist in a polyurethane coating based on nanoparticles for strategically maritime components. Properties as antifouling and anticorrosion capacity will be desired in order to ensure a suitable useful life in a marine medium where action by chlorides, algae and other organisms are critical.

For that purpose a synergistic effect from different nanoparticles will be consider pursuing also a hydrophobic surface.
