Water / Waste Water

Irrigation Canals, Channels, Tunnels, Transmission Piping, Waste Waste Clarifier

It is well known that fouling by mussels, barnacles and other organisms which attach to immersed surfaces of Irrigation Canals, Channels, Tunnels, Transmission Piping, Trash Racks is an expensive and challenging problem.

Developing a coating that resists fouling, but does not pose a risk to the environment or human health is very challenging.

FUJIFILM Hunt Smart Surfaces, LLC. now offers its DUPLEX fouling release system technology as an effective and environmentally friendly alternative. The DUPLEX non-toxic solution is a U.S. Navy patented durable system that resists mechanical damage silicone-based coating that causes marine organisms to release from surfaces. The longevity of the DUPLEX system is 5 years or greater depending on use. Our DUPLEX solution will work toward saving the environment, while at the same time save your budget.

Not all fouling release technologies are created equal. Conventional systems can be vulnerable to wear and tear from debris in water or from contact with other structures. The DUPLEX system is proven to be more durable than other fouling release coatings, providing steady long-term performance. In addition, our DUPLEX Tie Coat formula incorporates nano technology for unique synergy of four layers - two epoxy anti-corrosion layers and a tough protective silicone topcoat, all of which are effectively interlocked by a unique thermoplastic elastomeric tie coat layer that forms a molecular covalent bond. The synergy among the four coats creates superior adhesion. Specific Dry Film Thickness (DFT) of the system layers are as follows:

  • One layer of anti-corrosive Epoxy (6 mils DFT).
  • One layer of anti-corrosive Epoxy (6 mils DFT).
  • One layer of Tie Coat (6 mils DFT).
  • One layer of Surface Coat (6 mils DFT), which incorporates our proprietary Silicone Oil.

This patented solution unites durability, longevity, clean-ability, and cost-effectiveness in a single product.

Our DUPLEX system offers:

  • Non-toxic, environmentally friendly
  • Reduces Friction Loss
  • Increases Water Flow Rate Performance
  • Eliminates Significant Operating & Maintenance Expenses
  • Efficient release range
  • Decreased Maintenance Costs & Downtime
  • Easy to apply

Our technology

The DUPLEX tie formula incorporating nano technology is a unique synergy of three layers. An epoxy anti-corrosion layer and a tough, protective silicone topcoat are effectively interlocked by a unique thermoplastic elastomeric tie formula.

The synergy among the three layers creates superior adhesion and durability. This technology boosts the toughness and adhesion properties of the epoxy and silicone coatings, creating a new system more durable than the competition.

Super tough silicone surface

Not all fouling release technologies are created equal. Conventional systems can be vulnerable to wear and tear from debris in the water or from contact with other structures. Our DUPLEX System, however, has proven to be more durable than other fouling release coatings. The DUPLEX System's "tough" surface provides steady long-term performance long after "softer" systems' performance has degraded.

A solution the world can live with

The Smart Surfaces DUPLEX fouling release coating system provides a remarkably effective, nontoxic alternative to conventional antifouling technologies. And the need has never been more urgent for the environment, as well as for operational efficiency.

This U.S. Navy patented solution unites durability, longevity, clean-ability, repair-ability and cost-effectiveness in a single product. The DUPLEX system provides superior biofouling and environmental protection.

New DUPLEX Fouling Release Coating System Works Without Toxins

Our nontoxic solution is a patented, resilient, effective silicone-based coating. The Smart Surfaces DUPLEX fouling release technology causes organisms to be released from surfaces at industry leading slow speeds and light water pressure – a solution that works with Nature, not against it.
