Unlike other anti-fouling paints, Peptide Technologies’ fouling prevention coatings are the only ones to receive a non-hazardous and non-toxic rating by Risk Management Technology ChemAlert, Australia – a government-sanctioned certification.
Peptide Technologies represents more than 35 cumulative years of peptide research, development and application. Peptides are susceptible to degradation by proteases in the natural environment. Our fouling prevention peptides are incorporated into a coating formulation that prevents their degradation while doing their "job" until they are sloughed off as the coating wears down. Once released into the aquatic environment, they are not only non-toxic but are rapidly degraded by micro-organisms and pose no environmental threat.
