Fendercare Marine is now supplying Thorn-D, the modern nontoxic fouling defence technology created by Micanti.

This state-of-the-art product is a physical barrier against marine growth with the ability to last at least five years. Thorn-D has an innovative design that utilises specific short fibres with fully environmentally friendly material that prevents the settlement of species such as barnacles and mussels.

Marine growth can often become detrimental towards loss of fuel and speed of vessels, Micanti has ensured that Thron-D will maintain its first-class performance and provide fuel savings and consistent speed due to its physical barrier. This has been tested worldwide in a variety of environments on static and moving objects, proving to be a genuine asset to any vessel.
