Micanti Antifouling, antifouling reinvented

What we are looking for:
The company is interested to get in contact with end-users that are willing to try out the innovative antifouling product. The company already has commercial applications on workboats and would like to expand their scope to larger vessels.
The company is also interested in partners to represent them throughout Europe.
The specific area(s) of activity of the partner(s): Aquaculture, Shipping, Offshore, Maritime Infrastructure

What we offer:
A patented antifouling technology where fibres are applied as fouling repellent by decreasing the available surface for settlement. This non-toxic antifouling is already used in aquaculture and shipping but has also great potential in offshore and maritime infrastructure.

The antifouling technology consists of specific short fibres (thorns) that can be applied on various surfaces like nets, foils and woven materials. For applications on large surfaces like ship hulls, the fibres are produced on self-adhesive films.

The technology can be utilized in the following areas:
• Aquaculture: already on the market;
• Shipping: sold to ship owners worldwide;
• Offshore: basic test done;
• Maritime Infrastructure: basis test done.

  • Ships (including repairs and refits)
  • Shipbuilding materials
  • Ship fittings and equipment
  • Marine/Offshore technology
Collaboration sought:
  • Research cooperation
  • Technical cooperation
  • Joint Venture Agreement
  • Subcontract/outsourcing activity
