Anti fouling/corrosion surfaces
Biofouling is the accumulation of microorganisms on some surfaces. Biofouling is a common problem on the various environment including marine, human body etc. For instance, biofouling on hulls can increase both the hydrodynamic volume of a vessels and the frictional effects leading to increased drag of up to 60%. At that same time, biofouling is very deeply related to corrosion performance. Over time, the corrosion on surface is accumulating biofouling because of damaged surface.
In order to develop anti-fouling and anti-corrosion performance, MEL applies varies surface modification technique on metal base. It can be controlled to wetting characteristics and improved the anti-fouling and anti-corrosion performance.
