What is our mission?

We want to help create a better world

F2 technology has been created by Ocean Coatings which is a designer and manufacturer of marine and offshore protective coatings, especially formulated to meet professional performance standards.

The Ocean Coatings / F2 team is committed to Quality, Performance and Outstanding service. We strive to be the best by using state of the art research & development techniques, production techniques and quality control combined with attention to detail at every level of the operation.

The Problem

Marine life grows on any object that spends more than a few days on or under the water. It occurs on 70% of the Earth's surface. 


Marine Fouling:

  • Requires expensive and never ending maintenance.
  • Is relentlessly persistent and if uncontrolled can lead to structural damage.
  • On boat hulls, it increases drag reducing efficiency and speed.
  • Significantly increases fuel costs leading to higher greenhouse gas emissions.

The Solution

Marine life perceive F2 as a liquid and find it difficult to adhere.


F2 is environmentally responsible and eradicates the industrial-scale poisoning of oceans and marine ecosystems. It also:

  • Reduces fuel cost.
  • Reduces annual maintenance cost.
  • Reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 55%*.

* ”Impact of Ships Biofouling on Greenhouse gas emissions” by The International Maritime Organisation.

We are dedicated to protecting the marine ecosystem by developing products that control marine fouling but which are absolutely safe for the environment.

Protect the marine environment

Ocean Coatings has taken years to develop F2 marine paint protection technology which incorporates several silicone polymer combinations and unique components which form a surface that ‘acts like water’ and marine life perceive the underwater surface as a liquid and do not adhere.

F2 solution to antifouling is a new perspective on marine coating performance with a low impact on marine ecosystems, eradicating the industrial scale poisoning of Oceans.
