GRD Franmarine Underwater Services has successfully completed International Paint’s Intersleek underwater cleaning panel tests using the following equipment and set-up parameters for removal of loosely adhered hard fouling, slime and weed. Fouled panels coated with the Intersleek scheme were immersed for 4 months before cleaning using the Envirocart. No damage that could be attributed to the cleaning equipment could be seen either visually or under microscopic analysis.
International Paint recommends that the vessel operator using this cleaning company checks that the correct equipment and suitably trained personnel are provided.
