Delftex®  DelphySkin® Low friction technologies

Studies

Marintek

in Norway is specialised on testing water vehicles. In April 2016 they compared 9 paintings. Our paint was Seajet 012 Universal Primer in version A (original) plate 5 and B plate 6 changed with our Delftex® technology. The compare at 5m/s water speed shows the lower towing force (~87 N down to ~85 N) .

Compare to all other paints

our plate 5 and plate 6 (DELPHYSKIN®) was compared at 5 m/s to 7 other. In the middle row of the graph you can see that plate 6 (brown dots) has the lowest friction of all paintings.
2.3% less friction
Delphyskin® PAINT
Test results SVA Potsdam A boat paint (original vs. DelphySkin® modified) was tested for the reduction the frictional resistance in the water flow channel
On the basis of the test results, the reduction in resistance and Fuel savings determined: - Sliding boat resistance reduction and fuel saving of 2.5%. - Tanker Resistance reduction and fuel saving of 7.8 - Aircraft* Reduced drag and fuel savings of 1.1 % (if 60% of the surface are painted with the DSK-modified paint) * extrapolation to the medium air (boat paint)
