Nowadays, graphene-based nano composites are one of the most active research ﬁelds because it sensitively improves the properties of diﬀerent polymers. Two of the most signiﬁcant problems in naval and oﬀshore sectors are corrosion and adherence of marine life which aﬀects systems performance, making necessary costly labours of maintenance. Graphene is capable of adopting superhydrophobic behaviour and it has antibacterial properties, allowing the design of nanotech-based coatings with better performance in marine environments than the best naval paints available.
Graphene is an exceptional addition to marine coatings due to its remarkable mechanical properties derived from its single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a consistent repeating pattern. This unique structure grants it exceptional strength while maintaining high flexibility and lightness.
Moreover, in the realm of marine applications, when integrated into hull coatings, graphene exhibits a remarkable level of corrosion resistance owing to its inherent chemical inertness.
This advantage isn't solely advantageous for shipping companies seeking to minimize vessel wear and tear. By preventing paint from peeling off hulls, it also plays a vital role in safeguarding marine ecosystems from potential exposure to harmful substances.
Furthermore, in addition to graphene's anti-fouling properties, a synergy of combined attributes can be achieved.
