Redwood Plastics is proud distributor of Wearlon Coatings. There are many varieties available to prevent graffiti, reduce friction on machinery in the pulp and paper and waste water industries, as well as coatings to reduce drag on boats and prevent galvanic corrosion.

One variety is Wearlon Super F1-M Marine Topcoat

Wearlon, a Foul-Release Coating System, is revolutionizing the market for salt and fresh water hull coatings. Wearlon offers all the advantages of foul-release, low energy surface coatings and solves the durability problems of other soft systems.

Wearlon is environmentally friendly, waterborne, low VOC (volatile organic compound), non-leaching, non-toxic, doesn’t kill or harm any marine organisms and doesn’t rely on the principle of eluding silicon oils to retain its effectiveness.

Wearlon is tough and durable. Its unique silicone-epoxy chemistry endows the product with extremely good adhesion and tensile strength. Wearlon adheres readily to most barrier and primer coats. Its elastic modulus enables it to deform and resist impact damage. Inherent lubricity improves fuel economy, reduces engine strain and increases speed.

Wearlon’s foul release properties result in low bio-fouling adhesion from Zebra mussels, quagga mussels, barnacles, tube worms and all bacterial and algal biofilms. Foul-Release means easy clean! Wearlon coated surfaces become self cleaning if the craft is used regularly at reasonable speed.

Two component, water base, room temperature cure, grafted silicone epoxy with increased silicone and boosted hardness that enhances the non-stick, easy clean biofouling properties. Meets EPA, USDA and FDA 21 CFR 175.300 Requirements.
