I-Tech AB is the Swedish bio-technology company behind Selektope® - the unique, barnacle-repelling active agent for marine antifouling coatings. When exposed to Selektope® at the hull surface, barnacle larvae are temporarily kept in swimming mode, through natural reception stimulation, making it impossible for them to attach. The effects of Selektope® are temporary and barnacles return to normal function within a few hours. I-Tech supplies paint manufacturers with Selektope® for inclusion in their antifouling coatings in ultra-low concentrations for superior barnacle fouling prevention, even during extended static periods.
