Marathon IQ2 – your choice for polar operations

Polar regions offer the most extreme, harsh conditions, resulting in severe, continuous impact and abrasion on vessels operating in these waters. Standard epoxy coatings and ice coatings build up a roughness reducing hydrodynamic efficiency. Marathon IQ2 offers not just unsurpassed levels of smoothness but toughness to ensure the smoothness lasts. The result is hydrodynamic efficiency, unequalled anywhere in the world.

Marathon IQ2 can deliver approximately 4.5% improvement in hydrodynamic efficiency beyond current ice coatings on the market.
