The article, titled "Seaworthy Coating Solutions," includes Xiom Corp with their list of new powder coatings and thermal spray application technologies that are improving fuel efficiency and reducing the environmental impact of modern marine vessels. Xiom Corp manufactures a portable plastic powder spraying system that deposits a product that can prolong the life of many structure materials "'Copper has been used to protect boat coatings for centuries,'" president of Xiom Corp Andrew Mazzone said. "'The secret was to develop a matrix that would hold the copper and silver oxides in place and prevent them from quickly wearing away." The writer of Finishing Today Magazine goes on to write how the process works and the evident difference Xiom Corp products can make.
Another application of the Xiom coatings in the Marine Industry directly relates to fuel saving. By applying low clearance coatings inside the Kort nozzles, dramatic fuel savings have been achieved. The captain of a vessel also shared his experience with Xiom Corp coatings. "'We took the Xiom coating and sprayed it onto the nozzle and got the gap down to ¼ inch,'" said Captain Charlie Quinn. "'We saved 15-20% on fuel and got more thrust with less rpm, as well as less wear and tear on the engine shaft for the boat's first trip. Because we'll be using less fuel, we'll be able to travel farther and spend more time out of the water.'"
