Do you love saving money and becoming more climate and environmentally friendly in the process? Then this is the project for you! This project revolves around the amazing invention of “ship paint,” specifically top coats, and how they can be made more efficient and cost-effective. This type of paint repels living organisms from the ship’s hull, reducing unnecessary friction. The less friction created, the less need there is to pay extra for fuel. This project is based on the principles of trashy chemistry, friction reduction, and the use of various carbonated metals. By recycling the metals, examining marine life, and documenting the difference in friction, I have developed an improved top coat to be used on ships to make a better future.
