Surface roughness test data:

Coating surface roughness impacts fuel consumption, CO2 (GHG) emissions, Vessel speed and to a degree fouling.  A general rule of thumb in Commercial vessel naval architecture and design is that for each twenty microns difference of coating surface roughness will impact fuel consumption by 1%.  Typical conventional antifouling coatings are 120 – 150 microns roughness. Several products in the market can achieve 90 microns in ideal conditions.”  As detailed below the SEA-SPEED V 10 X ULTRA surface roughness is a fraction of 1 micron.  (one micron is 1 one-thousandth of a millimeter)
