Sea Hawk logoCLEARWATER, Fla. – Jan. 20, 2015 – Today Sea Hawk Paints, the world’s leading premium nautical coating provider, announced the completion of a seminar for their national distribution partner Land ‘N’ Sea Distributing, Inc. Sea Hawk CEO, Erik Norrie, delivered a four-session training seminar for the Land ‘N’ Sea sales team during their recent “Growing Together As One” national sales meeting. Norrie relayed the implementation of sales control to 0 percent imposed on BASF Irgarol®1051 US, an algaecide specifically designed for marine antifouling coatings, as detailed in a letter to its customers by its maker, and pointed out possible disruption to certain dual biocides coating products in the market as a result. Norrie then presented the Sea Hawk Paints solution to the problem, which is the current dual biocide antifouling boat paint Biocop TF™, that can be used individually or blended with several other Sea Hawk single biocide products to create a variety of application specific dual biocide bottom paint solutions. Explaining Sea Hawk’s diverse line, much of which is not Irgarol dependent, Norrie showed Land ‘N’ Sea’s seasoned sales team an always-available assortment for providing their customers with dual biocide boat bottom paint protection for virtually any marine condition at a variety of competitive price points.
