Increasingly, the demand for tighter cargo specifications and restriction of aggressive tank cleaning methods puts greater pressures on vessel owners and crew members.
Around 70% of cargo tanks in the global fleet are constructed from mild steel. These tanks need to be protected from corrosion and from the carriage of often aggressive cargoes. Coatings play a critical role in tank protection.
The ability to switch from one cargo to the next easily, with minimal downtime and tank cleaning, is key to the successful and profitable operation of chemical and product tankers.
