Vessels and their coatings are exposed to extreme conditions when in-service, which not only demands coatings know-how spanning 140 years, but in some instances it also calls for the excellent abrasion resistance of coatings such as Intershield 163 Inerta 160, combined with over 30 years of outstanding, in-service ice resistance. An offering unique to our International brand of marine coatings.
These conditions result in some of the most complex challenges for coatings on vessels, particularly in cargo holds which need to resist a wide range of abrasive materials and mechanisms. On walkways, vehicle decks or landing areas which are commonly subjected to extreme repetitive action. Or on underwater hulls which could be exposed to sea ice.
Longevity and lifetime cost is key – that’s why our International range of marine coatings are not only designed to protect and preserve your asset against these challenges but to also keep your assets in operation for longer, maximizing the integrity of your vessel.
