New Range Of Hold And Deck Coatings From International

International (Courtaulds Coatings Holdings Ltd.), a leading supplier of marine coatings, is now offering ship operators a range of specialist coatings which can significantly reduce the need for shipboard maintenance in cargo holds and on all decks.

International's hold coatings range comprises three systems which offer varying degrees of protection from a wide spectrum of cargoes.

These cargoes range from the least abrasive, such as grain and cement, through coal, limestone and timber, to highly abrasive materials such as iron ore and scrap metal.

The three new hold coating systems include: Intershield General Purpose, an abrasion resistant epoxy providing excellent long term protection; Intergard Mastic Mio, a hard wearing epoxy for application over reduced surface preparation; and Interbond Holdcoat, a surface tolerant epoxy for upgrading existing conventional systems.

In October of 1991 International introduced a new range of deck coatings, specifically aimed at ship operators' deck maintenance requirements.

The four coatings include three types of abrasion resistant systems: Intershield Proreco III, an elastomeric, ultra high-build nonskid system; Intershield Non-Skid, a high-build, non-skid epoxy; and Intershield General Purpose, an abrasion resistant epoxy for long term protection. These three coatings are complemented by the surface tolerant deck coating, Interbond Deckcoat which is a high-build epoxy for upgrading existing systems.
