International Paint Launches Intergard®7020 Pure Epoxy Coating for All Bulk Carrier Types

Published on 2011-06-10. Author : SpecialChem

International Paint has introduced Intergard®7020, a new dedicated cargo hold coating for all bulk carrier types.

Specially designed for operators who don't need or cannot justify the investment in the highest performing cargo hold coatings, Intergard®7020 offers good abrasion resistance and long term corrosion protection combined with many of the features normally associated with more expensive products.

Available in the popular and practical red and grey colors, Intergard®7020 is an aluminium containing, low VOC, pure epoxy coating which can be applied to surfaces prepared to a minimum of Sa2. Applicable at temperatures between -50C and +350C the product has a smooth, glossy, easy clean surface, is grain certified and is ready to carry even the harshest cargoes after only 10 days cure.

Mr. Rob Taylor, Market Manager Bulk Carriers, International Paint said, "Whilst cargo holds are the important revenue earning spaces of bulk carriers and the areas that can be subject to the severest of operating environments, we understand that our customers have different needs and not all require the protection afforded by the very best technology. Intergard®7020 complements and improves our existing cargo hold coatings product range whilst adding to customer choice.

The product is particularly suitable for upgrading from modified epoxy cargo hold coatings and offers improved performance with excellent value for money. We now offer a complete range of products fully capable of meeting all operator requirements in the very demanding and competitive cargo hold coatings market".

The product range now includes Interbond®201, a surface tolerant, modified epoxy, cargo hold coating with a long in service history, new Intergard®7020, Intershield®803, an abrasion resistant pure epoxy coating with an excellent track record and Intershield®803Plus, our toughest ever cargo hold coating with exceptional impact and abrasion resistance, which was introduced last year.
