The paint manufacturer International Marine has developed a hull coating that does not require the removal of existing coatings prior to the application of the company’s Intersleek system.
Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) has announced that its 38,000-class bulk carrier now under construction at the Minaminippon Shipbuilding will be the first ship to use International’s new silicon-based anti-fouling paint.
International Paint has announced the introduction of two new antifouling hull coatings, known as Intersmooth 7465Si SPC and Interswift 6900Si silyl acrylate.

Investment in hull coatings is on the rise, and manufacturers are responding with a range of new performance promises, writes Wendy Laursen
A study commissioned by International Paint suggests that some 87% of ship operators would welcome a common methodology to measure fuel consumption, and hence the effectiveness of so-called low-resistance hull coatings.
International Paints has announced a new software system, claimed to be the first allowing ship owners and operators to assess and predict the risk of hull fouling dependent on the routes their vessels are transiting.
A pioneering venture from International Paints promises to provide an additional revenue source in the current difficult shipping market, and offers potential to smash the barriers that make investment in environmental technology difficult thanks to the owner/charterer relationship.
Trevor Solomon, Intersleek Business Manager, at International, Akzo Nobel’s marine coatings business discusses the company’s carbon credits offer with Wendy Laursen.
