Cargo Holds

A tough cargo hold coating protects your holds from hard or chemically aggressive cargoes to lower your maintenance costs and reduce cleaning times between loads.

Bulk carriers transport hundreds of different dry cargoes, from steel and coal to salt and everything in between. This means your cargo hold coating has to deliver reliable corrosion protection and excellent thermal, mechanical and impact resistance.

A good cargo hold coating should also be easy to clean between cargoes, so you can reduce the time it takes to get your vessel ready for its next load.
