Primary Product / Service:
AkzoNobel’s marine coatings business, International, has worked hard to create the first approved carbon credit methodology in the marine industry. Through this, vessel operators can be rewarded for investment in cleaner technologies through the generation of carbon credits. To qualify, a vessel needs to be converted from biocidal antifouling to International’s Intersleek during routine drydocking. Additionally, AkzoNobel’s marine coatings business, International has introduced Interline 9001, a new Bimodal Epoxy coating for the cargo tanks of chemical tankers. With enhanced cargo resistance, zero absorption for many cargoes and fewer cycling restrictions, Interline 9001 simplifies the carriage of a wide range of liquid cargoes, optimizing vessel earning potential. Interline 9001 is designed therefore to deliver greater efficiency and flexibility in the operation of chemical tankers, easily switching from one cargo to the next with minimal downtime.
 
The Case:
Owned by AkzoNobel, International Paint is among the world’s largest coatings suppliers. Additionally, International paint holds a leading share in the marine coatings market.
