New Rust Inhibitor Introduced By Farboil —Literature Available

A new, rust-preventive marine ballast tank coating that is said to provide economical and longlasting protection to ferrous metals in a saltwater environment has been introduced by Farboil Company of Baltimore.

The new coating, named Ballastite 400®, is non-toxic and does not contaminate ballast water. It is semipermanent and can be applied by spray to ballast tanks and voids during new ship construction or drydock periods. The coating adheres to millscale and is thermally stable, fire resistant, electrically insulating, and selfhealing.

It does not interfere with welding.

Tanks coated with Ballastite 400 are easily maintained by periodic use of Ballastite 300®, a flotation type coating that ensures continuous coverage and protection of the metal tank surfaces.
