SPC Coatings Combat Rising Fuel Costs- Literature Available

Following the Arab oil embargo in late 1973, International Paint Company rose to the challenge of combating rising fuel costs with the introduction of the Intersmooth SPC (self-polishing copolymer) antifouling coating system.

The newest member of this family of coatings is Intersmooth SPC-20. It polishes more slowly than the other products and, in combination with an Intersmooth SPC-4 or SPC-9 system, allows extended in-service periods beyond 30 months.

Other members of the Intersmooth SPC family include SPC- 4, which has the most extensive in-service record, and SPC-9, specially designed for more severe fouling environments and lowactivity vessels. The latter has been used widely for ships operating from Japan, where fouling is severe, and for ships that operate with repeated idle periods.
