Advanced Polymer Coatings has introduced GuardLine LTC, an ambient-cure coating designed for application versatility and chemical resistance.

GuardLine LTC (“Low Temperature Cure”) cures in the range of +25°C/+77°F. APC says the coating can avoid the additional cost and time of a high-temperature forced-hot air heat cure, which is necessary for the high chemical resistance of the company’s MarineLine 784 system used for chemical tankers and their more hazardous cargoes.

Facilitating Easy Cargo Switching

“This new coating will have a major impact in the product tanker market,” said APC Chairman Donald J. Keehan, “especially those tanker owners who trade in the clean petroleum products, bio-fuels, vegetable and edible oils, and dirty petroleum products markets.”

Advanced Polymer Coatings has introduced GuardLine LTC, an ambient-cure coating designed for application versatility and chemical resistance.

“Some of these areas are emerging and growing considerably. Shipowners need a versatile and protective tank coating capable of transporting these corrosive products and then easily switching between them."

Features and Characteristics

GuardLine “is virtually absorbent-free with low surface energy, so less cleaning chemicals are needed, and less slops are created,” says APC, of Avon, OH.

The coating also offers “fewer limitations than conventional coatings and stainless steel tanks,” according to the manufacturer. “This gives shipowners the opportunity to carry a wide range of profitable cargoes without worrying about the previous cargo residue contaminating the next cargo.”
