Carboline has launched a new insulative coating developed for marine use. The water-based epoxy insulative coating, Carbotherm 551, was designed to present an alternative to acrylic-based insulative coatings, the company says.

Carboline's new water-based epoxy insulative coating is said to be tough enough to handle foot traffic and marine conditions.

The epoxy’s chemical cure creates a surface that’s tough enough to handle foot traffic and marine conditions, according to a Carboline. To create a safer walking surface for personnel, the coating may be applied in combination with a non-skid aggregate, it adds.

Possible industrial and marine applications for Carbotherm 551 include barge covers and decks, as well as roofs of marine vessel wheelhouses, where the company claims it would help prevent heat buildup from the sun or maintain heat under cold conditions, the company says.

Additionally, the company says when transporting low vapor pressure cargoes, the coating can help owners reduce fugitive emissions and minimize product losses.
