Comment | More

Global paints and coatings company AkzoNobel (Amsterdam) recently expanded its ship maintenance line with the launch of a new multi-purpose one-pack primer.


According to AkzoNobel, the primer is compatible with many of the other marine coatings and topcoat options produced by the company, and was formulated with a crew's needs in mind.

Interstores Alkyd Primer is the latest addition to the Interstores product line. According to AkzoNobel, the primer is compatible with many of the other marine coatings and topcoat options produced by the company, and was formulated with a crew's needs in mind. The product is also designed for brush and roller application, and is suitable for all substrates above the waterline.

Onboard Maintenance

"Delivering globally accessible and easy-to-use onboard primers and top coats is essential for productive onboard maintenance, especially in an industry where seafarers face increasing time and cost pressures,” Oscar Wezenbeek, managing director for AkzoNobel's Marine Coatings unit, said in a statement.

Wezenbeek went on to add that the addition of the alkyd primer fully equipped the Interstores product line to meet all of the onboard maintenance requirements. “Combined with carefully selected global port availability, we can effectively support ship operators to pick up the products in the most cost-effective locations with minimal lead time."

The Interstores range as a whole is compatible with all existing coating systems from AkzoNobel, and has been sold to more than 3,000 vessels since its launch. According to AkzoNobel, the range consists of: Interstores Alkyd (top coat), Interstores Polyurethane (top coat), Interstores Epoxy Primer and now Interstores Alkyd Primer.
