New Program Offers Customized Help

THURSDAY, AUGUST 21, 2014


International Paint has introduced Interplan, a customized maintenance painting service that offers a flexible coating survey and maintenance service package.

Interplan reports combine photographic and on-site data for a full condition report, according to the company.

The mobile-enabled maintenance and repair program offers four tiers of service: mobile, basic, advanced and specialist.

International Paint is a brand in AkzoNobel's Marine and Protective Coatings business unit.

Four Plans

The mobile tier includes a daily reporting tool that can be used during new construction or when carrying out maintenance and repair work.

The basic plan offers a full site corrosion survey with a photographic report highlighting areas that require attention.

The advanced plan includes the photographic survey plus a comprehensive site survey. A risk-based inspection approach will be used to outline potential future failures and provide detailed plans of remedial work, according to the company.

Interplan has four tiers: mobile, basic, advanced and specialist.

For the specialist tier, technology is used to give a "state-of-the-art" view of corrosion. A tablet-based program, developed in conjunction with PK Technologies, provides an oversight of where corrosion concerns are located.

Benefits

Benefits of the service include:

  • A network of technical service representatives and maintenance specialists;
  • A single point of contact to work through complex maintenance programs;
  • An internal program to ensure compliance with regulatory standards; and
  • A long-term plan for a cost-effective maintenance budget over the asset's life cycle.

"By offering this technology, we can potentially help to reduce plant shutdown time and, in turn, reduce costs, as well as helping customers to better plan the spending of their maintenance budgets," said Ian Walker, director of AkzoNobel's Protective Coatings business.
