Ship owners and operators can now benefit from improvements in operational, cost and environmental efficiencies thanks to the latest antifouling developed by AkzoNobel, which is set to revolutionize the biocidal coatings market.
Intercept 8500 LPP is the highest-performing biocidal antifouling in the company’s International® range of marine coatings. It is designed for the deep-sea market and is the latest addition to AkzoNobel’s Intercept product range, a family of patented biocidal antifouling coatings that deliver consistent, predictable linear polishing fouling control performance for in-service periods of up to 90 months, even on high risk fouling routes.
It also comes with extended performance guarantees, proven in-service performance, and a unique polymer combination that incorporates AkzoNobel’s patented Lubyon® technology with a silyl methacrylate self-polishing copolymer.
Carl added: “We are extremely confident in the added value that Intercept 8500 LPP can bring our customers. As a tangible demonstration of this confidence, AkzoNobel is offering enhanced guarantees in its Performance Maintenance Agreements (PMA) for Intercept 8500 LPP. These include guaranteed degradation of no more than four percent and a static performance guarantee of up to 35 days, both of which offer enhanced assurance in comparison to any biocidal antifouling coatings and silicon foul release products.
Customers wishing to learn more about the performance of Intercept 8500 LPP on their vessels should contact AkzoNobel’s specially trained Intertrac Vision consultants for a full economic and environment assessment, which is undertaken prior to the coating’s application.”
