New build

Coatings that provide maximum corrosion protection

As one of the largest suppliers of coating solutions to new-build shipyards, we are only too aware how vitally important it is to make the right coating and application choice for new vessels. Choosing well will ensure that the vessel gets the maximum corrosion protection, thus improving its efficiency and helping to reduce onboard maintenance costs.

The building of a new vessel involves a large investment for the owner and is a labor-intensive process for the shipyard. Coatings form a relatively small part of the total vessel cost, yet they are a key factor in subsequent asset protection, safe operation and maximizing revenues when the vessel is in service.

PPG products for the new-build market are designed to cope with the most demanding service conditions and are formulated to allow efficient application in today's new-building shipyards. These coating systems provide both productivity benefits for the shipyard and also superior performance for the owner.
