Wednesday, April 16, 2008

PPG Industries’ protective and marine coatings (PMC) business announced that SigmaPrime 700 and SigmaPrime 700 LT coatings by PPG will be applied to a vessel being built in for Chandris Hellas that will be the first built in full compliance with the International Maritime Organization (IMO) ballast tank coatings regulation titled Performance Standard for Protective Coatings (PSPC).
SigmaPrime 700 and SigmaPrime 700 LT coatings have received Lloyd’s Register type approval certificates in accordance with the IMO PSPC. The standard calls for shipyards, coatings manufacturers, ship owners and classification societies to ensure that protective coating systems in dedicated sea water ballast tanks are specified, qualified, applied and inspected throughout the ship's construction.
