Mr. Rob Taylor, Market Manager Bulk Carriers, International Paint said, “Whilst cargo holds are the important revenue earning spaces of bulk carriers and the areas that can be subject to the severest of operating environments, we understand that our customers have different needs and not all require the protection afforded by the very best technology. Intergard®7020 complements and improves our existing cargo hold coatings product range whilst adding to customer choice. The product is particularly suitable for upgrading from modified epoxy cargo hold coatings and offers improved performance with excellent value for money. We now offer a complete range of products fully capable of meeting all operator requirements in the very demanding and competitive cargo hold coatings market”.
