Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings launched SeaGuard, an app that provides users with protective coating recommendations for VLCC/VLBCs, chemical tankers and OSV/PSVs. The app debuted on October 9 at The International WorkBoat Show in New Orleans. The app is optimized for both iOS and Android.

The app is designed to help port engineers and fleet managers access accurate and up-to-date coatings information via mobile technology. It’s a convenient alternative to bulky binders stuffed with outdated product data sheets. If a new product is introduced, or an old product is no longer manufactured, SeaGuard has the updated information.

SeaGuard’s home screen allows the user to select the type of vessel in need of coating. Once the vessel has been selected, labeled areas of the vessel appear. SeaGuard recommends the coating system for each area.

The recommendation includes both a primary and alternative system, providing information on the generic coating system (primer, intermediate and top coat), stripe coat (if needed), dry film thickness for each coat and total mils for the system. Surface preparation and application equipment tips are included in the recommendation. Clicking on a product name brings up a detailed product data sheet.

“SeaGuard provides our customers with stem-to-stern coating solutions,” says Tim McDonough, Sherwin-Williams regional marine market segment director. “Port Engineers and fleet managers alike will have, at their fingertips, the latest, detailed Sherwin-Williams' coating specifications to meet their specific and unique need – anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.”

The SeaGuard app evolved from Sherwin-Williams’ long association with its marine customers and deep familiarity with their specific needs. It demonstrates Sherwin-Williams’ commitment to service and logistical support for its customers. No other coatings manufacturer has an app designed to walk technicians through the coatings selection process on the go.
