Military featured products
A Low Solar Absorbing, high solids, extended durability, epoxy non-skid deck coating. Developed to meet the requirements of MIL-PRF-24667C Types I, II and V, Composition G.
A two pack, easy clean, low gloss polysiloxane finish, providing superior aesthetic performance while demonstrating excellent color and gloss retention. It contains Low Solar Absorption (LSA) pigmentation which reflects infrared radiation from the sun and contributes to a reduction in temperature of internal vessel areas and therefore reducing the amount of fuel required for AC units and increasing cruising range. Interfine 5897 is qualified to meet the requirements of APAS0501 Type II, Class 1.
Peelable temporary coating used to protect surfaces. It has excellent application properties and is fast drying. It is surface tolerant and can be used to protect glass.
Full technical support services available with dedicated subject matter experts throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Full technical service facilities throughout Australia relating to marine coatings and anti-fouling coatings. All products are made to the highest quality in state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Australia, capacity in excess of 7.5 million litres per year.
We're committed to partnering with customers to lead the marine industry with innovative technology and digital tools that extend asset life, reduce maintenance costs, and improve fuel efficiency.
Our Intertrac Vision software package was built on big data from research studies with the University College of London, Marin Institute, and decades of coatings performance data. The digital tool predicts hull performance based on various inputs such as trading pattern, speed, and coating type. It is the industry's first consultancy tool that provides ship operators with predictions on the fuel and CO2 savings potential of fouling control coatings.
