Intersleek makes newbuilding debut in Korea

Published October 14, 2005
International Paint has announced the
successful completion of the first
Intersleek foul release coating newbuilding
application in Korea. Pioneered
by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine
Engineering (DSME) in South Korea
and International Paint Korea (IPK),
the sides, rudder and propeller of a
145,700 cbm LNG Carrier scheduled for
delivery in October 2005, were successfully
coated with Intersleek during the
vessel’s pre-delivery drydocking.
Prior to the docking, and after a
period of technical consultation, IPK
hosted several Intersleek training
classes to fully prepare the shipyard,
contractors and personnel for this first
application. A small number of guest
dignitaries including naval architecture
professors from Busan National
University were also present.
“The success of this application is seen
as a potential turning point in overcoming
the practical difficulties in applying
silicone-based coatings at newbuilding.
Hopefully this application will herald a
new era in shipbuilding and coating
methodology,” said OS Kang, general
manager, Marine and Protective
Coatings, IPK. “Two further LNGs for
Maran Gas are to be coated with
Intersleek at pre-delivery docking in
DSME and, if similarly successful, will
ease the way for the growing number of
newbuilding owners wanting this very
special coating system installed at newbuilding,”
he added.
