International Conference on Marine Coatings


Venue: London, UK

The marine environment has always been a harsh and unforgiving environment for both anti-fouling and corrosion control coatings systems. In the current economic climate the industry faces an even greater need to improve the performance and cost effectiveness of coatings systems. The industry is now being affected by more and more legislation on safety and environmental protection issues.

The ballast tank Performance Standards for Protective Coatings (PSPC) is now incorporated in SOLAS and standards for oil tank coatings are being finalized. These regulations also require the shipowners to maintain a Coating Technical Files (CTF) to record details of the coating system and its maintenance. This file will be subject to regular audit by Class.

Both from a financial and environmental point of view the need for a clean hull, reduced resistance and hence reduced fuel consumption have never been more important. Many operators including the offshore energy sector are seeking coating systems with greater surface tolerant and extended life to 15, 20 or even 40 years.

This conference will provide a forum for materials manufactures, shipbuilders, repair yards, contractor's operators and owners, coating manufacturers, and classification societies. Papers are invited on all related topics including the following:

  • Performance standards for protective coatings
  • Oil tank coating standards
  • Search for alternative "equivalent" coating systems
  • Harmonization of coating system certification
  • Maintenance and repair of coating systems
  • Coating system development & challenges
  • Environmental issues: anti-fouling, solvent emissions, etc.
  • Coating measurement, recording and analysis systems
  • Future regulation
