Offering enhanced cargo resistance, near zero absorption for many cargoes and fewer cycling restrictions, "Interline 9001” is a bimodal epoxy coating for the cargo tanks of chemical tankers.

Simplifying the carriage of liquid cargoes

One of its benefits is that it simplifies the carriage of a wide range of liquid cargoes, enhancing vessel earning potential. Navig8 selected the product to help deliver operational benefits for the 37,000 pennyweights (dwt) vessels, providing the improved vessel capacity and good operational flexibility required to meet increased market demand for large volume contracts of affreightment.
 
In addition to the work being carried out at the Hyundai Mipo Dockyard, Navig8 has also selected the  epoxy coating for a further four 49,000 dwt vessels under construction at STX shipyard, also in South Korea.
