Correct coating choice and application at the new-building stage is the easiest way of ensuring that the coatings applied will provide maximum corrosion protection, thus improving the vessel's efficiency and helping to reduce onboard maintenance costs.
The building of a new vessel involves a large investment for the owner and is a
labor-intensive process for the shipyard. Coatings form a relatively small part of the total vessel cost, yet they are a key factor in subsequent asset protection, safe operation and maximizing revenues when the vessel is in service.
Products in the SIGMA COATINGS® brand portfolio are designed to cope with the most demanding service conditions and are formulated to allow efficient application in today's new-building shipyards. These coating systems provide both productivity benefits for the shipyard and also superior performance for the owner.
