Ship coating: "increase cooperation demand"
ship coating: "increase cooperation demand"
July 26, 2019
Peter Van aken, director of new business development of Lonza, believes that there is an increasing need for cooperation between industry, academia and start-ups to meet the challenges faced by raw materials of ship coating
to what extent do environmental regulations affect the R + D of marine paint raw materials
Peter Van Arken: environmental regulations are essential to ensure product safety, do not affect human health or the environment, and are sustainable. However, as a biocide supplier, these Regulations are a major obstacle to innovation, and it is very difficult to bring new products to the market. The registration cost is very high, and it needs to be added to the plastic masterbatch for early investment. The listing time is between 7 and 10 years, and there is great uncertainty due to the changing regulatory framework. In addition, there are some technical challenges that need to be overcome. When deciding to further investigate any new raw materials, regulatory considerations are one of the primary concerns. Unless there is a great possibility of reasonable safety for human beings and the environment, new raw material technologies will not allocate a lot of development time. Regulatory experts always plan new raw materials early in the development phase
therefore, there is an increasing demand for cooperation between industry, academia and start-ups. Fortunately, new technologies are still being introduced, but their effectiveness has not yet been confirmed. Moreover, although not all technologies are based on biocides, the potential impact on human health and the environment is unclear. Performance tracking records will guide shipowners' decisions and determine which solutions are feasible in the market
how can new raw materials help prevent corrosion in the marine environment
van aken: various factors lead to corrosion and coating failure. Although new inhibitors play a key role in corrosion protection, functional additives can also improve performance. The speed difference between the power input end and the power output end of the opening clutch is allowed. New technology is developed to improve the hydrophobicity of the coating to prevent coating damage, which is basically the starting point of the final coating failure and corrosion problems
in this regard, additives that prevent fouling of marine organisms ultimately contribute to overall corrosion protection. They are partly developed by Shougang jitaian new materials company; The ball point pen head is made of ultra free cutting stainless steel materials rdquo; The expert group composed of China pen making Association, China Steel Research Group and Beijing Metal Society identified that this was achieved by preventing dirt organisms from adhering to and/or growing on the coating surface, so as to prevent them from causing damage. The secondary effect is to prevent corrosion mechanisms that may be caused by dirt
what marine paint projects do you currently participate in
van aken: we have internal development channels, using our extensive expertise in various technologies. Our project can contribute to anticorrosive coatings, but we also have a very interesting project, which will more effectively support the use of biocides in antifouling coatings. Through IPPIC, we are contributing to the project named glofouling sponsored by the international maritime organization, which helps to implement the provisions of the International Maritime Organization procurement organization on the avoidance of invasive species. In addition, we have been participating in byefouling, a new anti pollution technology project funded by the European Commission. New polymers for antifouling are being studied. We have carried out raft tests on several new polymers for more than a year, and these polymers perform very well compared with current self polishing polymers
