Intershield 163 Inerta 160


Product Description


A high solids, low VOC, two pack epoxy abrasion resistant coating designed for ice-going vessels. Low ice adhesion. Low frictional resistance. Designed for operation at temperatures as low as -50°C.



Intended Uses

To provide corrosion protection on the underwater areas of ice-going vessels including ice breakers.


Maximizes icebreaking efficiency. Controls fuel consumption by control of hull roughness.


Also for use on anode shield areas. Suitable for use with controlled cathodic protection. For use at Newbuilding or Maintenance & Repair.

Thinning will destroy the abrasion resistance properties of the coating.

Acetone is used as a flush because it evaporates very quickly and has the minimum effect, if any residual thinner remains in the whip hose.


It is also excluded from V.O.C. regulations.
