Dekaphon ballast tank (BT) coatings

Dekaphon ballast tank (BT) coatings The coatings are oil based, solvent free coatings to protect the (steel) ballast tanks in ships against corrosion. Dekaphon BT Coat can be used on new ballast tanks and on existing coatings. After application the tanks can be ballasted immediately. Dekaphon BT Coat has superb anti-corrosive properties.

Although it is guaranteed to offer protection for at least 2 years, results in practice have shown that, with scheduled maintenance, periods of 10 years or longer are common.

Dekaphon BT Maintenance Coat is recommended for maintenance of ballast tanks which have been treated earlier with Dekaphon BT Coat or equivalent products.

Dekaphon BT Maintenance Coat floats on the ballast water and deposits itself as a protective coating on adjacent tank surfaces during ballasting and deballasting operations.
