..we have now used the product in several areas all with considerable success.
we had particular problems in and around sharp edges of the hatch covers. Aquatan has been used here around the rubber packing gutters and behind the rubber prior to re-coating with our epoxy and chlorinated rubber top coating system. Both have proved successful and reduced maintenance.
The second area is in the ballast tanks in and around rat holes, sharp edges etc in particular relating to the top side tanks. All our tanks are coated with coal tar epoxy or modified epoxies. However, due to numerous reasons there will be breakdown in these areas as described.
Top side tanks are not the best places to work and can be hot and stuffy. Painting has proved a problem due to the nature of the paint and ventilation in confined spaces. With Aquatan the crew do not have any problems with application or fumes and are quite happy to do the work required without any detriment or infringements on health or safety at work. Preparation has been reduced and application is easy thus ensuring that actual time to do the work is reduced.
Overall were are very satisfied with the product and have used it with success in various other areas both in the engine room and on deck, all of which have proved successful.
We will continue to use the product as and when required thus assuring you of our continued business

Using Aquasteel, ships staff have treated and recoated the areas from both accommodation ladder tops back to the accommodation: they are feeling justifiably satisfied with their performance. With diminishing time, resources and weather they need a rapid method of preparing for and applying coatings that will see the ship across the Atlantic and through a British winter. I think only AQUASTEEL can provide that method.
Aquamarine has supplied chemicals for our tanker fleet of ships for approximately 10 years and we have found them to be efficient in delivery, modest in cost and extremely helpful when advice is sought.
They have supplied all our cleaning, cooling and boiler water treatments and test kits and monitor the test results we send. The chemicals have been efficient in use with clear instructions and with safety data sheets provided.
Fleet of Dry Cargo and Small Tankers
We were left a couple of samples of products that he thought were better suited to our needs onboard.
The Aquawash was better than the natural zest cleaner at cleaning bulkheads of traffic grime, soot and graphite grease. We will be ordering it in future on the MVK.
As long as the cost is not too much more then I would recommend that it is used across the fleet.
Also for ISO 14001 purposes it is biodegradable. It is also not harmful to the users, even if in contact with skin neat.
A good product
