Nippon Paint Marine reflects cool tones on ship coatings in darker hues


Nippon Paint Marine's Ever Cool comes to save the day, says press release.
"White paint doesn't look clean for long. Yet ship coatings of a darker hue absorb more heat, increase the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) requirement and, consequently, electrical load, resulting in higher fuel consumption and emissions," it concludes in gloomy tones.
"So, what the industry needs is a darker coating that fails to absorb the heat, right? A coating like Nippon Paint Marine's Ever Cool," it says in triumphal tones.
Introduced to the market following extensive shipboard trials, Ever Cool is specially formulated to reduce the effect of the Sun's infrared rays on ship operations, says the press release.
The temperature difference between, for example, a deck coated with conventional paint system and one with Ever Cool can be up to about 28C, with the specially formulated coating reflecting up to 80 per cent of the Sun's heat from coloured coatings.
