Seagoing vessels often face severe marine climates and experience recurrent wet-dry cycles, which accelerate cathodic/anodic reactions and cause corrosion that damages their submerged hulls, propulsion components, tanks, and deck equipment. Ship corrosion prevention is therefore highly important for keeping vessels running smoothly and efficiently when out at sea.

Ship owners can effectively prevent and control ship corrosion by applying corrosion-resistant coatings on vessel surfaces that have more exposure to seawater along with implementing proper maintenance procedures involving corrosion and cathodic protection treatments.

Choosing ship corrosion protection and insulation solutions

Corrosion can have varying effects on different metallic components of a ship based on its exposure to different corrosive environments whilst in transportation. Using waterproof insulation around electrical circuits and cable connectors saves electrical equipment and systems from serious damages caused by corrosion. 

It is therefore, important to choose long-lasting and cost-effective coating materials for ships at the time of construction and inspect corrosion-prone areas and treat them during periodic maintenance schedules.
