The shipping industry is highly focused on maximizing both efficiency and capability. In order to achieve that, ships require that ultra lightweight materials be used to allow for increased load capabilities and improved operating speeds. Therefore, the evaluation of decking materials in ammunition and dry stores cargo holds of new T-AKE Navy ships was a lengthy process.

The selection of PolySpec® 7K and LITE LATEX was based on a calculation of efficiencies available through weight savings, a total of 50 tons per ship! In addition, these products meet stringent IMO (International Maritime Organization) fire safety standards.

This system was used on the first ship of a multi-ship contract by shipbuilder General Dynamics NASSCO. It was also used in reefer storage areas. PolySpec® LITE LATEX was also as an underlayment in the living quarters. In some areas PolySpec® FLEX IMO was used as a finish coating system.

Marine Decking Products Used:

  • PolySpec® 7K - IMO Approved Deck Top Magnesite Insulation
  • PolySpec® LITE LATEX - IMO Approved Light Weight Polymer Modified
  • PolySpec® FLEX IMO - IMO Approved Flexible Chip Seamless Floor
