Developer's voice

In shipyards and repair yards, marine coatings are generally applied at high speed with airless spray.
Maintenance on-board by ships’ crew is generally however more often carried out using rollers or brushes. This vital difference meant that our product developers had to focus on different aspects of the formulation of the materials that affect their physical properties. This was done to ensure that the new Crew Series range were working at their best with crew type application methods.
Ships are by the nature, moving objects. A crew might pick up paints in Europe one month and in Asia the next. Nippon Paint Marine’s chemists had to formulate the products carefully to ensure that the raw materials used were available for supply in the global market.

User voice

The crew series are familiar with the brush and can be brushed smoothly.
Compared to other paints, the marks of the brush are less noticeable and it is hard to drip due to Moderate viscosity of the paints.

It can be concealed the surface by one-time coating,
So we can work efficiently by painting this series.
