System specifications for marine coatings

When selecting a specific vessel area, you will find systems listed as generic types trying to catch the main characteristic of the system in one keyword. In general this keyword will refer to binders used in paints forming a particular system.
In some cases an additional keyword is added in order to emphasize a special feature of the system.
For example ‘abrasion resistant epoxy’ contains the keyword epoxy referring to the binder type while abrasion resistant points out an important feature of the system.
The actual choice of system is dependent on several factors such as vessel condition, lifetime requirements and budget. The quality of surface preparation and method of paint application might influence the choice of system as well.
