New Video Demonstration Highlights Flexibility of MarineLine® Enhanced

A new video presents the excellent flexibility of APC’s MarineLine® Enhanced cargo tank coating. This new coating with nano technology has an elongation virtually equal to carbon steel. This must-see video demonstrates how Carbon Steel Q-Panels coated with MarineLine® Enhanced are bent during an ASTM D522 testing procedure. Closeup photos after the testing show no cracking or similar problems.
