After discharge of cargoes such as petcoke, coal, pencil pitch, coke, cement, ores, minerals, feedstock etc, small particles of the cargo that have penetrated in the minute pores of the paintwork remain firmly attached to the cargo hold surface due to electromagnetic forces. Therefore, the cleaning procedure for a new and sensitive cargo is usually costly and labor intensive, before cargo holds are acceptably cleaned. ROCHEM SLIP COAT is a unique blend of natural ingredients and film stability improvers that can be easily applied by ship’s own crew before loading. ROCHEM SLIP COAT effectively prevents stains and footprints of cargoes adhering to the surfaces of cargo holds that cause corrosion and are difficult to clean. Therefore, cargo holds can be kept “grain clean” with much less effort and cost. ROCHEM SLIP COAT acts as a barrier and release agent between the cargo hold surface and the next cargo. It should be applied on clean surfaces. ROCHEM SLIP COAT can be used in cargo holds carrying foodstuff and is harmless to normal cargoes, coatings and the environment. ROCHEM SLIP COAT may also be sprayed on superstructure and other areas exposed to dust during loading and unloading operations, paying attention to its slippery nature, while it is still wet.


Cargo holds should be washed down and should be as clean as possible. Cargo holds should be dry before application of ROCHEM SLIP COAT. ROCHEM SLIP COAT is supplied as a convenient, ready-to-use concentration and is applied directly from the drum. Use a suitable low- pressure spraying equipment to spray ROCHEM SLIP COAT on the cargo hold surfaces. Start application from bottom of cargo hold and work your way upwards. Apply in a sweeping pattern until a section is covered. It is recommended that ROCHEM CARGO HOLD CHEMICAL APPLICATOR KIT is used for this purpose. As soon as the surface appears water wet, a proper film is created. Do not apply more than necessary. ROCHEM SLIP COAT can also be brushed or rolled. Bulkhead should be left to dry before loading of the next cargo starts. Depending on the weather conditions, this could take from 30 min to more than 2 hours.

After discharging, use power wash of fresh or salt water to remove ROCHEM SLIP COAT and residual cargo. Nonetheless, to ensure complete removal and avoid re-deposition of contaminants, a cleaning agent is recommended, but at lower dosage rates than what normally is required. Best working alkaline cleaner for removing is ROCHEM ALKLEEN LIQUID, preferably applied with ROCHEM CARGO HOLD CHEMICAL APPLICATOR KIT, before using the power wash.


Discharge into the sea: The composition of this material is not harmful to the marine environment, meeting the criteria of MARPOL Annex V.

The material may be discharged into the sea when used to clean cargo holds and external surfaces on ships, always taking into account the discharge limitations and the vessel’s area of operation.
