F. Ball at Cruise Ship Interiors Expo Europe

Marine-certified products from F. Ball have been used to deliver a high-performance refurbishment for a number of deck areas on board a P&O passenger and cargo ship

F. Ball and Co. Ltd. is exhibiting at Cruise Ship Interiors Expo Europe, which takes place in Barcelona, Spain on 4-5 December. The decision to attend the show followed the company’s successful participation at Cruise Ship Interiors Expo America, held in Miami in June.

The Expo will be used to promote F. Ball’s range of Maritime Equipment Directive (MED) certified flooring adhesives and levelling compounds, including adhesives for carpet, vinyl and rubber floorcoverings, and high-performance levelling compounds to create a super smooth, sound subfloor onto which a floorcovering can be installed.

F. Ball marine products have been used to install flooring in some of the world’s most prestigious cruise ships, as well as polar exploration vessels, Mediterranean super yachts, New Orleans paddle steamers showboats, and offshore oil rigs.

Among the key products for marine applications are Stopgap 700 Superflex levelling compound, which is recommended for substrates subject to flexing or movement with temperature changes such as steel decking, and Styccobond F49 Hybrid PS temperature tolerant vinyl adhesive, which is able to withstand extreme changes in temperature and is resistant to water.

F. Ball will also use the Expo to reinforce the company’s leading credentials in the manufacture of subfloor preparation products, highlighting the continual innovation and development of its products, supported by certification of its manufacturing and quality processes to international standards ISO 9001, 14001 and 45001.

Commenting on the company’s presence at the Expo, Export Business Manager Jonathan Goold said: “Achieving a perfect finished appearance for the flooring in cruise ships and other marine vessels is as important as every other aspect of the internal décor and furniture. In addition, ensuring the flooring maintains its integrity over the lifetime of the installation – both in terms of appearance and safety – is a critical consideration for any marine environment. F. Ball products are developed and exhaustively tested to ensure that both of these benefits can be guaranteed.”
