Marine and Protective Coatings

Revenue increased primarily due to price/mix and currencies. Marine volumes were lower due to the slowdown in the new construction market. Protective Coatings increased volumes in all regions, especially in the heavy industry and oil and gas segments. In Yacht, lower volumes were compensated by margin management activity. In Marine, we launched our Silyl acrylate antifouling coatings during the first quarter. The product is designed to improve and enhance customer choice in both newbuild and maintenance and repair markets.
