Our Safety, Health and Environment policy is implemented through a management system approach that offers an integrated, structured method focused on seven key areas of our operations:
The European Union’s (EU) new, wide-ranging overhaul of its chemical control legislation known as REACH took effect on June 1, 2007. It will be implemented over the next 11 years and is designed to:
Under REACH all chemicals made in or imported into the EU in quantities of greater than one ton per year must undergo a process of registration, evaluation and authorization for use. Some chemicals, those of low hazard or that are regulated by other legislation, are exempted from REACH.
The use of substances that cause cancer, infertility in men and women, genetic mutations, birth defects and those which are persistent and accumulate in our bodies or the environment will be subject to authorization and potentially also restriction. Restriction may be imposed on any substance on its own, in a preparation or in an article on a community wide basis if its use poses an unacceptable risk to health or the environment.
The European Chemical Agency (ECHA) publishes the list for the substances candidate for authorization. New candidates are added at regular intervals.
Bayer-Wood Technologies Ltd is committed to and fully supports the goals of REACH.
If you have any questions on our implementation of REACH please don’t hesitate to contact us at Bayer-Wood Technologies for all divisions:

“Aquamarine Chemicals has been providing chemicals to ships within the fleets for which I have been responsible for over 20 years. During that time we have found the products to be of a consistently high quality and excellent value for money. Laura’s attention to our account has always been exemplary and it has been a pleasure to be involved with Aquamarine.” May 21, 2012
We were left a couple of samples of products that he thought were better suited to our needs onboard.
The Aquawash was better than the natural zest cleaner at cleaning bulkheads of traffic grime, soot and graphite grease. We will be ordering it in future on the MVK.
As long as the cost is not too much more then I would recommend that it is used across the fleet.
Also for ISO 14001 purposes it is biodegradable. It is also not harmful to the users, even if in contact with skin neat.
A good product
..we have now used the product in several areas all with considerable success.
we had particular problems in and around sharp edges of the hatch covers. Aquatan has been used here around the rubber packing gutters and behind the rubber prior to recoating with our epoxy and chlorinated rubber top coating system. Both have proved successful and reduced maintenance.
The second area is in the ballast tanks in and around rat holes, sharp edges etc in particular relating to the top side tanks. All our tanks are coated with coal tar epoxy or modified epoxies. However, due to numerous reasons there will be breakdown in these areas as described.
Top side tanks are not the best places to work and can be hot and stuffy. Painting has proved a problem due to the nature of the paint and ventilation in confined spaces. With Aquatan the crew do not have any problems with application or fumes and are quite happy to do the work required without any detriment or infringements on health or sefety at work. Preparation has been reduced and apllication is easy thus ensuring that actual time to do the work is reduced.
Overall were are very satisfied with the product and have used it with success in various other areas both in the engine room and on deck, all of which have proved successful.
We will continue to use the product as and when required thus assuring you of our continued business
