Inhibitors are often added to liquefied gas cargoes prior to loading to prevent or slow down polymerization.

An inhibitor information form or certificate must be provided by the cargo shipper to the vessel. The certificate must contain information about the inhibitor, technical name and quantity, concentration of inhibitor, duration of effectiveness of inhibitor, expected duration of the sea voyage, temperature limitation qualifying the lifetime of the inhibitor and number of cargo tanks inhibited.
