Products & Services
A patented (US 6,281,321 and EP 0 941290), high performance, two component, high solids inorganic hybrid finish which offers compliance to all current VOC legislation, and contains no free isocyanates
A two component, chemically resistant epoxy phenolic tank lining.
A two pack, heat resistant zinc silicate shop (pre-construction) primer providing good corrosion protection (even after heating up to 800°C (1472°F)), with minimum production of zinc salts. Suitable for high speed welding and cutting with excellent resistance to damage caused by welding, gas cutting and fairing thereby reducing secondary surface preparation requirements in comparison to typical zinc silicate products.
A two pack, heat resistant, water based shop (pre-construction) primer providing good corrosion protection and resistance to damage caused by welding, gas cutting and fairing. Suitable for fast welding processes and offers control of secondary surface preparation requirements.
A high solids (78% <250g/l), light colored, abrasion resistant, aluminium pure epoxy coating giving ultimate long term anticorrosive protection and low temperature application capability. A universal primer which can be applied directly to mechanically prepared shop primer or suitably prepared bare steel. Suitable for use with controlled cathodic protection..
A Low Solar Absorbing, high solids, extended durability, epoxy non-skid deck coating. Developed to meet the requirements of MIL-PRF-24667C Types I, II and V, Composition G.
Intersleek®1000 is our latest fouling control with Lanion technology, incorporating bio-renewable raw material. It is exceptionally smooth with very low levels of average hull roughness. This, combined with excellent resistance to fouling, means that all vessels can benefit from this latest fouling control technology.
Intersleek 1100SR is the first biocide free fouling control coating featuring unique patented Slime Release technology that combats micro fouling on ships’ hulls, maintaining performance throughout the docking cycle.The latest innovation in our Intersleek® range, delivers outstanding macro and micro fouling control with improved static resistance, even in warm waters and is suitable for slow steaming. Slime that does build up during static periods is released by the movement of the ship through water. As a result vessels can achieve reduced drag, improved fuel efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions.
A surface tolerant universal pure epoxy primer for use as an anticorrosive touch up coating providing excellent corrosion protection. Intershield® One-2-One is a crew-friendly onboard maintenance two-pack universal primer, specifically engineered to a 1:1 mix ratio, offering simplified mixing and reducing wastage.
