Developed for the maritime industry, it is suit-able for the interior & exterior of shipboard structures and tanks as well as other appli-cations where performance counts. The rapid cure of this coating system offers a near instant “walk-on time” and rapid return to service, typically within 30 to 45 minutes, with a single coat capability. This will greatly reduce the coatings application process time and cost during new construction and overhaul. The excellent adhesion and high im-pact resistance make this coating suitable for high traffic areas and harsh environ-ments extending the service life cycle time for major critical assets, such as ships. The superior chemical resistance also makes the rapid cure coating system suitable for the interior and exterior of shipboard tanks such as fresh water and sea water, fuel, waste and other tank systems.Benefits
Reduced coatings appli-cation process time
Rapid cure (in minutes, not hours or days as with other systems) and one coat ap-plication capability dramati-cally reduce the coatings system process bottleneck.
Reduced lifecycle cost
Excellent adhesion, high impact resistance and high chemical resistance im-prove the coatings service life in harsh outdoor, chemi-cal, and marine environ-ments.
Environmentally compatible
Solvent free, VOC free, and odor free ensure environ-mental compliance in many uses.
