Marine coatings are applied to military or commercial ships, pleasure craft,
off shore rigs but also structures which are in sea or fresh water environments.
Marine coatings need to provide the dual protection from corrosion and against marine
-related damage and provide the performance demanded in the marine industry.
They are formulated to withstand the rigors of water immersion, salt water contact,
ultra violet rays and growth of fouling organisms. Another important point in marine
coatings is the coating’s ability to be applied under difficult construction and
Main chemistries used to formulate marine coatings are epoxies or polyurethanes.
They constitute the ideal binders to face the challenge of the marine industry,
they bring corrosion and chemical resistance, durability , wethearability...
