Epoxy is a 2 pack products containing base and hardener with Anticorrosive pigments. The coating forms a hard, passive barrier preventing water / water vapour to reach the substrate thereby protecting the steel structure from corrosion.
Epoxies are the best available choice for steel as Anticorrosive coatings. But Epoxies tend to chalk in presence of UV radiation. Therefore Epoxy coatings are top coated with PU Coatings for durability and aesthetics. Polyurethane paints are well known for its color and gloss retention. Available in a wide range of colors.
A general purpose alkyd-solvent based coatings loaded with anticorrosive pigment for the protection of steel surfaces against the corrosive environments. The product offers good leveling and excellent adhesion on steel substrates which are not immersed in water.Economical coating for medium term corrosion protection.
Vinyl Paints are physically drying with excellent water resistance and poor solvent resistance. It possesses very good chemical resistance and has very low solid volumes.
Rubber based topcoat with excellent resistance to water and various chemicals. It has superior abrasion resistance. It is recommended for structural steel, marine application, machinery, chemical plants and concrete. It has very low solvent and temperature resistance and also physically drying.
Most durable coating with long term gloss retention and protection from UV-radiations. Polyurethane (PU) finishes are applied as Topcoats on Epoxies to protect epoxy coatings from chalking.
Zinc silicate coating, suitable as a system primer in various paint systems based on unsaponifiable binder. It has excellent corrosion resistance and good solvent resistance. Temperature can withstand up to 600°C substrate under normal atmospheric exposure conditions.
Antifouling Paints prevent the growth of fouling (the settlement and growth of marine organisms and plants in underwater area of the ship which increases fuel consumption of the ship movement.)
A medium for dilution at the time of application is available for Alkyd coatings, PU coatings, epoxy coatings, NC Paints etc for all type of generic coatings. Thinners are used for the ease of application of the paint. Should be taken in using the right thinner for each type of paint.
