Industrial and Marine Protective Coatings

Corrosion Protection is an area that is utmost concern especially with regards to assets continuity and preservation. In line with our expertise and experience, we have developed and patented products that meet such critical demands and conditions.

Industry Leading Expertise in marine coatings

Product Characteristics

Aqua ST is designed as a two part paint system. It is a low volatile organic content paint with a high solid content. It is a modified epoxy coat that gives long term protection and has high resistance properties.

It is ideal for use in harsh marine and industrial environments with no compromise on quality. Aqua ST will continue to cure even when immersed in water.

A low viscosity epoxy coating with excellent adhesion to steel, concrete, metal to metal and non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, stainless steel, titanium, FRP and even glass.

Versatile in which it can be applied onto damp or dry surfaces and displays excellent adhesion and compatibility to other coatings. Contains Zirconium and is suitable for rebuilding pitted surfaces.

The coating is suitable for use on the Industrial Floors and Oil & Gas, Fabrication and Power industries.
