Primers are a group of protective coatings that are applied directly to the substrate (steel, concrete, etc.). These paints are mainly used to provide corrosion-protection for steel structures with various mechanisms such as barrier or cathodic protection.
These products are beauty and available in a high variety of shades. Polyurethane paints are also UV resistant. On the other hand, alkyd paints are a good choice for touch-up in limited areas due to their ease of application and being one-component.
These are paints used for Touch-Up and on board maintenance (OBM). These paints can be easily applied with a brush or roller.
These coatings are based on silicone resin which makes the coating resistant to heat much higher than other usual coatings.
These coatings are applied between the primer and final coat and perform a variety of functions, including good adhesion between the primer and topcoat.
Paints that are used for protecting of ballast tanks in vessels from corrosion and also solvent-free coatings for potable water tanks are the most common examples for this purpose.
These paints have good corrosion & abrasion resistance. They also have good UV resistance and are used for painting the decks of vessels.
