A new range of coatings for industries requiring the highest level of protection is being brought to the UK by Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings.
Sherwin-Williams will be the sole UK distributor for the range of coatings, which feature integrated micro-ceramic particles for diverse sectors worldwide.
Working with Ceramic Polymer GmbH, Sherwin-Williams will make these specialist coatings widely available in the UK for markets including the petrochemical, maritime and biogas industries.
The coatings are applied directly onto steel, stainless steel and concrete without use of a primer, with subsequent savings in time and cost over conventional multi-layer systems.
They offer enhanced levels of corrosion protection, outstanding adhesion, extreme abrasion resistance, excellent resistance to impact, high bending flexibility and are 100% solvent-free. They also provide excellent chemical and thermal resistance for extreme operating environments.
Carl Flavell, sales director for Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings, said: “The combination of the range of products and our network support will provide UK customers with a further service, enabling access to specialist protection where required.
“For those organisations operating in these fields and emerging industries such as biogas, these products are a welcome solution to long-term issues.”
Ceramic Polymer coatings are tested to the highest standards including Saudi Aramco Approvals APCS-2i, APCS-28 and APCS-117, German standard (KTW) for drinking water approval and ISO 20340 performance requirements for protective paint systems for offshore related structures.
