Marine Paint and Coatings

Paint is the most commonly used material to protect steel. Paint systems for steel structures have developed over the years to comply with industrial environmental legislation and in response to demands from bridge and building owners for improved durability performance.

Marine coatings - With their anti-corrosive or anti-fouling properties, marine coatings are designed for all kinds of vessels, including commercial and cargo ships. Coatings for offshore oil rigs and equipment are described under Protective and maintenance coatings.

Protective and maintenance coatings also known as heavy-duty or high-performance coatings, protective and maintenance coatings are applied on steel structures, steel bridges, off-shore oil rigs and equipment, chemical and petroleum plants, piping and other structures requiring protection against corrosion and/or high resistance to wear and tear. These coatings generally require much thicker film, i.e., 3-4 mm, than architectural and decorative coatings. BASF's resin technology includes polyurethane, polyester and epoxy. Typical applications include heat-resistant coatings for pipes and flares, heavy-duty floor paint for factories, warehouses and airport hangars and high-performance coatings for oil-rig towers, bridges, plant and related equipment.
