Polyurethane Binder

Polyurethane binder 11320/11351 is a high gloss finish designed to prevent corrosion. Its principle function is to provide resistance to the detrimental effects of natural sunlight maintaining its colour and glossiness at the same time.

The polyurethane binder provides an increased resistance to the sunlight as compared to epoxy based finishes. Polyurethane binder can be used as a finish coat on a wide range of offshore, heavy industry and marine structures.

Polyurethane Gloss Paint “Air Coat”

PINTUCO’s polyurethane gloss paint consists of two main components. Component A is a polyester resin enamel while component B is an isocyanate catalyst. The mixture produces a high gloss topcoat with excellent resistance to humidity, abrasion, decolouration and aggressive fluids. This coating’s balanced formula provides excellent chemical resistance, incomparable distinction of image, good chip resistance and flexibility.

"Air Coat" is the new paint formula developed especially for commercial, sporting, military and space aircraft and consists of the following: polyester putty, base epoxy, two non-toxic components and the two-component polyurethane paint with high temperature resistance.

Epoxy High Solid Tank Lining Coating

PINTUCO’s epoxy high solid tank lining coating consists of: pigmented epoxy base and clear polyamine curing agent. To use this coating the mixing of 4 parts of epoxy base and 1 part of curing agent is required. The dry film thickness is typically 250µm (10 mils).

Inorganic Zinc-Rich Coating

Two components, the zinc-rich primer consisting of an ethyl silicate binder and the zinc dust powder form the inorganic zinc rich coating. To use this coating, the mixing of 3.17 parts of primer and 1 part of powder is required. Inorganic zinc-rich coating is often referred to as inorganic zinc rich (IOZ), or inorganic zinc silicate, due to the inorganic silicate chemical processes applied.
