Corrosion-Resistant Coatings for the Offshore and any heavy Industry
MCU-Coatings produces world's best-performing single component moisture curing urethanes (MCU). Based on 100% pure polyurethane resin, our coatings are not comparable to traditional two-component PU/Acrylic coatings, which contain only 20-30% pure PU resin.
MCU-Coatings combines superior high-impact resistance and outstanding abrasion resistance with durable flexibility. The resin technology used to make MCU-Coatings is also used to make products like the heart valves, soles of sport shoes and much parts of an automobile which will remain flexible and durable for years.
MCU-Coatings compare to 2 pack Epoxy / PU coatings … informational video
Our introduction video explains the technology, compares our coatings with plural component epoxy coating, polyurethane paint and inorganic coatings and demonstrates the possible application conditions. To see the video click here.
All our coatings are single-component, require no catalyzation, can be applied without restriction in humidity´s to 99% on damp surfaces. They can be fast, after application, immersed or subjected to fog, rain, snow, or condensate. They have no dew-point restrictions, and can even be applied in temperatures as low as -15°C. Many major painting projects are delayed by unforgiving application restrictions of typical epoxy, urethane or inorganic coating.
MCU-Coatings removes these restrictions and still yields better corrosion resistance and coating life. These are not our claims, but proven facts; proven on 5 kilometers bridge in harsh winter climates. Also thousands of other projects on wasterwater, marine, offshore, paper, mill, pipeline, chemical exposure, gates, locks and dams have proven our performance and application advantages.
Moisture cure Polyurea (MCU) corrosion protection coating
To cover 99% of all the different areas of typical projects such as refineries, ships, platforms, civil and petrochemical facilities, traditional coatings will need 20 or more different types of paints to cover all these different areas. MCU-Coatings only will need three or four types of paint and only one thinner. The MCU Technology of MCU-Coatings includes:
• One component – no mixing errors
• No pot life limitation, no waste
• Application possible up to 99% relative humidity
• Tolerant to damp substrates
• For tank internals may be used without de-humidification (DH)
• Tolerant to flash rust or power tooled substrates
• Resistant to rain or moisture within minutes of application
For these reasons MCU-Coatings guarantees the fastest possible project completion time.
Our systems are tested to the most demanding prequalification tests and passed NORSOK with rust-creep values below 3mm, even after 2.5 times the required exposure time. Major offshore structures around the globe have tested and used MCU-Coatings extensively to protect their offshore structures from corrosion. From the cold climates of Alaska over the dry African atmosphere to the high humidity areas in South East Asia, MCU-Coatings has been proven to outperform the well-known plural component epoxy coating systems every time.
