This company’s Protective and Marine Coatings business has launched SIGMACOVERTM580 coating, an epoxy anticorrosive/tiecoat that can reportedly deliver considerable savings and improved productivity at dry dockings. The coating is engineered to provide ease of use and economical application. It can offer a practical overcoating window and be applied year-round.

The new coating “provides an outstanding spot-repair solution for the dry dock market due to its unique functionality,” said Sijmen Visser, Global Marketing manager, Marine. “It is an epoxy coating for underwater hulls that functions both as an anticorrosive and as an antifouling tiecoat. This dual-use formulation means that it can be overcoated directly with a range of antifoulings and is suitable for use during routine maintenance and repair dry dockings. Ultimately, this provides significant budget savings for the shipowner and can dramatically reduce time in dry dock. For areas that need spot blast of 40% or less, it gives customers excellent value, superb performance, and an outstanding return on investment.”
