Belgian anti-corrosion coating company Acotec, has recently announced the launch of its one-layer protection coating for the wind farm industry, Humidur WF22. According to the company, this product is based on their all-weather offshore coating technology, reportedly delivering protection against aggressive humidity and seawater exposure.
The new product reportedly offers over 35 years of protection in highly corrosive environments. The one-coat system is cost-effective in that it reduces application time, labour costs and level of waste.
The coating has been proven to cure under water, including at freezing temperatures, allowing the structure to be submerged right after application. The coating is also 100% solids, containing no solvents, heavy metals, isocyanates, or VOCs, concluded the company.
