Seaward was instrumental in developing and refining a solution to underwater structure preservation and corrosion problems. Seaward uses the HYCOTE underwater paint formulation, which features a unique 2-part epoxy coating which is specifically designed to be applied in wet environments.
The system is tolerant of a wide range of ambient temperatures and does not require a prime coat. The cured coating has excellent resistance to a wide range of chemicals and has a hard, smooth finish with a very low drag co-efficent.
The coating has within its range of normal usage the standard above-water protection of metal in processing plants, marine and offshore environments, tankage and shipping. It has the special characteristic of being able to be applied underwater and therefore is ideal for application in high humidity, to wet surfaces and during inclement weather.
EXPERIENCE: Seaward has applied more than 193,000 square feet of Hycote*
no primers required
allows a wide range of coating thickness by single or multiple coat application
the normal single coat application saves time and cost
well designed plural component application equipment reduces materials wastage
