Protective Coatings

Protective coatings are a simple way to reduce corrosion, by limiting the exposure of the metal to a corrosive environment. Paint is a very common protective coating, but tar, pitch, bitumen and plastics are also used

A wide range of protective coatings for steel or concrete structures. Used in large thickeners, leach tanks, floatation cells or as corrosion protection for exposed steel structures, we cover the whole application range. The products are either manually applied or by the use of special spraying equipment.

Tunnel linings have to be protected for long lasting service life. For permanent protection and for visual design of the tunnel construction, effective surface protection systems are used. They have a firm bonding with the substrate, are resistant against stress from de-icing salt, moisture and damages from air and act as a protection against carbonation. These coating systems do not restrict the diffusion of water vapor and slow ageing process of concrete. Sikagard range of paints covers all these applications and it is referenced.
