Anti-corrosion coatings

Best in class binders for anti-corrosion, metal coatings

The failure to protect metal results in the monetary losses of billions annually. Synthomer technologies provide long-lasting metal protection helping you create anti-corrosion products that maintain both aesthetic appeal, and structural integrity. Our extensive range of water-based and solvent-borne resins provide specific protective attributes, including resistance to corrosion, fire (intumescence), efflorescence and chemicals, as well as thermal insulation. Synthomer binders also allow you to boost the environmental credentials of your products with resin-options including low-VOC and non-hazardous substances such as APEO and formaldehyde-free solutions. Synthomer technologies can be applied as direct-to-metal all-in-one coating or as a primer application. They are ideal for use on steel frame constructions such as power pylons, marine, and ACE applications (agriculture, construction, and earth-moving equipment). Our binders will help you achieve anti-corrosion performance according to EN 12944-2 C 3-C 4, medium protection level (five to 15 years) and can be applied at ambient or slightly forced temperatures.

Benefits for your anti-corrosion coatings

  • Create APEO-free and formaldehyde-free formulations.
  • Advanced surfactants to ensure excellent wetting and adhesion on metal substrates.
  • Outstanding hydrophobicity.
  • Superior salt-spray resistance.
  • High-gloss enamel
