Industrial Processes

All maritime structures, such as platforms, offshore installations and ocean-going ships, are strongly and constantly affected by abrasion and corrosion. This translates into important investments for the companies that manage them.

Zinc coatings


Zinc coatings are a type of coating that provide corrosion protection to ferrous surfaces. They contain large quantities of zinc metal powder dispersed in poly-siloxane, urethane, epoxy or butyl resins, or in the form of zinc silicate binder (very similar to the sodium silicates of mural paints and mastics, capable of cross-linking in a sort of...

Phosphorus passivators are water-soluble synthetic polymers with phosphorus-based functional groups, suitable for reacting on surfaces (multi-metal) to create passivating nano-coatings capable of promoting paint adhesion and significantly increasing corrosion resistance.

The passivation of stainless steel occurs naturally, when the alloy is in an environment capable of bringing oxygen to the surface of the metal. When oxygen (coming from air, water, an oxidizing agent or other sources) comes into contact with the surface of stainless steel, it reacts with the chromium present in the alloy forming the oxides and...

It is a deep surface cleaning process that uses ultrasound to agitate a fluid with a cleaning cavitating effect. Ultrasonic tanks are available in different sizes, from small portable or benchtop units with an internal volume of less than 0.5 litres, to large industrial units with volumes approaching 1,000 litres, which can be integrated with...

Sandblasting is a technique widely used in industry for cleaning, preparing and restoring surfaces. Among the various methodologies available, wet blasting has gained increasing popularity due to its effectiveness and the many advantages it offers over other techniques.

Cooling lubricants, also known as cutting fluids, are liquids that are used to cool and lubricate the cutting edge of machine tools during the machining process. These fluids serve several important functions, including reducing friction, dissipating heat, and flushing away chips and debris.

Wash primer


A wash primer (or shop primer) is a pre-treatment product used as first coat for metal surfaces. It is specially designed to offer support, consistency and adhesion to all types of paint. Often the wash primer is followed by a priming base coat to further increase the performance of the final paint coating.
