Marine & Protective Coatings

WACKER offers a broad range of organic and inorganic binders and additives to enhance the durability and performance of marine and protective coatings.

SILRES® organofunctional polysiloxanes serve as high-performance binders or curing agents in coating systems for single and top coats.

Benefits

  • Increased resistance to UV radiation, highly corrosive agents and chemicals
  • Increased durability
  • Easy-to-clean surfaces

SILRES® intermediates can be used in the formulation of organopolysiloxane topcoats.

WACKER ethyl silicate binders bring excellent corrosion protection to zinc-dust coatings.

Benefits

  • Improved corrosion protection
  • Good weldability
  • Rapid curing at low temperatures
  • Overpaintability with all conventional paint systems

Elastomeric RTV-type silicones can be used as binders in marine foul-release coatings. WACKER also offers suitable siloxane polymers and crosslinkers for the formulation of these coatings.

VINNOL® surface-coating resins containing carboxyl groups are ideal for formulating primers, corrosion-protection paints and highly filled marine paints.

Benefits

  • Excellent metal adhesion
  • High resistance to acids, alkalis and salt solutions
  • Good pigment wetting
  • Low water absorption
