Coatings manufacturer Jotun (Sandefjord, Norway) has introduced a new coating line for offshore maintenance, designed specifically for brush and roller application to power-tooled and waterjetted surfaces.

The line consists of a ceramically reinforced zinc-rich epoxy primer (Barrier Smart Pack), a high-solids, high-build epoxy mastic coating (Jotamastic Smart Pack HB) and a single-component polysiloxane (Hardtop One). The three coatings are individual products that can be used together as a three-coat system.

Jotun has introduced a new coating line for offshore maintenance.

According to Jotun, the line comprises the world’s first NORSOK-approved brush- and roller-applied coating for power-tooled and waterjetted offshore surfaces. NORSOK M-501 is a standard developed by the Norwegian oil and gas industry for surface preparation and coatings for offshore structures.

According to Jotun, the new products address an issue in the offshore industry: a lack of coating products designed for ongoing maintenance.

“Until now, offshore maintenance solutions were typically designed and tested in accordance with standards for new constructions,” said Lasse Isaksen, global concept director for Jotun’s Offshore division. “This simply does not reflect the challenges that our customers experience when maintaining existing assets.”

Specific Solutions

According to the manufacturer, each of the three products presents a specific solution to an existing issue with offshore coating.

Barrier Smart Pack is designed to extend system life and for ease of application; in addition to brush or roller, it can be applied via airless spray if preferred.

Jotamastic Smart Pack HB is designed for ease of application and can be applied at a high film thickness. (Jotun typically recommends a wet film thickness of 130 to 260 microns, resulting in a dry film thickness of 100 to 200 microns.)

And Hardtop One is made for one-component application as a topcoat; it does not contain isocyanates and does not produce di-isocyanates during hot work, the company notes.
