New Product Announcement: Metallic Topcoat


Earlier this week, marine and protective coatings company Jotun released its new high-gloss metallic topcoat system for its superyacht segment. MegaGloss Metallic was launched as part of its MegaGloss family of products, including MegaGloss AC and MegaGloss HG.

“Metallic topcoats have always been the most difficult to apply,” commented Roelof Barelds, Jotun's Yachting Sales Director, “so it was a vital feature that we could offer a system designed to give applicators the opportunity to achieve the best possible result.

“By offering excellent levelling properties combined with specialist technical support at every stage, you can rest assured that the final finish will exceed expectations.”

According to Warner, the coating’s high DOI combined with its excellent abrasion resistance helps to protect yachts from scratches.

“Superyachts demand the very best solutions,” he said. “If the owner would like their yacht to match their supercar, we can provide tailor-made colors to help them stand out from the crowd.”

The company notes that it also provides technical support at every stage through its JotunCare lifecycle service, including before, during and after project completion. Jotun reports that it has also been active in the superyacht market for over 25 years.

“In that time,” said Tracey Warner, Jotun’s Yachting Category Manager, “the company has built an in-depth understanding of the needs and challenges of the customers within this demanding market.”
