UC2K MARINE COAT protects customers’ assets by delivering an easy to clean protective shield that repels unwanted contaminants and prevents damage to the protected surface for many years.
UC2K MARINE COAT should be applied to exterior surfaces to provide extra protection both above and below the water line. It can also be applied to interior surfaces.
Preventing fouling on the underwater area of a ship reduces maintenance requirements and significantly reduces maintenance costs, as the ship has to be removed from the water on a less regular basis.
However, the biggest advantage of a clean underwater area is the reduction in the vessel’s resistance. Before the start of any top class sailing regatta, the underwater surface of the yacht is cleaned to reduce fouling and, therefore, resistance. The application of UC2K MARINE COAT has the exact same effect. The vessel has less resistance, speed increases and Co2 emissions are reduced by at least 4%.
Surfaces sealed with UC2K MARINE COAT are easily cleaned, without any need for special cleaners, and are more resistant to new soiling. After treatment, dull and tired paintwork, chalky glass-fibre (GGFK) surfaces and cloudy anodised aluminium, gleam like new. Galvanised surfaces, such as aluminium, brass, copper and chrome, are protected long-term against corrosion. In addition, surfaces already coated with other products can be refreshed, sealed and protected on a long-term basis.
Due to UC2K MARINE COAT’s extremely thin minimum coating thickness (5-20μm), a coating capacity of approximately 30-60m2 can be achieved per 1Kg when applied to non-absorbent surfaces.
Just one coat of UC2K MARINE COAT delivers an extremely long lifespan and it can be ‘spot’ repaired if necessary. The product has no adverse effect on the original colour or composition of surfaces treated.
Long lasting durable clear coating with high protection against salt spray, UV sunlight corrosion, tar, acids, chemicals, dirt, fly rust and fouling.
High self-cleaning ability and 100% eco-friendly saves on daily and scheduled maintenance, labour, time and cleaning products. Dirt, fly rust and fouling no longer adhere to a treated surface.
No need for strong chemicals or solvents protects the environment as well as your assets.
Exceptional levels of protection against decolourisation from salt water and exposure to UV sunlight keep assets looking great and significantly reduces maintenance costs over a long period.
Permanent protection against graffiti, which is easily and quickly removed without using aggressive cleaning methods.
The transparent and colourless coating forms an anti-fingerprint layer, which protects your surfaces from corrosion, scratches and dirt.
“We are very happy with the finish on our life boats. It appears that even after 18 months of continuous exposure to salt water and UV sunlight there has been no visual degradation of the lifeboats’ surface which was treated in Unicoatings UC2K MARINE COAT.”
