Performance coating for automotive and marine industries
High performance coatings (HPC) products in general are essential for a broad range of markets, including transportation, buildings and infrastructure, industrial and consumer goods. Their main purpose is thus, to increase durability and improve performance of surfaces, objects and products. High performance coating Singapore is common in everything from ships, cars, aircraft, yachts and architectural components (structural steel, building products, flooring) to consumer goods (mobile devices, appliances, beverage cans, furniture) and industrial installations such as oil and gas facilities and wind turbines on shore and off shore.
High performance coatings are designed to perform to the highest standards, but also deliver on aesthetics, with world leading colour technologies, colour matching and trends research, as well as expertise in surface treatments for consumer goods such as furniture, home appliances and mobile devices in Singapore.
Performance coating categories
Performance coatings include all paint products which increase performance and durability of structures and surfaces in for example the automotive and marine industries. The products are essential for customers in a broad range of markets, including transportation, buildings and infrastructure, industrial and consumer goods. They are used by customers across the world to protect and enhance everything from ships, cars, aircraft, yachts and architectural components (structural steel, building products, flooring) to consumer goods (mobile devices, appliances, beverage cans, furniture) and industrial installations such as oil and gas facilities and wind turbines.
The term includes at least the following coatings:
- Marine coatings
- Metal coatings
- Protective coatings
- Powder coatings
- Specialty coatings
- Vehicle refinishes
- Wood coatings
HPC | High performance coating prices
Some HPC coatings are rather complex to apply; therefore, some cases require a professional high performance coatings applicator who most often also provides the coating. Due to this the product price is often more or less included into the price of the complete application. When looking for a suitable performance coating and professional applicator, it is often wise to ask for several quotes and compare prices.
Some HPC coatings are however, meant for smaller applications and are therefore, sold in smaller volumes for consumers. These performance coatings mainly consist of vehicle refinishes and high temperature ceramic coatings for example for engines and exhausts. Also boat coatings such as topside paint and antifouling systems are available.
An industrial coating is a paint or coating defined by its protective, rather than its aesthetic properties, although it can provide both. The most common use of industrial coatings is for corrosion control of steel or concrete. Industrial coatings cover a very large range of diverse uses for coatings with many differing requirements and functions. Some of the sectors covered are given below:
- Aircraft and aerospace coatings
- Automotive and vehicle refinish
- Can coatings
- Coatings for plastics
- Coil coatings
- General industrial
- High performance
- Intumescent coatings
- Wood finishes
High performance coatings
These are also known as protective coatings. These are the coatings applied to structural steelwork such as bridges, oil and gas rigs, structures such as stadiums and warehouses and chemical plants. These coatings are designed to have both high corrosion resistance and also good cosmetic appearance. These coatings will resist adverse weather, corrosive atmospheres and chemicals and they will provide durability to structures. In this sector coatings will have to meet a wide range of requirements through specifications and standards before they can be used. Equally important to their long term performance is the preparation of the substrate and good application practices.
