Durepox

durepox

Durepox is a unique marine paint. It can be used as a high-build, a primer and a topcoat all in one, saving litres and hence kilograms worth of paint layers – making your boat lighter and therefore (importantly!) faster in the water.

It’s an epoxy urethane which means it’s extremely hard while still being flexible and highly durable – perfect for the marine environment (as well as an array of other applications). Durepox has superior adhesion to carbon fibre, fibreglass, wood and concrete. Professional boat builders / painters value Durepox’s fast dry properties, sandability after three hours with no shrink back, and the ability to apply a further coats without sanding between dry times.

Durepox is used as a topcoat on racing boats because it has an excellent ability to provide a water barrier and withstand the harsh affects of the weather and marine environment. In results done by Otago Flume Laboratory they found that its satin finish gave a 15% less drag coefficient that a high gloss surface.

Durepox finishes are commonly used on the hull and deck of many boats competing prestigious races like Volvo Ocean Race and previous America’s Cups. Seven of the twelve boats in the Louis Vuitton Cup and the America’s Cup defender all sported Durepox finishes.

As a ‘top of the range primer’, Durepox not only provides a workable stable base onto which 2 part systems may be confidently applied but is also excellent for preparing a solid foundation for top quality Alkyd, Nitro-cellulose and Acrylic Lacquer finishes.

Durepox requires a 4:1 mix ratio of base to reactor and also needs to be reduced according to application specific conditions.

The Durepox Reactor, or Hardener, is a clear colourless aliphatic polyisocyanate resin solution used as the hardener component for Durepox. This hardener is designed to reduce critical recoat time, increase dry time and improve chemical resistance.

hypershield

Hypershield® was developed as a highly flexible, single pack acrylic-urethane clear coating for vinyl curtaining and other flexible surfaces. Hypershield® cures to a hard but flexible finish which is easy to clean. The highly flexible nature of Hypershield® (even when the vinyl is stretched) means that it has also become a favourite among sign writers as a sealer after sign writing or on plain unpainted vinyl curtains and to increase the life of the PVC’s, vinyls and digital prints.

Did you know that your digital print only has a 1 year warranty with cold laminates? Hypershield® will extend the image life for up to 5yrs? UV and chemical inhibitors offer maximum resistance greatly extending colour life of your graphics and vinyl’s.

Hypershield® can now be tinted proving additional scope for vinyl advertising. The new Vinylside Basecoat system used in conjunction with Hypershield® now gives manufacturers a quick, cost effective way of adding colour and design with UV protection.
