The unique combination of special application tools and outstanding properties of the Humidur® coating makes Acotec the perfect partner for the protection of offshore platforms and wind power infrastructure. Application methods such as mobile cofferdams for the splash zone or rope access can be offered. Humidur® coatings can be applied to the whole structure and are resistant against CUI.
Offshore platforms and windmills are subject to aggressive marine corrosion from the low water zone up to the atmospheric zone. Heavy-duty performance coatings are needed to successfully stop corrosion. Furthermore, severe safety restrictions are in effect limiting application procedures. Also, disruption to any activity needs to be kept to a minimum. All these difficulties are overcome by Acotec. Acotec offers both coatings and solutions for the application in the offshore such as special rope access in the splash and atmospheric zone, tubular cofferdams for safe and dry access to piles (splash and submerged zone), customized cofferdams for when the pile cannot be accessed in one time, … Moreover, Acotec supervises the application of Humidur® ensuring the quality of both the application procedure and the coating. In this way, Acotec can offer insured warranties up to 10 years, unavailable elsewhere in the industry.
The Humidur® coatings do not only have outstanding properties, but are very versatile in terms of application: they have proven to perform excellent even under minimal surface preparation; they can be sprayed, brushed and rolled onto the surface. Humidur® is a primerless system that can be applied in one coat and is able of curing under water. In other words, the coating can come into contact with water right after application. Another advantage of Humidur® is that it can be used for a wide variety of applications in the offshore, from structural piles, water intakes, to crane booms.
