MCU-Coatings is a global leading manufacturer of moisture cure urethane (MCU) marine and protective coatings to protect steel, concrete, aluminium, stainless steel and iron from corrosion. Currently, MCU is the fastest growing coating technology worldwide.
The primary reasons for the success of MCU-Coatings technology are the ease of application and its proven long term corrosion resistance, even when applied in less than perfect conditions.
Moisture cure urethane (MCU) corrosion protection coating
A typical MCU specification requires only three to four different, one-component products and only one thinner for all products to protect the entire vessel or offshore structure. Advantages of MCU technology include:
No pot life, no waste
Application possible up to 99% relative humidity
Tolerant to damp substrates
Tolerant to flash rusted or power tooled substrates
Resistant to rain or moisture within 30min of application
For these reasons MCU-Coatings guarantees the fastest possible project completion time.
Our systems are tested to the most demanding prequalification tests and passed NORSOK with rust-creep values below 3mm, even after 2.5 times the required exposure time (10,000hrs instead of 4,200hrs). Major offshore structures around the globe have tested and used MCU-Coatings extensively to protect their offshore structures from corrosion. From the cold climates of Alaska to high humidity areas in South East Asia, MCU-Coatings has been proven to outperform the well known plural component epoxy coating systems.
Well known users include BW Offshore, Ensco, Exxon, Shell, Wagenborg, Spliethoff, Boskalis, Dredging, Hual, and many others.
Worldwide supply of protective coatings
MCU-Coatings has representation in over 20 countries around the globe. Currently, MCU-Coatings is manufacturing in Belgium and setting up new manufacturing plants in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, India and Southeast Asia. Since MCU-Coatings only requires three to four different one-component products and one thinner to protect the entire offshore structure, we can easily and quickly supply coatings out of our stocks based in Ukraine, Dubai, India and Singapore.
Corrosion protection services
MCU-Coatings has a small mobile team of highly trained technical sales people who deliver full reported survey, cost estimation, MCU product specification and inspection to the company’s own Aviation Precision Standard (APS).
APS was developed because MCU-Coatings found that the current standards, such as IMO, ISO 9001 and Norsok, are too low and often not satisfactory to our customers. We not only report, we also work actively with the owner to find the best solution for optimal corrosion protection within the calculated budget and time.
Moisture cure urethane coatings
MCU-Coatings was the first to develop stable moisture cure urethane technology and is now also the first to develop a high solids environmentally friendly moisture cure urethane coating.
Epoxy coating and polyurethane paint informational video
The company has produced an introduction video that explains the technology, compares our coatings with plural component epoxy coating, polyurethane paint and inorganic coatings and demonstrates the possible application conditions. The video can be seen at our website.
