In shipbuilding, high-quality surface finishing products are in demand for protecting and finishing wood, metal and other interior and exterior surfaces. An important prerequisite is IMO certification (or MED certification according to Directive 2014/90/EU). The International Maritime Organization (IMO) prescribes a test for low flammability (IMO FTP Code Part 5) and partly for smoke density and toxicity (IMO FTP Code Part 2). For commercially used ships, yachts and boats only approved paints may be used. In addition, insurance companies often require IMO certification, for example for private yachts. The approval is recognizable by the steering wheel symbol and the certification number. Teknos offers a complete range of fillers, primers, topcoats and clearcoats that are IMO-certified and tested and approved for shipbuilding.
A particularly versatile solution for interior and exterior surfaces is the ALPOCRYL Line which has excellent adhesion properties and can be used on a wide range of substrates including wood, MDF, chipboard, metal, plastic and even glass. Within the ALPOCRYL Line we offer a solvent-based 2C-polurethane top coat which is suitable as a coating in coating system for mixing equipments. This permits the mixture of almost any color.
