Primers/Ship paints

Effect pigments, aluminium pigments

The main purpose of primers is functional corrosion protection. The densely packed lamellar structure of the aluminium pigments in the coating layer greatly extends the diffusion paths for moisture and corrosive media, effectively protecting the coated metal from corrosion.

A typical application area for these types of primers are coatings for ships: Corrosion protection extends a ship’s service life and reduces costs (not only for the coating materials, but also, and primarily, for long layovers in dry dock).
