The Polyglass range of materials was originally developed to create a spray-applied protective coating which offered all the performance advantages of a flake glass filled system, together with improved ease and speed of application.
Over the years, the Polyglass range has expanded to include different formulations developed to meet specific application requirements.
Today, these products are used throughout the industrial world, to protect components as diverse as offshore process vessels, pipelines, structural steel and even hospital hot water tanks.
Polyglass has proven highly effective in extremely corrosive environments. Specially formulated to give optimum ease of application and short cure cycles, Polyglass offers a remarkably low permeation rate, combined with excellent resistance to abrasion and cathodic disbondment. The inherent durability and undercutting resistance of this high performance coating enables it to remain intact, even when damaged through to the metal substrate, with negligible under-film creep.
Polyglass requires no primer although a primer can be provided where logistics demand. It is easy to apply, cures quickly and can be applied in single coat applications.
It provides an extremely tough, long life, highly corrosion and chemical resistant lining with quick cure times.
Polyglass can be used on a wide variety of substrates including steel and concrete, and has been used for protection in the offshore, oil and petrochemical, power generation, marine, water/sewerage and process industries.
Polyglass materials can be used with standard airless spray set-ups, plural component systems and for small areas with conventional gun and pressure pot. Polyglass materials cure at low temperatures and can be used at ambient temperatures as high as 40°C. Single coat applications, quick cure times and simple application can reduce down time significantly and total life cycle costs, compared with conventional paint and coating systems, can be reduced by up to 60%.
ECR glass flake imparts better qualities to Polyglass than standard glass flakes and in conjunction with highly modified resin systems provides a very low permeation, mechanically strong, tough and abrasion resistant coating with outstanding long-term performance.
Polyglass is produced with a specially manufactured micro-flake using extra corrosion resistant (ECR) glass.
