Our specialist high-performance protective coating solutions are used around the globe to protect coal-fired power plants and equipment from corrosion and erosion.

Our focus on total cost of ownership means you benefit from the longest possible service life and low overall costs. We also provide expert technical service, support and advice to make sure you get the optimum solution for every part of your plant. As a result, we are specified by most major EPC contractors and OEMs, and trusted by customers around the globe.

Trusted solutions for FGDs and other harsh environments
We offer a complete portfolio of coating solutions designed specifically for the aggressive industrial environments found in coal-fired power plants, and can protect your entire plant from the plant floor to the flue-gas desulfurizer, boiler tubes and chimney linings.

Our Versiline CUI coating, for example, delivers excellent protection against corrosion under insulation, and our high-performance Avantguard® coatings offer advanced protection against corrosion.

All our products are tailored to suit local needs, conditions and standards, and can be formulated to meet your specific needs.
