Upstream offshore

Your key coating challenges

Whether you’re working on new constructions or ongoing maintenance on upstream installations, your environment is aggressive, constantly changing and corrosive. Crashing waves, extreme temperatures, and atmospheric pressure can make it difficult to ensure the best protective coating. At the same time, varying safety and regulatory requirements make it challenging to ensure efficient application across your global operations.

Extreme corrosion protection for your most extreme environments

Whether you need extreme performance, extreme efficiency, or both, we have the right solution to meet your needs.

During new constructions, our new galvanic coatings, based on organic zinc epoxy resins, can seriously boost painting productivity. You can also get expert advice from our global specification team. With 15 research and development facilities around the world, we work locally with you to ensure the best solution for your project and that all environmental responsibilities are met.
