ISO 12944

The international standard for comparing coating performance in corrosive environments

ISO 12944 is the main international standard for corrosion of steel and paint, and we consider it one of the essential standards for selecting the most adequate Hempel coating system to protect your structures against corrosion. As our quality management also meets the ISO 9001 standard, we supply consistent quality globally.
