Waterborne Systems for Offshore Engineering

Following an extensive tendering process Tikkurila Coatings were used by Emtunga AB to provide a paint solution for a living quarters module on an offshore platform in the Caspian Sea.

To achieve the most technically appropriate and environmentally sustainable solution, hybrid high solids waterborne systems were chosen that performed well immersed in salt water.

This hybrid water-borne system was used to achieve a total dry-film thickness of 280 μm. The system fulfilled the requirements of NORSOK, the toughest test in the industry, and the requirements of the standard ISO 20340 (Paints and varnishes – Performance requirements for protective paint systems for offshore and related structures).
