|Protective Coatings||MORE / LESS|
With more than half a century of experience in the Protective Coatings market, Altex has proven success in high performing heavy-duty industrial and offshore coatings technology, protecting steel, alloys and concrete from corrosion, chemical attack and abrasion.
Our product range includes Epoxies, Polyurethanes, Alkyds, Vinyls, Solventless Coatings, Waterbornes, Tank Coatings, Flooring Coatings and Intumescent Coatings.
We offer an extensive flooring product line consisting of high performance industrial flooring, decorative seamless (including quartz) systems and concrete repair products and have a broad range of solutions for virtually every industrial application.
Our long standing relationship with Leigh Paints, the suppliers of the internationally renowned Firetex range of Intumescent Coatings, allows us to provide coatings to protect steel structures in both conventional and hydro-carbon fires. Intumescent coatings function by expanding under the heat of a fire to form an insulating carbonised layer that dramatically delays the time it takes for steel to reach deformation temperature, thereby in the event of a fire, allowing more time for people to escape.
Altex Coatings Ltd has made a substantial investment and commitment to the development and licensing of world-class technology and brands for these markets.
|Commercial Marine||MORE / LESS|
Altex offers a complete line of marine paints and coatings for all areas of vessels, including ballast and cargo tanks, decks and high abrasion areas for both above and below the waterline. We service many deep sea fleets trading in Australasian waters as well as the diverse range of coastal vessels including cargo, barges, tugs, dredges, ferries and fishing fleets.
Our extensive experience allows us to formulate coatings and antifoulings for the harsh marine environment. Ease of application, tolerance to dock and slipway conditions, along with long life performance are standard criteria applied to all our development programmes for marine products and the systems our specifiers recommend.
With a large focus on customer support, Altex provides a commercial marine assistance programme that includes:
- Dockside technical service
