Today with the ever increasing need to maximise the safety of all operators in these industries Altex Coatings and Carboline are very committed to minimising environmental effects during the painting process. The continued development of waterborne, solvent free and low V.O.C. (volatile organic compounds) products is a major part of this process.
This development incorporates zinc coatings such as Carbozinc 11 WB, a water based inorganic zinc rich primer deigned to protect structural steel by galvanically eliminating sub film corrosion and complying with very low V.O.C. requirements, available soon through Altex. Being launched in November are Carboguard 635, a quick turn around versatile Epoxy and early new year Carboguard 690, a versatile Phenalkamine Epoxy.
Together, Altex Coatings and Carboline can offer local manufacturing, local knowledge and local technical support for globally available products with world class technology. Adding Carboline to their range is in line with Altex’s serious commitment to quality and excellence with an unwavering focus in providing high performance protective coatings making Altex Coatings a leader in their field.
