A New Era in Marine Coatings

Chemco International is a world leader in innovative coating solutions in the Marine Coatings industry with over 30 years experience in the design and manufacture of unique, state of the art technology.

In recent years, the high cost of grit blasting and grit disposal, as well as strict environmental control necessary for the application of conventional paint systems, has forced the industry to look at alternative surface preparation methods and consequently, for products which can be applied on damp/wet substrates.

Utilising truly wet & rust tolerant coating technology, Chemco’s Marine Coatings will enormously reduce the cost and duration of all contracts. Many forward thinking companies throughout the world have been utilising these technological breakthrough systems for more than 10 years with complete success.

It is through the most advanced coating systems that we can now not only comply with all legal legislations and help the environment, but reduce the cost of maintenance as well as life cycle cost.

Chemco uniquely guarantee lower cost and coating performance for any application: patch repair, complete refurbishment or New Build.
