Marine Coatings Review —PRC (continued from page 47) as heads, galleys, and mess decks.

It has proved itself again and again as a low-cost, minimal maintenance system for living spaces. Proreco I polyurethane coating provides an attractive, high-gloss appearance coupled with the long-wearing capability and flexibility to withstand structural movement, impact and abrasion, with extended corrosion control.

PRC developed the first one-part polysulfide marine caulk many years ago. Through high techno- logical research and development facilities, PRC continues to de- velop superior coatings and seal- ants to meet most high-perform- ance requirements for such products above and below the waterline.

Some of Seaguard's more recent products include the following:

Balcoat 2000 is an all-purpose, single-component, rust-inhibitive compound that can be applied to marginally prepared surfaces. In- tended for use in dry voids and ballast tanks, it should not be used in tanks containing petro- leum products.

No Rust 1000 HS is a high-sol- ids, single-component, rust-inhibi- tive compound formulated to dry hard. It is said to be excellent for exterior/interior application over marginally prepared surfaces for extended protection.

Fire-retardant latex is a non- emissive, fire-retardant, general purpose paint that is both protec- tive and decorative. It is intended for application as a fire-protective coating for steel, aluminum, and non-metallic substrates. Wherever possible, this coating should be ap- plied over a surface that has been degreased, and primed to promote adhesion.

Silcoguard 600 Series is a high- performance, silicone alkyd gloss enamel that gives excellent weather resistance, gloss and color retention over long periods, and easily cleaned surfaces.

Seaguard also carries Seawash1, a water-based, biodegradable, non- flammable non-toxic cleaner for petroleum-based products. It takes on the toughest marine cleaning jobs, and is available in 55-gallon drums and a handy 5-gallon pail.

Sermatech International of Moss

Point, Miss., is a producer and ap- plicator of corrosion-resistant coat- ings for marine/offshore, aero- space, and industrial activities.

There are eight Sermatech pro- cessing facilities worldwide for rapid service delivery.

These coating systems for ma- rine/offshore and industrial uses are generally multi-layered, com- posite coatings comprising base coats of heat-cured ceramic-metal- lic material, overcoated with a sealant designed to meet the envi- ronmental conditions in which the part is to be installed.

Sermatech's 725 and 1141 sys- tems have proven the equal of most exotic corrosion-resistant materials in the marine environ- ment, but because they are sacri- ficial, have none of the corrosion- promoting properties of expensive
