Owatrol ALU (formally Owatrol GLV) is a highly flexible, anti-corrosive coating with a high gloss finish that possesses the deeply penetrating and adhesion properties of Marine Oil so the finish will not peel or flake and will even adhere well to clean, bright steel. Owatrol ALU marine aluminum paint will restore rusted and corroded surfaces to an acceptable appearance to give lasting protection and greatly prolong the life of the treated surface. It has excellent resistance to the effects of the weather and does not emit harmful fumes so can be applied even in confined spaces.
With excellent abrasion resistance, Owatrol ALU can withstand a chemical attack and is ideal in aggressive climatic conditions where a highly resistant finish is necessary. Originally developed for the shipping industry Owatrol ALU became a favorite cargo hold coating; carrying approval for the carriage of grain. It can withstand temperatures up to 347°F (175°C) once cured and offers excellent light and heat reflecting properties.
Owatrol ALU leaves a highly elastic surface which will not crack or peel and galvanized surfaces do not require weathering or pickling first. Sand or shot-blasted surfaces don’t even need an immediate application as a light coating of rust will not affect performance or the finished result.
Ideal Uses for Owatrol ALU marine aluminum paint
- Coating aluminum, steel and galvanized surfaces above the waterline
- Protecting already rusted tanks and machinery
- Resisting damage in aggressive climatic conditions
- Resisting weathering effects on pipes and pumps
- Providing long-lasting protection against corrosion for new steelwork
