Master Builders Solutions, a BASF brand, has launched MasterProtect 9000, a coating system for offshore and marine structures. The coating system is based on a hard wearing high-build hydrophobic PU membrane which provides protection for two main critical areas of the offshore structure: the splash zone and the submerged part of the foundations.
Additional properties of the system are chemical and mechanical resistance and high flexibility. The hydrophobic properties protect the steel structure from the aggressive impact of seawater. The chemical and mechanical resistance of the product are fit to withstand severe attack by waves, abrasion and impacts, especially affecting the splash zone. The high flexibility ensures that the barrier will not crack and will keep its. The full system can be applied in only one day. The system has been tested by the accredited independent Fraunhofer institute in accordance with the international standards NORSOK M-501 and ISO 20340.
