AquaCoat is your guarantee for long-term durability, a minimum of maintenance and an optimum operational solution.

AquaCoat is a water-based coating which is used for corrosion protection of steel with its new sophisticated combination of chemistry and process technology and is especially well-suited for sheet metal.

The coating appears as a black silky matt surface which can be used as is or as an excellent primer for a subsequent coating.

Compared with other surface treatments and their related chemistry and waste products, waste from the AquaCoat process is minimal and the process has no toxic gas emissions. This ensures an eco-friendly process.

AquaCoat is applied by immersing the items in a series of vessels in a coherent process. First, the items are cleaned of oil and rust. This cleaning is carried out by means of ultrasound and eco-friendly chemicals. The items are then immersed into the coating baths at a temperature of only 20°C. The coating is an autophoresis process where the chemicals build up a layer of 25-35 μm on the items. The items are then hardened at 180°C in an oven.

The AquaCoat coating appears as a black silky matt surface which can be used as is. It is also well-suited as a primer for subsequent painting. Painting can be powder coating, wet paint, etc. which will extend durability even further. The coating is UV resistant and resists many years' exposure in the open. The AquaCoat coating is typically able to resist a 750-1000 hours' saline spray test and is ideal for use in the shipbuilding and offshore industries.

AquaCoat is also used in the automobile, wind turbine and military industries, in health care, agriculture and for surface treatment of entertainment elements such as safety bars on go-carts or soccer goals.

DOT handles item sizes of:

  • 2700 mm (length)
  • 1400 mm (height)
  • 800 mm (width)
  • Op til 400 kg
A greener alternative

Compared with other surface treatments and their related chemistry and waste products, the AquaCoat process has minimum waste. The coating is water-based which means that it consumes less energy than traditional galvanizing and does not emit any gases during the process. As a result, AquaCoat is a greener alternative with lower overall CO2 emissions.
