Jotun Coatings Solves Repair and maintenance Challenges

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

Leveraging cross-industry knowledge and experience to deliver optimal anticorrosive coatings, Jotun once again widens the technology gap with Jotamastic 90 - a step change in high-tech surface tolerant coating solutions.


Jotamastic is the leader in advanced epoxy mastic technology. 25 years of experience in both marine and protective environments have proven Jotamastic to be the market's first choice for lasting protection on aged steel and surfaces without optimal preparations, thus saving time and money during the maintenance process. Providing an undisputed ability to penetrate deep into the surface creates superior adhesion and therefore long lasting protection. Each product in the Jotamastic range is designed to offer specific benefits to meet different requirements for exposure and lifetime expectations.


  • The new generation: Jotamastic 90


The new Jotamastic 90 is one of the most technologically advanced surface tolerant repair and maintenance primers in the market. Jotamastic 90 is a highly durable coating featuring benefits such as exceptional corrosion resistance, shorter overcoating intervals, wider top coat compatibility and increased colour flexibility using Jotun’s Multi Colour Industry (MCI) tinting system. “The new Jotamastic 90 utilizes modern technology and materials providing excellent wetting properties, ensuring even better surface penetration and adhesion to the substrate and resulting in a durable solution “,  says Lasse Isaksen, Product Manager Anticorrosives at Jotun Coatings.

Jotamastic 90 has exceptional corrosion resistance and is suitable for the most severe environments. It has reduced drying time by up to 40% compared to existing products, thus reducing downtime and overcoating intervals. Jotamastic 90 offers compatibility with most topcoats, including polysiloxanes and two-component acrylics. The multicolour possibility of Jotamastic 90 also proves significant improvement of hiding power for strong coloured topcoats. Improved wetting and penetrating abilities also give better intercoat adhesion. “Jotamastic 90 can be used over most generic types of coatings and within the Jotamastic range, solutions can be tailored to specific requirements for exposure and durability,” says Isaksen.


  • Invest today for future returns


Investment in corrosion protection is about calculating the cost of the coating over the lifetime of a project. The right decisions at new building stage and the correct choice of surface preparation and coating system for maintenance and repair is the key to maximize protection and optimize the return on investment. According to Isaksen different coatings have different lifetimes. “The Jotamastic range offers great potential for savings through lower surface preparation costs, and is one of the market’s most durable solutions compared with other surface tolerant epoxies,” he says. He adds: “Investing in the right coating system today will yield future returns. The achievements will be lower maintenance costs, longer lifetime and better protection of your property”
