Jotun and Kansai Paint Bundle Activities
The global provider of marine coatings Jotun and Japanese coating supplier NOF Kansai Paint have signed an agreement to develop their existing alliance. The partners are now looking to emulate the success they’ve achieved in the Marine segment in the Protective Market.
Jotun and Kansai Marine Coatings signed an agreement forming the SeaStar Alliance in 2002, at this time, they had already worked together for many years and the alliance was a development inherent in that long co-operation.
The partnership has led to the development of antifouling brands such as SeaQuantum, which is now the world leader in antifouling based on Silyl technology. Over 10,000 vessels have received SeaQuantum applications, providing outstanding fouling protection and unparalleled hull performance for up to 90 months.
Jotun’s successful Hull Performance Solutions (HPS) fully complies with the ISO 19030 standard, prescribing practical methods for measuring changes in ship-specific hull and propeller performance.
Jotun sees the extension of this relationship as a natural evolutionary step. A collaborative approach to marine has paid huge dividends, sharing knowledge and use one another’s innovation and industry expertise to access opportunities and build a product portfolio of unparalleled quality.
The new agreement signed this fall, covers the global Protective segment. Jotun already has a strong worldwide position in the international market, providing high performance products for sectors such as: wind power, hydropower and thermal (energy); hospitals, stadiums and airports (infrastructure); offshore installations, refineries, petrochemical plants and gas processing facilities (hydrocarbon industry).
