Coating testing, Singapore Sea Harbour, of Griekspoor TOPCOAT®-CCR+ and TOPCOAT®-Ceramic+
Griekspoor Thermal Coatings, specialised in hydraulic rod coatings, has accomplished an endurance test in the sea harbour of Singapore. The rods were hung on a steel wire in the tide zone for 18 months (February 2016 - August 2017). This means 18 months long a test cycle of 6 hours under water and 6 hours above the water line, with an average temperature of more than 30oC.
After this testing period both rods were fully covered with fouling. Singapore is notorious because of its aggressive fouling. After removing this fouling, a stain- and corrosion free coating surface appeared for both coatings.
