Protective metal coatings to face the elements

Protective metal coatings to face the elements

Wether it concerns electricity poles, coils, gas canisters or drilling platforms, they all have to withstand the elements or frequent handling. This requires metal coatings with exceptional performance and Stahl delivers just that. Our polymer technologies protect metal products and outdoor constructions against damage and corrosion, while meeting safety standards and regulation. 

Anti-corrosive, resistant and safe coating technologies

One of the main challenges for metal surfaces is preventing corrosion. Stahl Polymers provides resins that are alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEO)-free. This enables alternative solutions that protect metal products and constructions from the oxidizing effects of water and humidity. This ensures their long-time high-performance functionality. At the same time, metal or metal-coated products face a lot of heavy-duty handling. Think of gas canisters or bottles or industrial drums, which require a hard, scratch-resistant coating. Water-based acrylic polymers are a vital component of chemical resistance properties required for industrial coatings that also retains their flexibility. We even design polymeric solutions that withstand the extreme conditions of a marine environment. Thanks to the versatility in polymer technologies we offer, compatibility and easy formulating, we can provide resin solutions with excellent results. Resins that offer protection for metal surfaces with high gloss, high scratch and abrasion resistance, with high flexibility and extremely high chemical resistance. 

Working with Stahl as partner for metal coating solutions

Stahl’s expertise in responsible chemistry has helped us become a rapid market leader in the field of metal coatings with a portfolio of acrylics and polyurethanes that are leading in performance. Additionally, we provide direct technical service to even our small-scale clients as we value each equally and understand their pressing needs for the right fit technologies. With first class resins, we can help formulate coatings that create hard surfaces with resistant film that leaves no cracks and holes, ensuring durable and long-term protection. As we produce locally, we can also provide fast services.
