Industrial CoatingsWe have made a conscious decision to move completely away from solvent based paint systems and this has meant a considerable amount of research and development in order to develop successful water based alternatives in the Industrial area.
It is only recently that global resin manufacturers have been able to provide product that can be made into single and two pack paint products that are able to be used easily and as a direct replacement for older solvent based paint. Even then the formulating of these water based products is difficult however we now have a good understanding of how to achieve this and we can release water based Epoxy and Polyurethane paint systems to the market.
Industrial Coating Products
TUFF COTE DTM PRIMERA waterborne direct-to-metal anti-corrosive primer with excellent adhesion (typically to iron, steel, aluminium, zinc, copper and brass). Designed as a general industrial primer and interior topcoat for light to medium wear industrial applications. With excellent adhesion and fast set-up time, this product is an excellent replacement for solvent-borne metal primers. Adopting European WB resin technologies, TUFF COTE DTM is formulated to have fast block-resistance and low VOC level (< 50 g/L).
With excellent adhesion and protection to various metals, TUFF COTE DTM is especially designed to protect metallic surfaces. It is used as a primer and may be used as a top coat where uv-exposure and yellowing are not critical. As a primer, it is ideal for machine components (under the bonnet parts & underbodies), concrete reinforcements, and difficult metals (brass and copper). For top coats, COTEC offers a range of products that are compatible with TUFF COTE DTM. E.g. EVO 100% Acrylic Gloss, Aquatec LP, Epotec High Build Epoxy, Tuff Floor WB Epoxy and Tuff Cote Finish. Please contact our representatives for further details.

Many floors and walls require a non porous, chemically inert and abrasion resistant finish. Such places include hospitals, schools, restaurants, abattoirs, milking sheds, dairy factories, the chemical industry and other medium to heavy industries. Tuff Floor WB Epoxy flooring paint is just the product for these areas. Tuff Floor has been used on the production and warehousing floor areas in food manufacturing, salmon farming, chemical blending, retail showrooms, car showrooms and workshops and high use public venues such as the Auckland Vector Arena and has proven to be an excellent performer in all these areas. Coupled with the Tuff Floor WB sealer and Tuff Floor WB Levelling compound, the Tuff Floor epoxy system will give a high performance flooring system to suit most applications. Coating Technologies Ltd are happy to work with applicators, design architects, concrete specialists and anyone with a concrete flooring problem to find the best option to fit the project requirement.
TUFF COTE FINISHTuff Cote Finish is a water based polyurethane topcoat with excellent toughness, adhesion, gloss retention and mar resistance. This product can be used by itself (single pack) or combined with Diamond Hardener (2-pack system) to form a highly durable coating suitable for medium to heavy industrial applications. With excellent adhesion and fast set-up time, this product is a replacement for solvent-borne polyurethanes with significant reduction in VOC emissions. Adopting European WB resin technologies, TUFF COTE Finish is formulated to be air-dried, or forced-dried at low temperature (below 60oC).
TUFF COTE Finish is designed to work with Diamond Hardener, to produce a topcoat with high durability, impact resistance and chemical resistance. TUFF COTE Finish is designed to go over a wide variety of primers, including GALVANISED IRON PRIMER, EPS-10 ETCH PRIMER and TUFF COTE DTM. See next page or the specification sheet for further details. To achieve a smooth finish, airless spraying is highly recommended. However, this product can also be applied by a brush or roller over small areas.
TUFF COTE FINISH 2K WB URETHANETuff Cote Finish WB 2K Urethane is a 2 pack water based polyurethane top coat for general interior and exterior use where excellent toughness and durability are required. Replacing older solvent based urethanes, these new water based versions offer the same high performance but without the odour and need for solvent to clean up.
Tuff Cote Finish is designed to be used over a wide range of substrates and primers. Typical uses included high quality finishing of machinery and timber joinery and cabinetry.
