Holywell Green, UK -- Pexa Ltd, a specialist materials supplier to the aerospace industry, has announced its expansion into the energy and industrial protective coatings market.
Pexa says its range of high-performance surface coatings and treatments is suitable for protection and maintenance of infrastructure related to the energy market. This includes oil & gas exploration and storage, power generation (including wind and wave power) and related infrastructure such as docks, bridges and buildings.
Pexa has also been appointed the exclusive distributor for MCU Coatings, a producer of moisture-cured urethane coatings. These products are based on high-performance polyurethane resin, which cures in contact with humidity to form a polyurea, whose performance exceeds that of two-component paint.
MCU coatings offer flexibility, UV resistance, corrosion resistance and fluid resistance, providing excellent long term protection for metallic and non-metallic structures for a huge range of severe conditions, says Pexa.
The products can be immersed in water within 30 minutes of application and can be applied in cold and wet conditions with no loss of performance.
"The MCU Coatings line offers a product for every high performance application. For example, MCU Zinc and MCU Miozinc offer excellent performance as a local "cold galvanising" process even in the most adverse conditions," said Jim Rowbotham, managing director of Pexa, in a company statement.
Morten Sorensen of MCU Coatings said, "The energy infrastructure in the UK and Ireland will be a very important area of business for us. Climatic conditions are hard on equipment in this region and Pexa's know how of very high performance surface coatings will provide the back up which users of our products need."
Pexa noted that it has already appointed its first approved applicator for the MCU Coatings system and is planning to provide nationwide coverage, teaming with highly qualified and trained application contractors.
