Gearing Up For Success In China

Posted On : Monday, February 6th, 2012 in News

In order to support our growing customer base in China, two years ago we completed our network of licensees in the country. Now, thanks to their growing knowledge of Corrocoat products and techniques all have built up solid experience and have become strong advocates of our technologies, which in turn have lead to healthy order books.

Typical of this is Dalian Maxthon High-Tech Co Ltd.  Based in Dalian, a major industrial centre and seaport in north east China, the company has become the preferred supplier of anti-corrosion solutions to several of the ship building, manufacturing, petrochemicals and oil refining businesses in the area.

In a recent contract for CNPC – one of China’s largest manufacturers of petrochemical products – Dalian Maxathon were contracted to refurbish and protect a large number of refinery cooling system pipe boxes.

The pipe boxes were blast cleaned to ISO 8501 – Cleanliness Standard Sa 2½ before being protected against further corrosion with Polyglass VEF, applied to an average dry film thickness CHecked by a spark test.

Polyglass VEF was the ideal choice for this contract as it has a proven track record of protecting similar components against water and chemical damage. Many similar refurbishments completed by Corrocoat are still in operation after more than 25 years in service.

“Our technical teams have been actively working with our licensees in China and their hard work is certainly starting to pay off,” said Rob Cole, Sales & Business Development Director. “Our vision is to be closer to our customers in order to respond efficiently to their requirements. China is a fast growing market for us with significant opportunities and we look forward to continued progress.”
