Covestro launched the Pasquick™ concept at the Corrosion and Prevention Conference in New Zealand on the 14th November to a great reception with Richard Shen (AD – Infrastructure & Onsite Wood Coatings APAC) presenting a paper on New Generation Coatings for Protection with Polyaspartics. The paper also paid close attention to the Auckland Harbour Bridge trial in which from June 2008 till July 2013, various systems based moisture curing urethane and polyaspartics had been applied.
The purpose of the trial was to evaluate paint systems based upon either moisture cured urethane and 2K polyaspartic and to assess whether systems based on the latter would improve weathering performance and productivity. After 5 years of exposure, the panels were evaluated for performance and it was concluded that a 2K polyaspartic system fared just as well as the typical standard 3K system.
The Australasian Corrosion Association is a not-for-profit membership association which disseminates information on corrosion and its prevention and control, by providing training, seminars, conferences, publications and other activities.
Covestro creates close collaboration and joint innovation with its customers and partners and aligning with the right audience helps to create long-term value for Covestro. Peter Caley, Sales Manager of Covestro had the following to say about the paper: “The paper presented to the audience of the ACA an ideal opportunity to provide an update on the success of Pasquick™ technology on the Auckland Harbour Bridge, with particular emphasis on the very low VOC content of the system and increased productivity for the applicator.”
Covestro Australia’s Pasquick™ presentation road trip will continue to other organisations around Australia and is the key in our strategy to make the world a brighter place.
