Du Pont

  • According to a new, color brochure from the Du Pont Company's marine finishes group, a carefully planned program of marine maintenance painting coupled with high-performance finishing systems can save shipowners time, trouble and money in the long run.

    Entitled "Innovations In Corrosion Control with Du Pont Marine Finishes," the brochure is the result of long experience in preventing corrosion at more than 100 Du Pont chemical plants and with the company's large fleet of inland and oceangoing ships and barges. The company has been active in the marine maintenance painting field for more than 40 years.

    The brochure contains information on Du Pont high-performance finishes such as "Imron" polyurethane enamels, "Ganicin" zinc-rich primers, and "Corlar" two-component epoxy enamels.
