An Awlgrip(®) team of experts will be providing advice on getting a professional yacht finish at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show, 24th – 27th September 2008. Visitors to the Awlgrip stand will be offered information on the technically innovative range of Awlgrip coatings, developed to provide any yacht with a spectacular and lasting finish.
Details will be available for the full range of products including AWL(®)Coat TPC, which has proven to protect a yacht’s painted surface against light damage, coating overspray and a wide range of contaminants. This water-based coating is particularly suited to offering temporary protection during assembly, production, sea trials and transit.
Information on the latest Awlfair(®) L.W. Epoxy Trowelable Fairing Compound, which was introduced at last year’s Monaco Yacht Show will also be provided. The fairing compound boasts reduced overall working time for the applicator due to ease of mixing, applying and sanding.
The Awlgrip team will be on hand to discuss its latest coatings with a low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) content, for applicators seeking products with reduced emissions. Details will be available on the coatings, Awlgrip(®) 345 HS Primer and Awlgrip(®) HS Topcoat, which are currently available on limited launch. Both products are compliant with European regulations, with a low VOC content of less than 340g/L.
The formulation of the 345 HS Primer reduces application time due to a high build film that enables the product to be applied in just one to two coats with outstanding coverage, resulting in a smooth, almost glossy finish.
The HS Topcoat is based on modern resin technology to achieve the renowned high gloss finish and exceptional durability-matching that of other Awlgrip finishes. The coating has superb flow and levelling characteristics for excellent clarity of reflection.
From September, yards and applicators will also be able to access a new series of Awlgrip health and safety videos along with supporting guidance notes for training and support purposes at www.awlgrip.com. Visitors to the stand will be able to view a new style Awlgrip website, which will screen the videos during the Show.
The guidance materials will provide practical steps covering the various stages involved in the painting process, from preparation through to application and inspection of the finished coating system.
