The cost of corrosion

Corrosion costs the Australian economy approximately AU$13 billion per annum as iron and steel tries to morph back to its original state. Most of Australia’s assets are located in marine environments which further exacerbates the problem of corrosion. One of the most effective and economical ways to combat corrosion is through the application of protective coatings. Most manmade structures have some form of coating to protect itself against nature and the elements.

KAEFER specialises in the application of protective coatings. The selection of coatings is vast and ranges from single component enamels to two pack epoxies and polyurethanes to high performance plural component elastomers. It is vital that the right coating system is chosen to protect your asset, but equally important is the requirement to have it applied correctly. A well specified and applied coating system will provide effective protection for many years enhancing the life of your asset.

KAEFER’s commitment to the proper application of protective coatings systems is second-to-none. Our fully trained and experience applicators are supported by NACE qualified inspectors and backed by an experienced project management team.
