Protective CoatingsProducts that guarantee success.
While Sigma Coatings' protective coatings have applications across a wide range of industrial sectors, there are specific areas in which we offer outstanding levels of technological expertise, product superiority and dedicated technical field support.
Oil and gas industry environments promote a variety of corrosion types. These environments can lead to expensive corrosion failures with associated downtime and costs. Sigma Coatings has developed a range of heavy-duty protective coatings and linings to protect against the majority of these types of corrosion.
Advanced Sigma epoxy tank-lining technology protects tanks from corrosion and aggressive chemicals and cargoes from contamination in storage.
Infrastructure & Transport is one of the most diversified markets in all respects and this is certainly true for protective coatings. Among the extensive list of steel- and concrete structures that need to be protected in this segment are bridges, tidal defense zones, port facility structures, water- and waste treatment plants, and steel building structures.
Sigma Coatings was one of the first coatings brands to develop products to meet the very specific needs of the power industry. We offer a full range of coating solutions, providing protection across all sectors within the Power Industry such as nuclear, wind power, and hydropower plants around the globe.
Extreme offshore climatic conditions are some of the harshest that any coating system will meet. Sigma Coatings' leading edge epoxy technology offers the powerful anti-corrosive coatings performance that such situations demand. Protective coatings for offshore structures can provide effective protection in sub-zero North Sea temperatures, or the heat and humidity of the Gulf.
