Expoxy Paint

Epoxy resins are formed by the reaction of an epoxide ("resin") with a curing agent (often referred to as a "hardener" or "activator"). This chemical reaction results in a strong, durable, and chemically resistant material.

Acrylic Paint

Acrylic paint is a type of fast-drying paint made of pigment suspended in acrylic polymer emulsion. It becomes water-resistant when dry. Acrylic paints are known for their versatility, as they can be used on various surfaces and mixed with different mediums to achieve different effects.

Marine-Grade Coatings

Marine-grade paint refers to a type of paint specifically formulated for use in marine environments, such as boats, ships, docks, and other marine structures. These paints are designed to withstand the harsh conditions found in marine environments, including exposure to saltwater, UV radiation, extreme temperatures, and constant moisture.
