Advanced Polymer Coatings (APC) based in Avon, Ohio, USA, is a world leader in developing specialty coatings — MarineLine®, and ChemLine® — for high performance applications. These coatings protect against damage from corrosion and chemical attack, and provide safe storage and transport of chemicals and products whether on land or sea.
MarineLine® is the recognized industry leader in the marine industry, delivering a polymer lining system that protects cargo tanks of chemical and product tankers.
ChemLine® covers a family of industrial coatings used for over-the-road and rail transportation, tank (ISO) containers, tank storage and terminals, and equipment protection at chemical processing, petroleum & refining, and power generation facilities, and concrete and secondary containment protection.
APC’s range of unique coatings are 90% to 100% solids with extremely low VOCs. The technology is based on a cross-linked organic-inorganic polymer that far surpassed the corrosive deficiencies of conventional protective coatings and linings such as vinylesters, epoxies, rubbers, and phenolics, and also stainless steel. The coating system significantly improves anti-corrosion resistance and maintains product purity.
Following application, MarineLine® and ChemLine® coatings are forced hot air heat cured which results in a cross-linking of the polymers together into a tightly knit, extremely dense molecular structure. The hard smooth surface of the coating resists 98% of all corrosive acids, alkalis, solvents, gasses and materials at various temperatures. Extensive testing and years of field service in many industries have proven that MarineLine® and ChemLine® are superior to stainless steel, and epoxy and vinylester coatings. Advanced Polymer Coatings is based in near the heart of the world’s leading polymer research centers and testing facilities. Visit www.adv-polymer.com for more information.
