Kansai Plascon offers internal and external corrosion-protection systems for tank lining and other hazardous environments in the petrochemical and refinery industry. These coatings offer ideal protection against various fuel types.
The specialist coatings manufacturer and supplier has been involved with the petrochemical and refinery industry since the mid-1970s, points out Mike Byrd, National Protective Coatings Specification Manager at Kansai Plascon.
“We assess sights for asset owners in the petrochemical and related refinery sector, compile reports on our findings, and then provide corrosion-protection solutions specific to each scenario,” Byrd explains. “We offer a 360° guarantee, in addition to monitoring all progress.”
Specialist coating products supplied to this sector are Plascoline 1000 internal lining, Plascotuff 3000 primer, Plascotuff MIO intermediate coating, and Plascothane 9000 topcoat. In addition, the Protective Coatings division offers technical and aftermarket support, as well as project management.
“We go to great lengths to support and supply our customers, including new product developments. Kansai Plascon has always been at the forefront of coatings development, as we expand our product range with new technologies,” Byrd highlights.
“Our custom-made solutions extend the life of essential infrastructure in the petrochemical industry by protecting tanks, piping and structural steel from corrosion. By keeping such infrastructure serviceable, these operations run continuously, with no costly stoppages and downtime, which translates into constant production rates,” he concludes.
In 2012, the company formerly known as Plascon South Africa was renamed Kansai Plascon, after a merger with Japanese company Kansai Paint, the world’s sixth-largest coatings company. Kansai Plascon continues to champion the Plascon brand as it expands into Africa as one of the continent’s top coatings companies.
