GulfCoat® Corrosion Products
Aerosol and Spray Applied
Spray Applied Corrosion Resistant Coating
GulfCoat® Contractor Series Coil Coating is new from Modine Coatings. GulfCoat®® MarineBlue, MarineClear, and MarineGold were developed in response to customer demand for a protective coating to be applied on small jobs and or in remote areas. This aerosol product will provide coverage for 6 to 8 square feet of coil face area, depending on user’s spray technique.
GulfCoat® marine coatings provide a HVAC COIL coating system for added corrosion protection on aluminum and copper finned RTPF and MCHX coils. GulfCoat® coatings help to reduce the accelerated corrosion of HVAC coils. By following the coating and maintenance instructions, end users should expect extended life cycles and keep the energy consumption to a nominal level.
Surface must be free of grease, rust, and wax. Prior to coating, follow these steps:
- Clean coils with appropriate cleaner – use GulfCoat® Surface Prep
- Rinse with clean water
- Allow coil to thoroughly dry
- Mask off or protect areas from overspray
- Allow product to warm to room temperature
Mask off or protect areas from overspray. Allow the can to warm to room temperature. Shake until mixing ball rattles, then continue to shake for two minutes. Move can with light to medium strokes. Let paint become tacky between coats. After use, invert can and spray to clear valve.
GulfCoat® MarineBlue, MarineClear, and MarineGold corrosion resistant coatings are specifically designed for the protection of HVAC coils and components. GulfCoat® MarineBlue is formulated to improve adhesion, moisture resistance, UV protection, and corrosion resistance. The product can be applied on-site or at your premises after HVAC units have been manufactured and installed.
HVAC coil and components shall have GulfCoat® MarineBlue, MarineClear, and MarineGold spray applied with no runs or sags. The spray coating process should ensure a uniform dry film thickness of 10-36 μm (0.4 -1.4 mils) and meet 5B rating for crosshatch adhesion per ASTM D3359-09. Corrosion durability shall be confirmed through testing to no less than 5,000 hours salt spray resistance per DIN 53167 (ASTM B117-11) using aluminum test coupons.
Applications Ideally Suited for GulfCoat MarineBlue
- Heat Exchanger Coils (water, condenser, evaporator, DX)
- Packaged Rooftops
- Condensing Units
- Modular Air-Handlers
- Air-Cooled Chillers
GulfCoat® MarineBlue, MarineClear, and MarineGold have a robust synthetic multi-polymer resin backbone that is suitable for most environments and will maintain its appearance after many years exposure to the elements.
Built in enhanced UV inhibitors form a protective barrier throughout the paint film. As a result, UV degradation of individual polymer molecules are reduced, and the film integrity maintained.
A high gloss finish is applied that is smooth, limits dirt and debris buildup, and allows for easy equipment cleaning.
