Antistatic coating for hazardous area enclosures

Intertec has launched an advance in antistatic surface coating treatment for its GRP (glassfiber reinforced polyester) outdoor enclosures. Developed specially for Intertec by the chemical specialist BÜFA, the new nanotechnology-based coating also boosts protection against damage from ultraviolet radiation - helping to achieve extended maintenance-free lifecycles of field-based control and instrumentation equipment in processing industries such as oil, gas, chemicals and petrochemicals. Intertec's weathering tests in an environmental test chamber have demonstrated that the new coating can withstand extended exposure to very high UV levels - providing a new level of protection particularly for GRP field enclosures destined for environments such as deserts, the tropics or the Arctic.
