SustainGuard

SustainGuardSustainGuard is separated into two distinct offerings for metal coating and corrosion protection. SustainGuard is a range of water based metal coatings while SustainGuard HS consists of High solids solvent based coatings.

The complex environments in the OEM industry demand long-lasting and highly resilient systems for the end-user, whilst taking into account the specific set-up of the existing coating lines and processes. As part of our service we incorporate important factors like size and shape of the objects to be coated, line speed, film thickness, material and labour costs, cost per unit and overall cost of coating, and the level of VOC emissions.

The innovative SustainGuard range answers the needs of the OEM industry and its end-users with a proven track record in protecting equipment and machinery of Europe’s top producers throughout their lifetime.

SustainGuard corrosion-resistant coatings are quick drying, low on VOC emissions, and have been specially formulated to provide ultimate performance, durability, weather ability, colour and gloss retention. All have been tested to meet and exceed the highest international technology standards as well as current and future EU emission legislation.

SustainGuard products are available in a full range of RAL and BS colours as well as an array of custom designed colours ensuring ultimate flexibility in our coatings range.
