Alocit Coating is a specialised coating system that can be applied on both dry and wet conditions such as splash zone areas of offshore structures and marine vessels

IEV has partnered with Alocit International Limited, a UK-based company, to distribute Alocit Coatings, a unique coating system that can be applied on both steel and concrete substrates, in wet, oily, and even sweating conditions.

The Alocit Coatings is engineered to adhere to the most challenging substrates and can be easily applied using airless spray, brush or roller system. This environmentally friendly coating, which has been widely used by diving companies worldwide in the past 40 years, resists to MIC and ALWC and has been proven to withstand the test of time.

Alocit Coatings has been in the industry for over 40 years with a track record ranging from applications on offshore and onshore oil and gas structures to marine vessels, tunnels and jetties, and pipes and piping.  A wide range of case studies and success stories are available on demand. With an extensive track record also comes an impressive clientele ranging from top oil and gas operators such as Shell and Petronas, and government agencies such as the US Navy, just to name a few. Additionally, IEV has witnessed the performance of Alocit Coatings on a 2240-steel jetty pile at a refinery in Vietnam in 2007. More than 25,000m2 of splash-zone areas of jetty piles were coated using a combination of painters/blasters and divers. 10 years later at the same jetty, inspection carried out under and above water (pic above) indicating 95% of the Alocit Coating remained intact and continues to offer anti-corrosion protection to the jetty piles.

Christopher Do, CEO and CTO of IEV Group commented, “Alocit is a versatile coating system that offers long-term protection for assets that operate in the harsh marine environment. This solution will be an integral part of IEV’s Corrosion Control Solutions and its positioning in the vast corrosion control market in the Asia Pacific region. Coupled with the company’s pursuit of robotics engineering, IEV aims to deliver safe and cost-effective fabric maintenance solutions for all assets, fixed, floating or moving, that operate at sea. An intensive R&D program is also ongoing to enhance the fouling retardation property of the existing Alocit underwater coating system, which will have a positive impact on the CO2 emission of the shipping industry that currently accounts for at least 2.5% of the world’s total CO2 emission.”
