Designed to extend asset lifetime
Protecting the future
Get to know us better
Learn from nature
STOPAQ is at heart a Polyisobutene (PIB) based coating, mimicking the natural behaviour of tree sap, with self-healing properties. The coating forms an impervious layer to oxygen, water and MIC, protecting corroding materials such as steel. This leads to permanent adhesion to the surface, extended lifetime of the coating and asset protection.
Savings go beyond reduced maintenance: use of our technology reduces your carbon footprint throughout the lifetime of the asset. So sit back, relax and trust the reliable performance of our preventative coating.
Certified and patented technology
We continuously test our products limits while taking on new challenges to deliver products of the future.
From manufacturing to application and operational performance, the technology exceeds the most stringent requirements of Health, Safety, Environment and Sustainability.
