Corrosion protection for maritime shipping

FLUID FILM is the trademark for a group of soft coatings developed for the long-term protection of all metal surfaces against corrosion in marine atmosphere and seawater.

The concept of these advanced soft coatings is based on over 60 years of experience and worldwide recognition of Eureka Chemical Company as a leader in the field of soft corrosion protection.

The combination of proven quality and performance of FLUID FILM products enables the most effective and economical solution to many corrosion problems.


In conventional painting systems, surface preparation by blasting and observance of the dew point during processing is an essential prerequisite for adhesion. Compliance with favourable environmental conditions during the drying phase is also important for trouble-free curing and thus crucial for optimum corrosion protection.

For these measures, a high technical effort is necessary, which is often not feasible, e.g. in the repair of ballast water tanks. Only excellent ventilation over several days, even of the hard-to-reach rear areas, ensures a flawless, dry surface. Removing rust and old paints by blasting is usually impossible.

Fluid FILM soft coatings are the solution to these problems. Years of shipping results show that the solvent-free LANOLIN-based FLUID FILM products are particularly suitable for these applications.

FLUID FILM products also offer a proven and economical solution for many other special requirements.

They have excellent penetration properties in residual rust, adhere to intact used paints, are sliding and highly resistant to all types of water and also adhere to damp substrates (FLUID FILM Liquid AR, FLUID FILM Liquid A, FLUID FILM AS-R and FLUID FILM WR-L).

In coating technology, these products offer further advantages such as:

  • thick film processing application
  • application by floatation
  • solvent-free and yet applicable with conventional airless devices
  • No unusual safety measures due to the risk of fire and explosion.

In the technical data sheets you will find information about the individual qualities of FLUID FILM products as well as suggestions about their areas of application.

Our technical service will be glad to provide you with detailed information.
