Boero Yachtcoatings at the International Boat Shows 2010

01 December 2010

Boero YachtCoatings has always attempted to have a strong presence at the most important boat shows worldwide. After the SEATEC in Carrara - Italy (10/12 February 2010) and the MIBS in Moscow (15/18 April 2010), Boero also displayed at the Monaco Yacht Show in Montecarlo (22/25 September 2010), International Boat Show in Genoa (2/10 October 2010) , Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in Florida (28 October/1 November 2010), METS in Amsterdam (16/18 November 2010) and in Salon Nautique de Paris in France (4/12 December 2010).

During these exhibitions Boero exhibeted the following products & paint systems:

Two-component Polyester Urethane Topcoat CHALLENGER HT: after extensive research it's formulated with carefully selected materials and a new production technology, allowing it to obtain a high quality finish that is superior to any other two-component linear polyurethane enamel. Challenger HT is formulated to deliver exceptional initial gloss and long-term gloss retention. You can obtain high film build without any problem of running and a wide range of colours as a result of this tintometric system.

Two-component High Solid Polyacrilic Topcoat of the latest technology CHALLENGER HS: it creates a protection barrier on the yacht's surface with a compact, non-yellowing, elastic layer that has a high resistance to marine atmospheric conditions. When using a spray application, this new formulation can polished and repaired. The exceptional technical characteristics define this product's good filling quality and its excellent uniform coverage capacity. Challenger Hi-Solid can offer you a wide colour range: more than 15,000 possible colour combinations with Boero's tintometric system, including metallic, glossy, matt, pearlescent and special effects.

The new two-component epoxy primer DEFENDER is ideal as a primer in bottom paint systems and as an undercoat for the outboard and superstructure. Its unique properties make it possible to over-coat by any Boero antifouling for extended periods of time.

Boero Interior Paint System is certified by RINA for surface materials and floor covering with low flame-spread characteristics and made up of the following products:

* Delta 3000, high quality universal epoxy primer used as an anchoring coat on difficult surfaces such as aluminum, FRP, steel and wood

* Boeroguard, two-component high solid epoxy primer with excellent physical properties of adhesion, elasticity, impact and abrasion resistance

* Polyurethane Top Coat, two-component enamel designed to be used externally, internally in engine rooms etc.
