Nippon Paint Marine ‘Self-Indicating Technology’ Automatically ‘Detects’ Areas With Low Film Thickness, A Contributory Factor in Corrosion Influenced Structural Failure
The coating is distinguished by its unique and patented Self-Indicating (SI) technology that enables the applicator to visually confirm that the correct film thickness has been applied by checking the colour development during the application process. The full colour is realized only when the correct dry film thickness has been applied, therefore any areas of low film thickness can easily be detected by visual inspection.
