The International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) is a maritime treaty that was first passed following the RMS Titanic disaster of 1914. Flag-carrying vessels of the State signatories to the treaty must comply with the requirements of the standard.

EU Marine Equipment Directive (MED) and UK Marine Equipment Regulations (MER) are the legal enactments of the SOLAS treaty.

We manufacture coatings that carry the prestigious Wheelmark and Black Ensign quality marks, denoting accreditation to the standards.

Several countries outside the EU will accept products with MED accreditation. In a Mutual Recognition Agreement, the United States Coast Guard also recognises products approved to MED/MER.

We manufacture a range of coatings suitable for protective automotive applications, including chassis protection, brake fluid resistant systems and under-bonnet coatings.

Our high temperature resistant coatings are ideal for protecting mufflers and exhausts.


Car interiors require coatings with high aesthetic values; we manufacture coatings with high durability for use throughout car interiors. Direct sunlight can cause the car to become hot, making the journey uncomfortable and increasing the need for air conditioning. Reduce environmental carbon footprint by using our ‘Cool Colours’ – products with enhanced infrared reflectivity to reduce heat build-up.


Our ‘Signature Finish’ (TM) range of products sets us ahead in the bespoke customising and styling of products within this sector. A range of over 50 key products allows end users and specifiers to develop stand out finishes in single and dual coat technology.
