Floatcoat – PLID


Ship 2 Shore Float Coat

Ship-2-Shore  Float Coat is highly effective as a rust inhibitor when applied to difficult to access surfaces using several floatation methods.  Stop rust, corrosion and electrolysis 100%


Made for Industry


Highly resistant to salt water and salt spray,  Float Coat penetrates existing rust, displaces moisture and sticks to base metal forming a highly adherent protective barrier that stops rust and corrosion 100%.

Float Coat requires no preparation for clean or moderately corroded surfaces. Heavily corroded surfaces may require several flotation applications spaced six months or more apart.

Dielectric to 40,000 volts.  Stop electrolysis between dissimilar metals.  Safe and effective for electric wires and electrical components.  Ship-2-Shore Float Coat is classified non-hazardous, non-flammable and non-toxic.

Anti corrosion and rust remover coating for marine and offshore applications such as

  • Void spaces
  • Ship rudder voids
  • Bilge keels
  • Sponson voids
  • Double hull voids on all types of ships
  • Cofferdams
  • Void spaces and coffer dams on offshore oil platforms and oil drilling support vessels
  • Legs of offshore structures
  • Cargo hold

*  Float Coat is Industry Canada approved.  Approved under government design spec MILR-21006 (Ships) Navy Ballast Tank Protective Coating Specification.  Navy and Coast Guard proven.

Float coat, when floated up, will yield 100% coverage of all surfaces contacted in one operation, no special procedures required.   Float coat attaches to metal surface at approximately 1 mil thickness.

Comes in, 20 litre pail (5gal) and 205 litre drum (55gal)


Float coat application method

Spray apply or flotation method; calculate the volume of material required for a 1 mil coat on all surfaces.  Coverage per liter of Float Coat at 1 mil. = 410 square feet.  Add additional Float Coat so several inches remains on the surface of the water after it has been drained down.   Float coat contacts the top of the unit, drain out the water leaving the extra product in the unit.

For units with heavy rust scales proceed as above but allow more time and volume of Float Coat to penetrate into the rust scale.  A second fill/ drain floatation procedure may be required.

Note:    Be aware, for heavily rusted surfaces, after a few months heavy rust scale may delaminate and begin falling off.  This may cause clogging of pump screens etc.  A second floatation application may be required at least six months later as most rust scale will have fallen off, leaving unprotected metal.

Float Coat may also be used as a liquid descaler.
