Surface treatments and performance coatings products

In collaboration with the finest and best in the Marine industry, we are developing surface treatments and performance coatings products that not only extends the lifecycle of the materials by preventing aqueous corrosion, our systems also provide for beautified materials, easy-to-clean substrates, friction reduction, anti-fouling and more.

Imada has developed an array of wet-chemical solutions that are easy to apply and safe to use. By safeguarding your engineered surfaces and components with our surface treatments, you can expect a higher level of performance, quality and appearance. By working together with the substrate, enhancing its properties by infusing new relevant elements, the lifecycle expectancy and end-user friendliness are taken to a much higher level.

Stronger surface with cutting-edge European technology

By creating chemical bonds at the atomic level, our solutions create a new, stronger material that will protect and last for many years in the harshest marine environments around the world. This high-gloss engineered surface is not at risk of delaminating or discoloring.

Economical application with long-term maintenance benefits

Our products ensure impeccable-looking aluminum by protecting them for over-the road transportation all the way to the dealership showroom and beyond. Application is easy and requires no investment in special equipment or expensive tools. The end result is delivery peace of mind for you and hassle-free maintenance for the boat owner.

Environmental stewardship

Our formulas don’t emit offensive odors and produce virtually no VOCs, protecting your employee’s well-being. Once applied, our products continue to protect the environment with no pollutant emissions to the water or air.

AluSil 100

NanoCeramic Passivation System

AluSil 100 was designed as a surface modifier for aluminum substrates used in marine environment. The ultra-thin (100-200nm), inert shield provides a more scratch and wear resistant surface together with repelling properties. These properties impair the absorption of moisture, salts and chlorides. Additionally the passivation provides an extended shield against galvanic corrosion and electrolysis. The organo modified nano-ceramic formula becomes one with the substrate resulting in a higher grade, longer lasting material.

AluSil 500

Hybrid passivation for Marine Aluminum

AluSil 500 was designed and formulated as a surface modifier/coating for aluminum hulls, pontoon bullets and other marine aluminum surfaces. Applied as a clear, alcohol-like solution, it reacts with the free ions on/in the aluminum and cures to a chemically bonded, glass-like surface with hydrophobic and oleophobic properties. This integrated shield minimizes oxidation, staining and impairs the adhesion of scum and microorganisms on the aluminum. It does not etch or change the physical appearance of the aluminum except providing a higher sheen and depth.

AluSil 1000

Clear Siloxane Coating for Marine Aluminum

AluSil 1000 was designed and formulated as a thin-film coating for aluminum hulls, pontoon bullets and other marine aluminum surfaces. Applied as a clear, alcohol-like solution, it reacts with the free ions on/in the aluminum and cures to a chemically bonded, glass-like yet flexible surface with hydrophobic and oleophobic properties. This strongly bonded shield provides high gloss, minimizes oxidation, staining and impairs the adhesion of scum and microorganisms on the aluminum. It does not etch or change the physical appearance of the aluminum except providing a higher sheen and depth. AluSil 1000 provides a slightly thicker surface-shield than AluSil 500. This may be necessary when there is a structured profile on the substrate that needs evening out or whenever a thicker and tougher coat is required and allowed.

SilaClear

Hydrophobic Surface Treatment Solution

SilaClear is a one-component user-friendly, surface treatment system for smooth surfaces such as glass and glazed ceramic. It chemically modifies the surface, providing hydrophobic surface properties. The high level of water repellency is very effective on automotive or marine windshields. The repellant properties are also very effective in colder climates as the treatment allows easier de-icing. The new surface functionality allows easy cleaning without aggressive cleaning agents. A wet cloth is generally sufficient.
