Complete Versatile System for a Wide Range of "Non-Stick", Easy-Clean Surfaces
In normal environmental conditions, even the toughest surfaces suffer. Paints oxidise and crack, metals corrode, lacquers and varnishes discolour and grow dull. Even stainless steel ‘stains’. Most exterior and interior surfaces in buildings, marine vessels and transportation vehicles are high-maintenance and are easily stained/discoloured by atmospheric pollution and other contaminants. Harsh and abrasive cleaning methods cause further surface degradation. As a result, the surfaces lose their original appearance and performance. The unique RITECOAT System is the first complete system for renovation, protection and maintenance of a wide range of surfaces -exterior and interior. Imagine a surface protection system that is thin, tough and versatile, and converts high maintenance surfaces into low-maintenance, ‘non-stick’ surfaces. A system that not only safeguards bare surfaces but also protective coatings, so they perform like new for longer.
PVC/ vinyl – rigid and flexible
‘Gelcoat’ polyester resin
Steel – bare, galvanised and stainless
Aluminium – bare and anodised
Copper and textured brass
The Ritecoat System converts ordinary, high-maintenance materials into “non-stick”, easy-clean surfaces. Working like “non stick” cookware, Ritecoat surfaces have higher quality, added convenience and added value because they:
• are much easier to clean, eliminating the need for harsh and abrasive cleaning methods • look cleaner and brighter for longer between cleanings, improving user satisfaction • resist surface contamination, weathering and staining/discolouration, keeping their original appearance and performance much longer
The Ritecoat System is proven in architectural, marine and transportation markets. It has achieved countless track records under all types of conditions throughout the world.
For surfaces already stained/discoloured, the Ritecoat System restores them to an “as new” appearance. A simple and economical after-care programme keeps Ritecoat surfaces looking and performing like new for much longer.
COMPONENTS OF RITECOAT SYSTEM
“Riteprep” - Surface Preparation - Highly effective on a wide range of surfaces Especially effective in removing ingrained soil from hard surfaces Removes the effects of oxidation from faded paintwork
RITECOAT 2200” - Protection …a special grade of urethane resin ‘Non-stick’, thin film, totally transparent, high gloss Ultra-violet (UV) resistant Exceptional resistance to chemical attack and weathering Proven in performance under the harshest conditions Stain-resistant, anti-graffiti Protects surface appearance and performance Does not support the spread of flame Ritecoat 2200 has special properties and performance as follows: • Thin-film • Excellent adhesion to many substrates • Transparent • Outstanding resistance to weathering; • Highly resistant to acid attack • Not sponified by alkalis • Non-yellowing • Highly resistant to solvents • Good abrasion resistance • Strong water repellency, but also good water vapour permeability so moisture is not trapped in the backing • Extra smooth surface with a low coefficient of friction, giving excellent dirt repellency and ease of cleaning • Thermally stable, withstands operating temperatures from 120 deg. C to –30 deg. C for extended periods • Stable in ultraviolet (UV) radiation, absorbs virtually none of the UV range of the solar spectrum, i.e., wavelengths between 300 and 400nm. Please note Ritecoat 2200 is not a UV barrier. • Fire resistant, meets Class 1 Surface Spread of Flame, BS476, Part 7, 1987
