Product Description

Carboline Carbomastic 18 FC is a fast-curing, heavy duty, high-build anti-corrosive coating with a broad range of uses in marine and other corrosive environments.

Best Uses

Carboline Carbomastic 18 FC is an ideal durable solution for the protection of ship hull exteriors, above and below the water line. Carbomastic 18 FC is also suitable for use on ballast tanks. Suitable offshore applications include splash zones, subsea, jackets, production decks, drilling rig legs and pontoons in immersed exposures.

  • Excellent immersion performance in both fresh and sea water
  • Suitable as a rust preventive coating in ballast tanks and hull applications
  • Ideal for sub-sea installations, jackets and other areas exposed to sea water
  • Can be applied as low as 5°C (40°F)
  • Good flexibility
  • Very good abrasion resistance
  • High solids with low VOC


Suitable for application onto steel, galvanized steel, concrete, phosphatized steel and previously painted surfaces. Apply via airless spray, or brush / roller for small difficult areas only. See product data sheet for full preparation and application guidance.
