3M

3M provide various products of choice for OEM paints and coatings in the rail and public transport sector. You can use 3M Scotchkote EA9 WB primer and coatings and 3m Scotchkote EA5WB to provide long term corrosion protection for the underside of the rail carriages.

The internals too have the best paints to provide not only anti-graffiti properties but are also extremely hard wearing and provide a wonderful finish too. All of these are good enough for the Pendolino trains that rocket around the country every day.

Let’s not forget the roofs. Polynox 136 is an excellent corrosion resistant, waterproofing coating that provides your carriage with a flexible, UV stable and durable coating. Did we mention that it is also fast drying, low VOC and has excellent adhesion?

Where real durability is required 3M Scotchkote has quite possibly the best wall coatings in the industry, so much so that LUL use 3M Scotchkote UV 843 and its appropriate primers such as 3m Scotchkote GP 830. For anti-graffiti and fast drying properties, combined with low spread of flame and low toxic smoke valves, it’s a perfect fit.

3M have developed a cold applied moisture cured Polyurethane roof coating similar to the Liquid Plastics Decothane for flat roofs. As you may know the Decothane system from Sika Liquid Plastics can now only be applied by an approved applicator where as 3M are happy to over see non-approved applicators and still offer either a 15 or 25 year warranty. The 3M roofing system is applied in a similar method to Decothane where a glass fibre Reemat matting is embedded into the liquid applied membrane which becomes resistant to rain rapidly and provides a seamless reinforced elastomeric roof coating with systems to suit all clients budgets.
