Jotachar JF750, the industry’s first mesh-free Passive Fire Protection (PFP) epoxy coating system for structural steel, is rapidly setting new standards in the oil and gas sector – in terms of both its benefits and sales volumes. Launched just two years ago by Jotun, the ground breaking performance coating has already attracted substantial orders from some of the biggest names in the industry.
Jotun is happy to confirm that “many millions of kilograms” of Jotachar JF750 have already been installed since launch, now protecting key assets. One recent project award will consume over half a million kilograms for a major Middle-East operator choosing Jotachar to protect two large offshore units against a broad range of fire scenarios, including jet fires.
“These significant volumes are an indication of the interest Jotachar JF750 has generated in the market,” states Global PFP Sales Director Performance Coatings, Andy Czainski. “Third party data and customer experience has shown that Jotachar reduces risk, time and cost during installation and increases safety during operation. Major Oil & Gas companies are approaching us to protect their high-value assets.”
