Industrial Coatings

From cooling towers to piping to storage tanks, industrial water infrastructure is subject to microbial contamination, biofilms and microbial-induced corrosion. You depend on coatings to protect your capital assets. You want your water systems to operate as efficiently as possible and to reduce fresh water consumption and maintenance/cleaning cost. Exigence has developed SymbiCoat™ coatings monomers that stabilize chlorine on submerged surfaces.


If your customers are looking for improved water infrastructure protection, consider adding SymbiCoat™ functionality into your coatings or specialty polymers.

SymbiCoat™ monomers have been designed for incorporation into industrial coatings formulations and specialty polymers. The functionality that SymbiCoat™ monomers provide is particularly suited for end-uses where sodium hypochlorite is employed in routine cleaning or maintenance of assets and environments, and high-performance microbial control is a necessity.

Industrial water systems and water infrastructure are typically subject to constant or pulse dosed sodium hypochlorite/chlorine concentrations.  SymbiCoat™ is unmatched in its ability to rapidly and repeatedly uptake sodium hypochlorite and stabilize it on surfaces, to allow the sodium hypochlorite to do what it does best: kill microbes fast. In submerged water environments where minimal chlorine concentrations are present, or pulse dosing of chlorine is used, SymbiCoat™ can load and stabilize chlorine significantly faster and at lower chlorine concentrations than previous generation N-halamine technologies.

Stabilization of chlorine at the material interface is a unique approach which may disrupt microbial attachment to the surface, creating ‘bottom up’ microbial control.
