Ultralast ECOATINGTM System flourishes in the most aggressive climatic and environmental conditions, because its simple formulation bonds so securely to any well-prepared surface. Take a look at some of our success stories.
Bondi Icebergs Pool The iconic Bondi Icebergs, located at the Southern end of Bondi beach, is perhaps the most famous pool in Australia. Opened in 1923, like all tidal pools, it is subject to constant battering from ocean waves. Few paints can stand up to the corrosive effects of salt water, let alone the never-ending barrage of ocean waves which can slap the side of the pool with considerable force. Accordingly, the Icebergs pool owners found they had to repaint every 9 to 12 months. Then they discovered Ultralast. In November 2005, the pool owners agreed to host a test strip of Ultralast on the ocean wall of the pool. The test strip was monitored for six months. At the end of that time, it was as good as the day it was applied. So in June 2006, the pool was completely repainted with Ultralast. Now, we confidently expect that the Bondi Icebergs pool will not require repainting for some years. This not only saves the owners money; it also saves the inconvenience of closing the pool every nine months to repaint.
Brisbane Airport The management of Brisbane airport had always had a problem with the guidelines painted on the tarmac. These vivid yellow paint lines are important, as they guide large passenger aircraft to the correct air bridges to offload and onload passengers. With the heat, high tropical humidity and jet fuel spillage, invariably the paint would wear away quickly. The lines required repainting at frequent intervals. But now the lines are painted with Ultralast, and management does not have to endure the inconvenience of shutting various pathways around the tarmac to facilitate regular repainting.
