We developed our own products and manufacture them in Scotland where
we have a reputation for innovation and for environmental
responsibility in our product development.

Although most ACTEL products are water based making them among the
safest protective coatings products to use, they are effective and
proven in the hostile environment of the North Sea and onshore where
world class companies and structures have been protected since the
early 1980s.

ACTEL products have been Highly Commended in the Scottish John Logie
Baird Awards for Innovation and been honoured by the Queen Mother's
Annual Birthday Award for Environmental Improvement in 1997. The top
award was won by MacDonald's Restaurants who happen to specify one of
our products for use in their flagship restaurants in North America and
in the U.K.!

Alocit anti-corrosion coatings have an amazing ability to adhere to
wet, damp, oily and contaminated concrete and steel. Coating underwater
and in splash zones, using brushes or pumped systems, is as easy as
coating above water. Alocit have a uniquely successful record of
corrosion protection on sweating pipes, steel and concrete piles,
bilges, waste treatment works, hulls, bund areas and tunnels.

The Alocit 28 Series is a range of coatings and fillers with
outstanding adhesive and protective qualities. Tests by the US Navy on
damp and oily surfaces have shown adhesion beyond the range of their
testing equipment. Alocit Systems coatings are consistently top of the
tables in comparison tests on problem substrates. The 28 Series is one
of only three coatings listed by the US Army Corps of Engineers as
meeting its specifications for application on wet surfaces - and
neither of the other two listed can be applied underwater - in fact
nothing can be applied underwater with the ease and effectiveness of
the Alocit 28 Series.

Alocit have a record of successful applications going back over thirty
years - with case histories and testimonials that show coatings applied
in 1968 still intact, despite a lifetime of exposure to aggressive
waste products.

The Alocit range of environmentally friendly and cost-effective coating
products offers long-lasting protection under very challenging
conditions. Alocit's technically advanced coatings have been tried and
tested by companies around the world but despite their high
performance, Alocit products are easy to apply with uncomplicated
preparation requirements and the unique ability to adhere underwater as
well as to damp, salty and oily surfaces.

With offices around the world, Alocit has experts with the local
knowledge and experience to help you with advice and information. As
specialists in high technology coatings and application systems we have
solutions for a wide variety of difficult problems.

The Company has been established since 1970. At this time it was a

Evertex is a superb heavy duty coating that has been manufactured in
the U.K since 1969 using a thoroughly proven formulation modified only
as technology has advanced. It is suitable for all properties and every
type of surface.

Evertex is manufactured using perlite. This product gives the coating
its texture and because perlite consists of many tiny air bubbles adds
to the insulating properties of the coating.

Fungicide and Algicide is added to Evertex to give long term protection
to the film and will deter algae and fungi from disfiguring the

Fibres are added to heavy coatings to help give long term strength.
Evertex has to quite separate fibres, some quite short and some much
longer. These are both of a mineral nature to ensure that there is no
possibility that they will deteriorate over the long life of the

Evertex contains a very special form of wax that combines with the high
resin content to reduce the adhesion of dirt to the surface.
Evertex is a very complex material, far more complex than ordinary
coatings and holds the reputation for being the best wall coating on
the market.

Everflex the new wall coating from Everlac ( GB ) Ltd is based on a
brand new elastomeric resin that has been developed using the best of
today's modern technology. It brings a new concept to wall coatings
incorporating a series of much needed properties.

Years ago concrete was regarded as virtually everlasting but it is now
seen to be vulnerable to atmospheric conditions and a coating designed
to counteract these but also fulfil asthetic requirements is necessary.
Everflex meets all these criteria and this combined with its ability to
be applied extremely easily makes it the ideal wall coating for both
commercial and domestic use.

Older materials have relied upon plasticizers to give flexibility but
now modern resins have allowed the development of coatings that retain
their flexibility over a long period of time.

The flexible poloymers used to produce Everflex allow the surface it is
applied to, breathe allowing water vapour to escape and also providing
a lasting barrier against the destructive effects of Carbon Dioxide.

Everflex has excellent crack bridging properties and is highly
resistant to Grime and dirt.

It can be easily applied by roller brush or high pressure spray and has
a smooth satin finish.

Everflex Plastercoat is available for ceilings and is perfect for
covering imperfections, this can be applied by decorative rollers,
stipple brushes or by plasterers float.
