CREST COATINGS (Australia) PTY LTD
CREST Coatings (Australia) Pty Ltd was formed after the sale of the very successful Petro Coating Systems Pty Ltd (PCS), to Winn & Coales International (DENSO) in March 2015. The Petrolatum Tape, MarineGard & SteelGard manufacturing business of PCS was sold to Winn & Coales (UK) to allow CREST to focus on advanced technologies for both steel pipeline and concrete construction.
CREST has retained the “Seal For Life” (Polyken, Covalence, Powercrete) pipeline coating systems, along with “Deepwaters” Nu-Bolt/ I-Rod (anti- corrosive pipe supports). In addition CREST signed in December 2014 an exclusive manufacturing & distribution license with CORMIX INTERNATIONAL for their global range of concrete construction chemicals and waterproofing systems. This agreement allows CREST to provide a more comprehensive range of anti-corrosive, repair and waterproofing solutions covering both steel pipelines and concrete structures.
CREST has strategically positioned itself to enable a more diverse spread of product solutions for both new infrastructure and repair of existing infrastructure, operating across the hydrocarbons, renewables, marine, resources, energy, water, refining, mineral processing, and engineering and construction sectors. CREST is a highly respected manufacturer and specialist distributor of advanced Anti-Corrosion and Protective Coating Systems.
