Protect your assets

We believe that through innovation, waste of materials and resources can be minimized. We achieve this with a future-oriented product portfolio in the field of surface treatments and coatings with a specific focus on the sectors: maritime, industry, construction and energy.

nC Corrosion Passivator

In 2010, founder Rob van Hoorn was asked whether he could come up with a solution for the Maritime Innovation Platform to treat the ballast tanks of ocean going vessels against corrosion without the need for blasting. The winning result was the nC Corrosion Passivator. This made it possible to treat 1,200 cubic meters of tank volume per day against corrosion at a fraction of the cost and without unhealthy and labor-intensive work.

Protect your assets

Years of experience and decelopment in the maritime industry have resulted in proven solutions in the areas of Corrosion Passivation, Thermal Insulation and the Protection & Sealing of surfaces. With our products, we extend the lifespan of ships, machinery and structures around the world and improve traditional processes for people and the environment. We as nC are proud of that, and our end users regularly express their appreciation for it.

Sustainability is in our DNA

For almost every problem, nature already has a solution and therefore the core of all our products is Bio Based. Sustainability is thus in the DNA of our products and helps us in our mission to reduce material waste worldwide.
