Crew habitability and noise exposure is a primary concern on ships, workboats and offshore platforms. In fact, it is so important that OSHA and ABS set standards to ensure not only safety, but also comfort, for personnel. Mascoat's two marine-grade coatings, Marine-DTM and Sound Control-dB, can help companies meet or exceed those standards.
Every industrial facility has inherent safety risks, and many are preventable with a little forward thinking and due diligence. Burns, product spills, fires, heat exhaustion and scalding hot water in safety lines are all safety issues that are caused by either the lack of, or poor maintenance of insulation.
The Coating Society of the Houston Area has honored Mascoat with their annual William A. Wood Award.
Mascoat partners with Southwest Precision Printers (SWP) for printing brochures, literature and other marketing pieces. SWP provides excellent service and uses cutting-edge prepress technology and state-of-the-art equipment to consistently deliver the finest print work to their clients.

Join Mascoat in Rotterdam March 13-15 to learn more about our industrial insulating coating that help to conserve energy, protect personnel, and reduce condensation and solar loading.
Mascoat Sound Control – dB is a multipurpose, spray on sound control coating that has been utilized within industrial applications, for the reduction of vibrational and excessive noise issues within onshore and offshore projects, to areas such as pumps, ducting, generator housings, and more. It tackles the problem of noise by trapping vibrational sound before its airborne release, making it more effective than conventional sound insulators.
In mid 2012, LeBeouf Brothers Towing (LBT), a leading tug operator out of Louisiana, met with a representative from Mascoat concerning two upcoming builds. LeBeouf was looking for a better way to not only insulate some of the areas of their vessels, but a way to quiet them down while they were in operation on the Gulf Coast.
