Unparalleled Asset Protection.

Military-grade anti-corrosion and easy-clean coating simplifies maintenance and extends equipment life cycle.

Gentoo is a next-gen, multi-functional corrosion-resistant and easy-clean coating that’s easy to apply and stands up to even the harshest of environments. With its combination of high-performing abrasion resistance and very low sliding angle, Gentoo excels where other coatings have fallen short. Gentoo is a transparent coating that not only repels water but many oils and solvents, as well.

Gentoo Prevents Corrosion on Almost Any Surface.

Gentoo is a sol-gel technology, which revolutionizes corrosion control and protection. During and shortly after its development, UltraTech International and its partners conducted in-depth testing to certify Gentoo’s key attributes both in the lab and in the field, including with the United States Air Force (USAF).

Gentoo Renews and Protects Painted Surfaces.

Gentoo renews oxidized paint, while protecting it from abrasion and harsh environments. And since Gentoo can be sprayed on, it protects every nook and cranny—not just flat surfaces. This is useful for protecting complex equipment and machinery.

Gentoo Mitigates Fouling, Soiling, Icing, and More.

Gentoo can be used to drastically reduce fouling on boat hulls, the soiling of heavy construction equipment, ice buildup on solar panels and windmills, and stop many liquids, paints, or oils from adhering to almost any surface. What does stick around is super-easy to remove when Gentoo is underneath.
