Agreement on the Promotion and Supply of Ship Paint and Coating Materials Signed between Russkie Kraski and DALLAK at the IFEMS 2018
The agreement was signed between Russkie Kraski (Yaroslavl) and DALLAK (Vladivostok) at the International Far Eastern Maritime Show organized by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation and operated by the Roscongress Foundation. Under the agreement, the companies will work together to promote and supply modern Russian ship paint and coating materials, with DALLAK providing logistics and technical support for painting vessels with products developed and manufactured by Russkie Kraski.
Russkie Kraski develops a range of ship paints in cooperation with the St. Petersburg State Institute of Technology. In 2017, the Russian Ministry of Education and Science officially pledged its support for the project under Resolution No. 218 of the Government of the Russian Federation dated 09.04.2010. Following R&D work, nine brands of paint and coating materials will be certified for compliance with the standards of the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping, the Navy of the Russian Federation and the Russian River Register.
It is no coincidence that Russkie Kraski has chosen DALLAK as its partner in the Far Eastern Federal District. For over 20 years, DALLAK has been providing comprehensive solutions and technical support for painting processes. The cumulative experience of the company’s expert team, as well as its colour laboratory, well-established logistics network and technical support service help DALLAK’s clients successfully carry out decorative painting of buildings; repair painting of carrier vehicles; anti-corrosive and flame-retardant treatment of metal and reinforced concrete structures; installation of self-levelling floors; among others. Russkie Kraski and DALLAK have many years of successful cooperation promoting modern Russian industrial coatings.
The document is part of the programme to implement import substitution in the Russian shipbuilding and ship repair industry. As of the beginning of 2018, 75% of all marine paints and coatings on the Russian market were imported from abroad. Russian shipbuilding has experienced growth in recent years in terms of the volume of military and civilian products being produced. Major investment projects are under way in the Russian Far East to create modern shipbuilding facilities, meaning that more marine paint and coating materials will be needed moving forward.
Russkie Kraski is one of Russia’s largest producers of various paint and coating materials, including industrial, automotive, decorative, powder paint, and coatings for the aviation and shipbuilding industries. The company will be celebrating its 180th anniversary in 2018. It is in the Top 100 paint and coatings companies in the world according to the annual Coatings World (United States) ranking.
