About Bluchem

Bluchem was started in 2003 to fill a niche requirement for a high quality anti-corrosion coating that offered real value for money and quick turn-around times, specialising in air conditioning anti-corrosion coating.

The Problem

  • Many companies use coatings that are not specifically designed for HVAC/R equipment
  • Generic coatings can lead to heat transfer losses and inefficiency
  • Most coatings are solvent based and environmentally unfriendly
  • Generic coatings are known to be not long lasting
  • South Africa has a vast amount of coastal area as well as highly industrialised environments
  • South Africa’s high levels of ultra violet light readily damages inferior coatings
