KEMP plans to produce offshore wind power structures

The director of KEMP Hyun-Jun, Jeon has recently presented INNOZINC – the ‘4th generation eco-friendly ceramic zinc plating technology.


The company has developed the first eco-friendly and highly corrosion-resistant ceramic galvanizing in the world. It owns this technology, covering the fields of solar power metal surface treatment, construction, automobiles, and shipbuilding.


KEMP wants to expand the high corrosion resistance zinc plating technology, which is also eco-friendly, to the green energy market applied to the sea. To achieve that goal, the company is making efforts to make policy recommendations, promote cooperation between industries, and foster industries.


KEMP has developed an eco-friendly ceramic zinc plating-INNOZINC as an eco-friendly solution for the corrosion method of metals. INNOZINC can replace hot-dip zinc plating, which causes environmental pollution.


The ceramic galvanizing method is much better in comparison to hot-dip galvanizing. It has excellent acid resistance, three times better corrosion resistance, and weldability.


Furthermore, when ceramic zinc plating-INNOZINC is used on the sea or water, it does not cause problems in that zinc is eluted by contact with water, unlike hot-dip galvanizing. As a result, it is safe for use in water reservoirs or other water sources.


INNOZINC also has excellent acid resistance compared to conventional plating. It is strong against NoX and SoX, as well as acidity generated from the automobile exhaust gas. So, INNOZINC is good to use in urban areas with strong acidity. INNOZINC is already in use in fish farms, marine, floating solar generator frames, and so on.

Hyun-Jun, Jeon stated that they could reduce environmental pollution if the new plating method applies to offshore wind power products.


According to him, the company has secured technologies that can reduce environmental pollution, as well as ensure high corrosion resistance at a reasonable cost. They think the broad application of this plating method may become a new paradigm in the plating industry.
