Jenoseel Rust Stabilising Primer chosen to protect EuroMars capsule.

Jenoseel Rust Stabilising Primer have been chosen to protect the Euro-Mars modules.

Designed to simulate actual working conditions on Mars, these units will enable space technologies and crew working conditions to be rigorously tested on Earth.

To reproduce the effects of the harsh Martian environment where temperatures go down to -140 degrees C, modules will be tested in severe conditions ranging from the heat of American deserts to the extreme cold of northern Iceland and north Canada within the Arctic Circle.

"A very special coating was needed to withstand these extreme conditions and Jenoseel systems were chosen to provide the high degree of protection required," said Bo Maxwell, Project Director.

Established nearly 30 years ago, DG Protective Coatings specialises in advanced anti-rust coatings for steel. Applications range from power stations in the Middle East to radio masts on the Falkland Islands.
