About Cocoon Holland B.V.

“We are a company located in Hoofddorp, a town nearby the airport, and we also have our dedicated storage facilities in Drachten, the north of The Netherlands where we store spare parts of LNG carriers”.

Alexander van der Zee, owner of Cocoon (since 2002), has established roots in the painting industry. His grandfather had a paint factory where his father also worked in and so became quite familiar with the production and application of paint-related products from a young age.

When the opportunity came to offer cocoon products, he seized that chance to further develop new applications for the technology.

Prevent moisture and dust

The Cocoon Mothballing System provides the objects to be protected with a weather-proof, tough and seamless Cocoon ‘skin’, which is hermetically sealed against moisture and dust. Within this ‘cocoon’, the relative humidity is kept at approximately 40%, which prevents the formation of mould and corrosion.

What is Cocoon?

 

Cocoon is an extraordinary, liquid polymer coating that sprays cobweb-like filaments that form a tough, waterproof, flexible, monolithic membrane that will conform to any surface. A high-quality, sprayable synthetic material, developed around 50 years ago and still unbeaten. No other product has Cocoon’s reputation. Cocoon can be applied as a waterproofing coating on new installations as well as over traditional existing systems.

The polymer coating will adhere to most common construction materials. Sunlight, rain, wind and marine atmospheres have little or no effect on Cocoon.
