KEMPER SYSTEM’s trademark is the duck, which symbolizes the important role nature plays in the development of its products. The ideal symbol of perfect waterproofing, the duck’s watertight plumage is a perfect example of what KEMPER aims to achieve.COELAN Marine Coating was developed with wood’s natural characteristics in mind, in contrast with traditional varnishes. Just as it is the duck’s natural element, water is the natural element for the maritime industry. The duck’s plumage is a perfect symbol of COELAN Boat Coating’s Water-Vapor Exchange technology that was designed to permit the natural process of wood to “breathe” and exchange moisture, allowing condensed water to evaporate into the atmosphere. This technology protects and preserves the wood core, preventing any possibility of rot from setting in.
