ecosparc® is a Graphene-based additive designed to seamlessly enhance the performance of marine and protective coatings for steel infrastructure
reduction in carbon emissions
savings in maintenance costs
Ecosparc is not a paint.
Ecosparc, when added in tiny amounts, supercharges coatings currently used to protect steel assets from corrosion.
The benefits of Ecosparc including cost and emissions savings are the direct result of Ecosparc extending the time between maintenance events by 18-21%.
Ecosparc is the flagship product of Sparc Technologies (ASX:SPN). Sparc is pioneering new technologies in coatings and composites, green hydrogen and sodium-ion batteries to help deliver a more sustainable world.

The Dual Anti-Corrosion Mechanism
Corrosion generally commences when a protective coating has been damaged. e.g. cracking.
ecosparc enhanced coatings:
Delay coating cracking. This delays the onset of corrosion.
When damage does finally occur, ecosparc further limits corrosion spread by >25%.
Significantly increasing the time between maintenance events.

What is ecosparc?Ecosparc is a revolutionary graphene-based additive specifically designed to enhance the performance of marine and protective coatings used to safeguard steel infrastructure. It is not a paint, but when added in small quantities, it significantly boosts the protective capabilities of coatings.
What does ecosparc do?Ecosparc plays a crucial role in preserving and fortifying steel structures by extending the time between maintenance events. The key benefits of Ecosparc include substantial cost savings and reduced carbon emissions associated with asset maintenance. By incorporating Ecosparc into conventional coatings, you can expect up to 25% savings in re-coatable steel maintenance costs, as well as an 18-21% reduction in carbon emissions. Thus, it simplifies infrastructure maintenance by requiring fewer onsite checkups, reducing asset downtime, increasing productivity, and minimizing maintenance events.
What certifications or partnerships does ecosparc have?Ecosparc is backed by a strategic partnership and exclusive licensing agreement with the University of Adelaide, renowned for its expertise in graphene and renewable energy research. We also collaborate with several other world-leading Australian universities. Our product testing has been conducted to meet full ISO standards, ensuring quality and reliability over a period of 4+ years.
How does ecosparc contribute to environmental sustainability?By extending the time between maintenance events and reducing carbon emissions associated with asset maintenance, Ecosparc significantly contributes to environmental sustainability. The 18-21% reduction in emissions is a result of the improved protective capabilities it provides, reducing the need for frequent maintenance and repaints.
