Product: High Build, Waterborne, Direct-to-Metal Tank Coating
Painters in tank fabrication shops apply coatings containing flammable solvents that have a high odor and are fire hazards. These coatings contain VOCs and HAPs and affect permits and licensure. Shop owners have been asking for “something better” for many years. Now they have it.
Our product is a high build coating that is applied direct-to-metal, dries quickly, is corrosion resistant, and allows tank shops to achieve fast “throughput” without the usual bottlenecks caused by waiting for paint to dry. Best of all, it contains 0 VOC and 0 HAPS, and uses harmless water as its solvent. And, because it’s an acrylic coating, it has long term color and gloss retention. If specified, our product can also be applied over acrylic, epoxy, or zinc-rich primers.
Tanks can now be painted within a wide range of shop temperatures (40F to 120F, for example) and will be dry-to-touch in about 30 minutes … a remarkable advancement in waterborne coatings. Our product is also resistant to inorganic acids, alkalis, and isopropyl alcohol.
