Protective coating helps shield water treatment and other municipal facilities
Dura-Plate 6100 protects against corrosion of concrete and steel in municipal and industrial wastewater treatment facilities, as well as sewer collection structures. The product helps to extend the design life of a variety of coated structures, including manholes, basins, wet wells, pipes, and sumps, according to the manufacturer, Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings. Other potential applications include clarifiers, lift stations, influent channels, trenches and digesters.
Use the coating at power generation facilities, food and beverage operations, secondary containment and municipal applications. The product is a 100-percent solids high build, high physical performance, amine-cured epoxy.
It offers quick dry-to-touch times that reduce the potential for outgassing on buried concrete structures. The product offers rapid return-to-service times of 12 hours to prevent downtime and increase productivity. At 77 degrees Fahrenheit, the coating is dry to touch in 30 minutes, and it cures for immersion in 12 hours. It can be applied in temperatures as low as 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
The product is an ultra-low VOC, spray-applied, resinous coating capable of film builds of 125+ mils in a single coat. With multiple passes of the gun, the product will provide the end user with structural enhancement of the host substrate through semi-structural properties and lower permeability. It reduces the potential for pinhole formation due to the rapid dry-to-touch times. The product’s chemical resistance supports life cycle improvement.
Available in off-white, the coating increases visibility and offers good light reflectance value, according to the company. The product allows for inspection without entry. Because the product contains no solvent, spark hazards in confined spaces are eliminated.
