Solvay’s new waterborne Halar ECTFE coating system widens the scope of metal corrosion prevention applications for the chemical processing industry. Equipped with high adhesion primer and topcoat, the new coating system can be easily applied using standard liquid spray equipment.
Already Solvay’s HALAR ECTFE powder coatings are used for corrosion prevention for equipment in acids, mining, pulp and paper, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and semi-conductor industries. Now with the new waterborne Halar ECTFE Liquid Coating Technology, Solvay expands the range of end-use applications to those that are difficult or impossible to powder coat – such as complex shapes, uneven surfaces, oversized vessels, pipe interiors, tanks and containers. In addition, it also provides an alternative protective metal coating option to corrosion resistant alloys.
The new coating technology offers long-lasting performance, chemical resistance, permeation resistance, exceptional surface properties, adhesion and high purity. Apart from these benefits, the formulation is also environmentally-friendly, ultra-low VOC and Hazardous Air Pollutant-free.
At CMT’s 19th ASIA Coatings Markets on 21-22 August 2019 in Bangkok, Joe Chou, Global Marketing Manager - Industrial, I&E2, Solvay Taiwan Company talks more about the new coating technology in his session on ‘What's New?: Enhanced Anti-Corrosion through Sustainable Waterborne ECTFE Coating System’.
