Sherwin-Williams has unveiled Carflex HS Epoxy, designed as a tough, flexible coating to prevent contamination when transporting and storing dry bulk food products.

The polyamide-cured modified epoxy is formulated for lining rail hopper cars, storage tanks, marine vessels, grain elevators, bolted and/or riveted tanks and concrete.

Applications for Carflex HS Epoxy include lining rail hopper cars.

“Ensuring food products remain uncontaminated during their journey from field to tables worldwide is more important, and more regulated, than ever,” the manufacturer says in a release.

Product Features

Impact- and abrasion-resistant, Carflex HS Epoxy is designed to provide corrosion protection, flexibility and protection from cracks at flexing weld seams, according to Sherwin-Williams.

The product meets FDA 175.300 for direct contact dry bulk storage.

Carflex HS is 100 percent solids, contains zero solvents, has a VOC content of less than 100 grams per liter (16 g/L; 0.13 lb/gal, mixed), and is free of bisphenol A (BPA), which may be of concern to some agricultural producers.

Carflex HS can be used as a one-coat or two-coat system. The coating dries and cures quickly, leaving an easy-to-clean glossy surface, the manufacturer says.

Narsi Bodapati, Marketing VP for Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings, calls the coating “a breakthrough product in the dry food storage and transportation segment.”
