Sherwin-Williams has introduced Magnalux 304 FF, a flake-filled vinyl ester approved for surfaces associated with producing, storing and transporting food products.
|Magnalux 304 meets FDA 175.300 and is approved for use with a variety of food types.|
The chemical-resistant immersion coating is comprised of a vinyl ester resin containing mica flakes that reduce permeability and improve edge retention for longer service life, according to the manufacturer. The product is formulated with an extended pot life and can be applied with conventional or airless spray equipment on steel and concrete surfaces.
Magnalux 304 meets FDA 175.300 for conditions of use D, E and F, covering dry and liquid foods and beverages that are:
• Hot filled or pasteurized below 150 degrees F;
• Room temperature filled and stored, with no thermal treatment in the container; and
• Subject to refrigerated storage, with no thermal treatment in the container.
Approved for a wide variety of food types, Magnalux 304 is formulated to save time and labor and provide fast return to service, Sherwin-Williams says. The product can be applied in one coat for a dry film thickness of 14-16 mils, dries quickly, and cures in two to three days.
The low-VOC (<150 mg/L) product is easy to clean and disinfect, the manufacturer says.
The new storage coating option “fits very nicely in our portfolio of products for this industry,” said Narsi Bodapati, Sherwin-Williams Vice President of Marketing.
