Protective coatings maker Dampney Company Inc. has introduced a self-priming, high-gloss, high-solids coating designed for utility meters, valves and commercial and industrial equipment.
Dampney Endcor 8898 Silicone-Alkyd Copolymer Self-Priming Coating is a hard coating for use on cast-iron and steel surfaces requiring high gloss, color retention and weather resistance, the manufacturer says. Formulated to resist UV, chalking, fading, moisture and salt spray, the coating is VOC compliant and can be applied over solvent-cleaned surfaces using conventional airless spray or brush.
Approved by major utilities for electric- and water-meter and valve maintenance and manufacturing, Dampney Endcor 8898 Silicone-Alkyd Copolymer Self-Priming Coating is available in standard black and gray, with custom colors and gloss levels available on request. This single-component coating is 60% solids by volume and resists 300°F continuous exposure, Dampney says.
Based in Everett, MA, Dampney has developed coating systems for protection against hostile environments in atmospheric, immersion, and underground applications since 1917. Coating systems are based on a broad range of polymers and pigments resistant to chemicals, extreme heat and weather. Individual coatings and systems are tailored for application to masonry, metal, plastic, and wooden surfaces.
