Sherwin-Williams has introduced SherPlate PW Epoxy, a 100% solids coating designed for immersion service in potable water pipes and storage tanks.
SherPlate Epoxy can be applied in one or two coats and has a 24-hour return-to-service time. The epoxyamine coating is formulated for enhanced edge retention, improving corrosion protection on corners and sharp angles, the manufacturer says.
Applications and Features
SherPlate PW is recommended for use on steel or concrete for potable water pipes six inches and greater in diameter and tanks greater than 25 gallons. It is also acceptable for use with cathodic protection systems. It is available with OPTI-CHECK OAP Technology to quickly identify pinholes or verify film thickness ensuring proper application.
SherPlate PW is available in a high-gloss white or blue finish. The low-VOC, low-odor product is dry to walk-on within four hours. The coating is NSF approved to Standard 61 for potable water and meets AWWA C210 and AWWA D102.
