Carboline Company’s Reactamine 760 lining may now be used for direct dry food contact as well as potable water service, under new approval granted by the Food and Drug Administration.

The coating is the latest in Carboline’s line of elastomeric polyurethane hybrid linings, with a broad range of applications. The manufacturer calls Reactamine 760 an “environmentally friendly, fast-setting, chemical-resistant elastomeric lining,” UL approved for potable water ANSI/NSF Standard 61.

 Reactamine 760 is suitable for direct contact with food and potable water, as well as secondary containment and power applications.


Reactamine 760 is suitable for direct contact with food and potable water, as well as secondary containment and power applications.

This month, the company said, it also gained FDA approval for the coating to be used in food storage as it now complies with 21 CFR 175.300 methods D, E & G.

“Reactamine 760 is solvent-free and is also free of MOCA (4,4'-Methylenebis (2-chlorobenzenamine)),” said Dallas Finch, Carboline’s Vice President of R&D. “This makes Reactamine 760 a safe product to use and ideal for food and water storage.”

Formulation and Applications

Reactamine 760 is a 100% solids, aromatic hybrid polyurethane lining technology. In addition to its use as a lining for food and potable water storage, the coating is designed to protect steel and concrete surfaces from aggressive chemical attack, making it suitable for secondary containment projects.

Carboline says Reactamine 760 has been used on multiple projects, ranging from variety of steel tanks and clarifiers to a 150-by-100-foot flume and multiple concrete manholes. It has also been used in aggressive industrial settings for the power industry, the company says.

“Reactamine 760 is resistant to acidic environments, which is key in protecting substrates against microbiologically induced corrosion (MIC) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) found in the wastewater treatment process,” said Mitch Connor, Carboline’s Senior Market Manager for Water & Wastewater.

Carboline has been a global manufacturer and supplier of high-performance coatings for the industrial, commercial and architectural industries since 1947.
