3M Scotchkote has introduced Abrasion Resistant Epoxy Coating (AREC) 328, a 100% solids, two-part epoxy system designed for directional drilling, rocky terrain, and other rugged applications.
Combining a traditional liquid epoxy with patent pending technology that enables enhanced impact resistance, gouge resistance, and flexibility, an AREC coating can be used in place of a conventional field applied Abrasion Resistant Overcoat (ARO).
3M says an AREC system is an alternative to a conventional field-applied Abrasion Resistant Overcoat.
3M says the product boasts strong adhesion to both metal and FBE and is effective for use as a primary corrosion protection coating for applications which require high flexibility after cure, in which long-term adhesion is critical.
The coating has been formulated to achieve a coating thickness of 45 mils/1150 microns in one coat. If additional thickness is required, additional coats may be applied within four hours of the initial coat at temperature of 70°F/20°C.
The system can be used as a joint coating, a pipe coating or refurbishing coating.
The line consists of 3M Scotchkote Abrasion Resistant Epoxy Coating 328 - 4L, 10L, 68L and 760L.
