Two new U.S. Food and Drug Administration-compliant linings have been added to AkzoNobel’s International-brand protective coatings portfolio.

The products were developed to better support the North American rail industry’s increasing environmental requirements and protective demands on rail cars, the paints and coatings maker says.

Two new FDA-compliant linings from AkzoNobel's International brand were developed to protect the interiors of tanker and hopper cars from corrosion and abrasion while transporting a variety of wet and dry goods.

Whether used to coat new rail cars or provide maintenance to existing fleets, the FDA-compliant linings are designed to protect the interiors of tanker and hopper cars from corrosion and abrasion while transporting dry and wet bulk foods, oils and liquids, and plastic pellets, it adds.

AkzoNobel describes its new Enviroline 2900LV as ideal for both liquid and dry cargoes. The high solids, ultra-low VOC lining offers chemical resistance and can be easily applied in a single coat with fast cure times, the company says.

The new Enviroline 2405 lining, it says, provides superior flexibility and low surface energy for enhanced cargo release. The high solids, ultra-low VOC coating is suitable for both liquid and dry cargoes, and can be applied in a single coat, using single leg equipment, it adds.

“For more than a decade, AkzoNobel’s International protective coatings brand has served the North American rail industry with high-performance protective coatings, linings, and finishes that can stand up to a wide variety of cargoes and conditions,” says North America Protective Coatings Linings Manager Larry Haack.

“The new FDA-compliant product offerings represent AkzoNobel’s ongoing commitment to providing this market the coatings technologies they need to protect equipment assets, ensure compliance, extend maintenance lifecycles, and enhance productivity,” he adds.
