A new epoxy from Wolverine Coatings Corporation is designed to protect potable water tanks without the need for plural-component application equipment and special techniques, the company says.

LiquaTile 1172, distributed exclusively through NSP Specialty Products, is a 100 percent solids epoxy certified for use as a protective coating on steel and concrete storage tanks with a volume greater than 50 gallons, and pipes 16 inches or larger.

LiquaTile 1172 is certified for use as a protective coating on steel and concrete storage tanks with a volume greater than 50 gallons, and pipes 16 inches or larger.

The product can be applied via brush and roller, or via airless spray equipment, with no need for special equipment or curing procedures, the manufacturer says. The coated substrate can be returned to service in five days, according to Wolverine.

The product cures quickly, exhibits low odor and high durability, and is UL Quality Certified to U.S. and Canadian NSF/ANSI Standard 61 and Standard 372, the company says. It is self-priming on a properly prepared steel surface, according to Wolverine (SSPC-SP 10 for immersion service or SSPC-SP 6 for non-immersion service). As a 100 percent solids epoxy, it produces no VOCs.

Larry Harrison, NSP's president, said the company is excited about the industry problems LiquaTile 1172 could solve. “The ability to easily apply a low-odor coating with 1172’s performance, while raising the bar on clean water standards, is something the potable water market has not previously seen,” he said.
