Devchem 253HS and Interline 994, two new railcar linings developed by AkzoNobel, were designed to withstand a variety of conditions, and one has gained FDA approval.

Devchem 253HS is formulated as a high solids, one-coat epoxy novolac lining that is designed to resist a range of corrosive chemicals and solvents under various conditions.

Interline 994, on the other hand, is a two-component, chemical-resistant phenolic epoxy novolac lining that was approved by the FDA for the interiors of railcars that carry harsh corrosive liquids and oils at high temperatures, including molten sulfur.


Devchem 253HS and Interline 994, two new railcar linings developed by AkzoNobel, were designed to withstand a variety of conditions, and one has gained FDA approval.

“These easy-to-use, fast-drying, chemical-resistant linings dramatically increase the level of protection in railcar interiors,” Tim Schaffer, AkzoNobel’s North America key account manager for Rail, said in a statement. 

“Whether transporting high temperature crude oil, hydrocarbons and vegetable oils, plastic pellets or highly corrosive solids like potash and rock salt, our focused mission is to help the rail industry increase productivity, ensure compliance and extend maintenance lifecycles through advanced coating technologies and technical support.”

Product Details

Devchem 253HS is available in a semi-gloss green, and can be applied with an airless spray, air spray or a brush. The company recommends application in the 14.1-18.8 mils wet film thickness range for a dry film thickness of 12-16 mils.
Interline 994 is also available in buff and grey, both semi-gloss, and can be applied with an airless spray, brush or roller. The product is recommended for application at 5.7-11.4 mils WFT for a DFT of 4-8 mils.
AkzoNobel’s other rail car interior and exterior coating offerings emcompass high build, low-VOC products that include chemical-resistant linings, epoxies, polyurethanes and others.
