New Product Announcement: Epoxy Lining


At the beginning of the month, protective coatings manufacturer Tnemec Company Inc. announced the release of its new phenalkamine epoxy lining. Series 21 Epoxoline is designed for use on potable water tanks, water pipes, pumps, valves and fittings, for protection on both concrete and steel substrates.

According to the emailed release, the two-component, phenalkamine epoxy is specially formulated to meet the more stringent NSF 600 extraction requirements coming to the industry in January 2023. Series 21 also conforms to the requirements of AWWA D102-21 Inside Coating Systems No. 1, 2, 5 and 6.

“The new NSF 600 requirements greatly reduce the maximum allowable limits of certain solvents often used in epoxies,” said Mark Thomas, Vice President of Marketing at Tnemec. “We formulated this product with a special solvent blend that offers easy application, good cure response, and meets the new NSF 600 requirements. Series 21 will offer our customers a product they can rely on into the future.”

Additionally, the epoxy also provides high-build properties (up to 20 mils DFT), a high-solids formulation (at 82%) and long-lasting protection of all concrete and steel potable water assets.
