New Product Announcement: Wastewater Lining
Global coatings, linings and fireproofing manufacturer Carboline Company has announced the release of Hydroplate 6500, a 100% solids, ultra-high build epoxy lining for concrete and steel assets in severe wastewater service.
According to an emailed release from Carboline, Hydroplate 6500 is glass-flake reinforced to offer abrasion and impact resistance with a formulation capable of achieving over 250 mils in a single pass.
“We are thrilled to introduce Hydroplate 6500 to the market,” said Carboline Water and Wastewater Market Manager Jeremy Sukola.
“This is a game-changing solution for the owner, specifier, and applicator alike; an ultra-high build lining that offers exceptional resistance to hydrogen sulfide and biogenic corrosion, with an extremely short return to service time and absolutely unmatched simplicity in its application.”
Reportedly engineered for easier and more consistent application, Hydroplate 6500 can offer an extended pot life, allowing application through either single-leg or plural-component equipment at spray pressures down to 2,500 psi—less than half the required pressure to apply competing 100% solids high-build linings.
Additionally, the release states that downtime and costs are minimized from Hydroplate 6500’s rapid return-to-service time of 10 hours.
Carboline states that by adding Hydroplate 6500 to its water and wastewater product mix, Carboline can become the only manufacturer to support in-house production of polyurethane leak sealing grouts, structural concrete resurfacers and 100% solids lining solutions.
The product reportedly succeeded in its ASTM G210 Severe Wastewater Analysis Testing (SWAT), showcasing its fit-for-service formulation.
“Hydroplate 6500 represents a significant leap forward in corrosion control in the water and wastewater infrastructure space,” Sukola stated. “Our commitment to innovation has driven us to create a product that not only meets, but far exceeds the expectations of our customers."
