100%-Solids Linings for the Water/Wastewater Market

Originally Presented: Tuesday, November 10, 2020

Over the last few decades, air quality regulations and other concerns have pushed coating manufacturers to develop more high-solids and even 100%-solids technologies. There are numerous applications within the wastewater market where these technologies have been—and will continue to be—used. In addition, the water storage market, with looming regulations such as NSF 600, is seeing more and more of these products being used for interior linings. These materials offer many advantages, including longer service life, faster return to service, and building at higher film thicknesses. This presentation aims to lay out some of these advantages in greater detail while showcasing some of the areas where 100%-solids linings are commonly used in water and wastewater applications.
