Generic Type Advanced Thermoset Solution Fluoropolymer
Common Usage An exterior finish coat especially designed for tanks and other exposed steel substrates. HydroFlon has outstanding resistance to ultra-violet light degradation providing unprecedented long-term gloss and color retention with excellent resistance to abrasion and chalking. It is aesthetically pleasing and recommended for coastal environments and on structures where extremely long-term maintenance cycles are desired. NOT FOR IMMERSION SERVICE.
Colors Refer to Tnemec Color Guide. Note: Certain colors may require multiple coats depending on method of application and finish coat color. The preceding coat should be in the same color family, but noticeably different. Upon selection of the finish coat color (Series 700), the intermediate coat will be selected by Tnemec's color lab.
