Series 161 | Tneme-Fascure

Generic Type Polyamide Epoxy
Common Usage Low temperature-cure, corrosion-resistant coating for protection against abrasion, immersion and mild chemical contact. Fast recoat at 75°F (24°C).
Colors Refer to Tnemec Color Guide. Note: Epoxies chalk with extended exposure to sunlight. Lack of ventilation, incomplete mixing, miscatalyzation or the use of heaters that emit carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide during application and initial stages of curing may cause yellowing to occur.
