Series 161HS | Tneme-Fascure

Generic Type Polyamide Epoxy
Common Usage A high-solids, low VOC, pure polyamide epoxy offering excellent protection to a wide range of substrates in atmospheric and immersion environments. Its fast-cure characteristics are ideal for shop or low temperature application. Versatile use as a primer, intermediate, or topcoat it is complimented by a variety of finish coat options.
Colors Refer to Tnemec Color Guide. Note: Epoxies chalk with extended exposure to sunlight and may yellow on aging. 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 accelerate any potential yellowing. Note: Special color bases are recommended for immersion service. Contact your Tnemec representative for more information.
