Series 30 | Spra-Saf EN

Generic Type Hydrophobic Acrylic Polymer
Common Usage An advanced technology, direct-to-metal, corrosion-inhibiting coating with very good early flash-rust resistance, as well as long term corrosion protection and weathering properties. Formulated to resist mildew growth on the paint film. Provides good gloss and color retention on structural steel, tanks, towers, pipes and similar structures. May also be used on a wide range of other substrates and many aged coatings, interior or exterior (test patch is recommended per Technical Bulletin 98-10). Application methods include “dry-fall” under certain conditions (see Application).
Note: Spra-Saf EN’s “dry-fall” characteristics help reduce the potential for overspray problems on buildings and surrounding property.
