Series N140 | Pota-Pox Plus

Generic Type Polyamidoamine Epoxy
Common Usage Innovative potable water coating which offers high-build edge protection and allows for application at a wide range of temperatures (down to 35°F or 2°C with 44-700 Accelerator). For use on the interior and exterior of steel or concrete tanks, reservoirs, pipes, valves, pumps and equipment in potable water service.
Colors 1211 Red, 1255 Beige, 00WH Tnemec White, 15BL Tank White, 35GR Black and 39BL Delft Blue. 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.
