Series 1444


Generic Type

Novolac Vinyl Ester

Common Usage

A high-build, vinyl ester lining with corrosion resistant graphite and other specialty fillers to create a low surface energy film imparting a high degree contact angle resulting in improved non-stick characteristics. Use this enhanced, silica-free material in prevention of process material build-up such as fly ash, caking by-products and slurry deposits. Save time and costs with the improved cleaning properties of this coating versus other non-release type linings. An ideal finish coat for hot caustic and non-silica preferred lining applications such as hydrofluoric acid.
