Series 91-H2O

Hydro-Zinc

Generic Type

Aromatic Urethane, Zinc-Rich

Common Usage

A two-component, moisture-cured, zinc-rich primer for the interior and exterior of steel potable water tanks. Provides outstanding long-term corrosion resistance when used as a primer in conjunction with other Tnemec potable water tank coatings. It cures quickly and can be topcoated the same day at surface temperatures down to 35°F. Series 91-H_2_O has no maximum recoat time, making it ideally suited as a primer for both sides of plate steel surfaces in water tank fabrication shops. Application methods include “dry-fall” under certain conditions (see Application). Note: When used in conjunction with cathodic protection, anodes or impressed current systems should not provide current demand more negative than –1.05 volts relative to a copper–copper sulfate reference electrode half-cell.
