INTERNATIONAL PAINT: Phenolic Coating
Intertherm 228HS is now available for North America’s offshore and onshore industrial markets. This temperature-resistant epoxy phenolic coating reportedly offers higher solids and lower VOCs to provide improved protection to insulated steelwork.
“The industry is well-acquainted with the performance of epoxy phenolic coatings and their ability to help mitigate the incidence of catastrophic CUI failure,” said Chris McMillan, North American Marketing manager. “One of the many characteristics of Intertherm 228HS is its improved film build tolerance. While optimum performance can be achieved in the typical 8 mil system (2 x 100 µm), the coating will perform equally as well at total film builds up to 12 mils (300 µm). This dramatically reduces the risk of cracking from over-application when applied to weld areas and equipment with complex geometries.”
