UHS Epoxy - Sherwin-Williams - Facility Management Product Release

website | Company information

A new formulation of Duraplate UHS ultra high solids epoxy features fluorescing optically active pigments, allowing tank lining applicators to check the coating instantly for pinholes, holidays and other discontinuities and verify uniform coverage and proper film thickness.

Product meets the NSF Standard 61 for potable water tanks of at least 1,000 gallons. The coating uses Duraplate UHS Epoxy as the vehicle to hold the pigment, and is available as a single- or multi-coat application.

Viewed under ultraviolet light, a single-coat system will fluoresce and imperfections will appear black. In a multi-coat system, imperfections will fluoresce under inspection of the topcoat.
