Amercoat 240 Universal epoxy coating

Product Data
  • Formulated for direct-to-metal application with excellent substrate wetting while retaining excellent edge coverage
  • Exceptional corrosion protection in salt and fresh water immersion and corrosive chemical environments
  • Surface tolerant, lowers the cost of surface preparation
  • Excellent adhesion to tight rust
  • Compatible with water jetted or hand and power tool cleaned surfaces.
  • Low temperature cure down to 0°F (-18°C) without additives or alternate curing agents
  • Fast dry-to-recoat and rapid handling properties
  • High-build (up to 12 mils) in one coat
  • Abrasion resistant
  • Very low solvent content meets VOC requirements, reduces the risk of pinholing and solvent entrapment at the substratecoating interface, often a major cause of coating failure with conventional epoxies and lower solids systems.
