Generic Type: Two-component modified Epoxy Polyamide.

General Properties: Solokote-3160 is a high solids, rust inhibiting heavy bodied, high build epoxy primer/finish with excellent build characteristics, developed for use as a primer/finish one coat system or as a primer in a high build multi coat system depending upon performance requirements. The product contains optimum amounts of corrosion inhibiting pigments for prevention of rust undercutting. The unique formulation of the coating provides excellent water and crude oil resistance and can be applied over a tight rust surface in non-immersion conditions.

Recommended Uses: Interior & Exterior of brine water, process & treating tanks, tank roofs, pipe racks, & structures subject to marine or chemical exposure where corrosion protection & appearance is desired.
