Mascoat has announced the launch of two new primers for use in conjunction with the company’s successful line of industrial coatings.

It said: “The addition of these primers to its technology backbone will allow Mascoat to better serve its customers with a single source for coating systems that protect equipment from corrosion for 20+ years. In addition, the complete system solution will simultaneously provide energy retention, radiant heat gain protection, and a personnel shield from burns.”

Mascoat 250P Epoxy is an aluminium high solids epoxy mastic primer that provides “excellent corrosion protection over marginally prepared substrates up to 250˚F (121˚C)”.

The two-part coating, with a useful pot life, is formulated to perform under Mascoat’s insulating coatings. It can also be top-coated with epoxies, polyurethanes, and polysiloxanes. The technology will be predominantly used on structural steel surfaces, including; steel tanks, barges, refineries, petrochemical plants, power plants, railcars, pulp & paper mills, and other facilities.

Mascoat 400DFP is a dry fall modified copolymer primer is designed for heated substrates up to 400˚F (200˚C).

After application, Mascoat said this single pack technology will dry to a powder within 10-20 feet. Importantly, it can be safely used in areas where overspray damage to nearby cars and equipment would be a concern. It assures maximum adhesion and corrosion protection even in limited surface preparation areas and does not require a heat cure.

Engineered specifically for heavy industrial equipment, M-400 DFP may be used on any service area ranging from ambient to 400˚F (200˚C) for premium corrosion protection.

“Our water-based insulating coatings require a primer when applied to ferrous substrates, and these primers allow us to fully service a client’s needs for an application” said Robert Browning, vice president of Sales for Mascoat.

Customers will have a single source for materials needed for an insulating coatings application. Whether they are trying to save energy costs, protect workers from burns on hot substrates, or reduce solar loading, they can be confident that their assets will be fully protected for years to come with Mascoat’s line of performance primers and insulating coatings.”
