SÄKAPHEN’s range of cold cured linings and coatings provide high end corrosion protection against an array of wide ranging aggressive mediums. The epoxy and vinyl ester hybrids guarantee long term protection against both highly acidic and alkali media with limitless application possibilities regardless of substrate, equipment type and location. The outstanding performance of the SÄKAPHEN cold cure range surpasses expectations for both internal and external protection. These products are applied by either SÄKAPHEN in Gladbeck, Germany or its international network of authorized applicators.
Additionally, and if required, the cold cure range of products can be site applied by suitably qualified and assessed third party applicators if contracted to local petrochemical facilities.
Following cure caused by a catalytic reaction between the base component, hardener and in some cases an additional chemical additive for acceleration, the coating lining film exhibits a hard substantial finish and dependent on the product selected, is resistant to water vapor diffusion (ΔT 85°C).
The SÄKAPHEN range of cold cure linings and coatings offer an extremely high level of chemical resistance at temperatures up to 100°C in wet conditions and higher temperatures in dry operating conditions.
The SÄKAPHEN range of cold cure linings and coatings also provide high-quality insulation properties, thus preventing galvanic corrosion between dissimilar metals. Electrically conductive linings and coatings for use in the storage and transportation of flammable / inflammable liquids are also available. Consequently, this minimises investment and maintenance costs and significantly lowers the carbon footprint.
All SÄKAPHEN cold cure linings and coatings are self-priming, formulated and developed for direct to metal application and once cured are fully machinable. Both linings and coatings are applied in multiple layers by spray, brush, roller or trowel. Plural feed hydracat or similar application equipment is not required. The SÄKAPHEN cold cure range of linings and coatings are complementary to the single-component thermosetting heat cured range of SÄKAPHEN products.
The majority of SÄKAPHEN cold cured linings and coatings are low-solvent, containing ultra-high solid products with a volume of solid (wt.%) of 80% or more.
