SÄKAPHEN Si 57 E is a high-quality hydrophobic single-component epoxy-phenolic based thermosetting heat cured lining. Si 57 E is self-priming and developed for direct to metal application.
Si 57 E is chemically resistant to a variety of substances ranging from strong alkalis to weak acidic media, salt solutions, greases, oils and gases and all types of cooling water including brackish, river, sea water and deionized water. Si 57 E is also resistant to temperature fluctuations.
The lining film surface is hard elastic with exceptional hydrophobic properties, preventing caking, fouling and incrustation. Once polymerized, the lining is fully machinable with a formaldehyde concentration level of less than 0.1%.
For the lining and coating of Heat Exchangers, Turbines, Impellers, Pipework, Meter Provers (Prover Loops), Waste Water Treatment Plants, Centrifuges and Tanks.
