SÄKAPHEN Si 57 EG is a high-quality single-component epoxy-phenolic thermosetting heat cured lining, resistant to water vapor diffusion (≤ ΔT 85°C). Si 57 EG is self-priming and formulated for direct to metal application.
Si 57 EG is chemically resistant to aqueous alkaline to weak acidic media and vapors of all types of cooling water including brackish, river and sea water.
The film lining surface is hard elastic and once polymerized, the lining is fully machinable with a formaldehyde concentration level of less than 0.1% and is also resistant to temperature fluctuations.
Fields of application: For the lining of Heat Exchangers, Condensers and Evaporators, Turbo Machinery Housings, Uninsulated Tanks, Process Tanks and Vessels, Condensate Tanks, Desalination Plant, Thermal Degasifiers and Pipelines. Suitable for items that are exposed to hot water and steam in neutral and alkaline environments. Si 57 EG is also resistant to water vapor diffusion.

If non-insulated equipment that is coated reaches ∆T > 30°C, this may lead to water vapor diffusion. The SÄKAPHEN ‘EG’ range of linings allows for a high temperature resistant thin film lining to be applied, even with a temperature divergence.
