EnerCote – Water Immersion Grade Ceramic Epoxy

EnerCoteTM – Water immersion grade ceramic epoxy coating and lining system

The Chemistry

The incorporation of renewable raw materials is common in many of our coating systems. But it wasn’t until we came across a specific type of nut shell technology that we decided to build a coating around this specific raw material.

The chemistry involves a benzene ring and a long chemical chain which provides outstanding water and chemical resistance.

EnercoteChemistry

With the incorporation of this chemistry, our laboratory testing found a measurable decrease in water absorption, water permeability and moisture vapour transmission versus other types of liquid polymer coating chemistry.

Water is known as a universal solvent and in industrial applications it accounts for 41% of the global freshwater demand. The solvency nature of water in combination with chlorides, dissolved oxygen, and other chemistry creates an effective electrolyte to initiate corrosion.  The use of an effective barrier to protect the metal substrate from contact with water is a cost effective means of mitigating corrosion and extending equipment life.

EnerCote uses approximately 50 percent nut shell chemistry to offer the highest water resistant barrier film of any coating we could find on the market. Further enhancements to EnerCote, includes the use of our proprietary rheology and ceramic chemistry to create a high performance water lining system that will protect equipment from aqueous corrosion for many decades.

The Product

EnerCote, is a series of epoxy formulations that offers a very high resistance to water permeation up to temperatures of 356 °F. It’s ceramic modification allows it to withstand silt abrasion, high flow and turbulent erosion and impact damage.

The application format of EnerCote offers contractors the versatility to brush and roll, single leg airless spray or plural component spray for maximum production throughput. Quick return to service and low temperature cure allow contractors to apply the coating and inspect or reapply additional coats on a consecutive work shift basis, reducing downtime.

Our range of extreme service and low temperature cure products are unmatched. There are a variety of EnerCote formulas available for every facet of surface protection.
