WATERARMOR™

thermoplastic coatings

The functional​ thermoplastic solution.

OVERVIEW

The functional​ thermoplastic solution.

Coatings for functional parts and components normally need to fulfill very stringent requirements. The high acid content in soils and weathering factors create the ideal environment for corrosion. Also, the coating itself is exposed to extreme mechanical stress on a constant basis.

WATERARMOR™ is a single-layer, BPA-free, holiday-free, thermoplastic coating solution designed for heavy corrosion protection for water pipes and fittings.

How does it work?

WATERARMOR™ is formulated with functionalized polyethylene copolymer that is controlled, tested and certified for marine or water infrastructure. It can be

applied by fluidized bed, electrostatic spray, flame spray, or extrusion.

Main features

  • An impermeable barrier for increased durability.
  • Unique one layer, primer-less coating.
  • Chemical, corrosion, and abrasion resistance.
  • Little to no maintenance for reduced costs.
  • Certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF).
  • Reparable coating for extended product life.
  • Can replace several layers of conventional protective coating.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
