Customers can choose from a full range of coatings offering optimum corrosion and chemical resistance depending on the environment (immersive or atmospheric), the substrate to be protected (concrete or steel) and specific performance requirements. The extended portfolio combines the PPG RAVEN and PPG AQUATAFLEX coating systems for aggressive subsea concrete applications with a variety of proven PPG coating solutions for exterior and interior steel tanks, ponds and facility infrastructure.
“PPG is pleased to offer a much broader range of coating solutions for wastewater infrastructure customers through our recent acquisition of VERSAFLEX and its Raven coating systems, which are used in the water industries. , wastewater and manhole rehabilitation, ”said Juanjo Ardid, vice president of PPG. president, protective and marine coatings, United States and Canada. “Wastewater treatment plant operators, engineers and contractors can benefit from a single resource for proven coating products, backed by extensive technical support, application expertise, specification tools and the distribution network. from PPG. “
While all PPG wastewater coating systems are designed to resist aggressive corrosion and provide long-lasting performance, each is formulated for specific end-use requirements. These include:
PPG Raven 405 High Build Epoxy Coating: Provides enhanced protection and broad chemical resistance, particularly to hydrogen sulfide gases (H2S), for tough concrete immersion applications such as wet wells, digesters and looks.
PPG AquataFlextri-Hybrid Series: Combines the chemical resistance of an epoxy, the flexibility of a polyurethane and the rapid curing of a polyurea for concrete substrates subject to structural movement or requiring rapid return to service such as basins filters, clarifiers and reservoirs.
PPG Raven755 Cement-Based Resurfacer: Rehabilitates deteriorated concrete as the first coat in a system with PPG Raven 405 or PPG AquataFlex series coatings for manholes, wet wells, filter ponds and headworks.
PPG SIGMASHIELD Series: Provides high abrasion and impact resistance for steel immersion applications due to its ultra-high film construction with wide application thicknesses.
PPG NOVAGUARD 890 Novolac Epoxy Coating: Provides excellent resistance to a wide range of chemicals and solvents, including H2S, for direct-to-metal applications.
PPG AMERCOAT Interior Epoxy Coatings and PPG AMERLOCK® Exterior Epoxy Coatings: Provide versatile, surface tolerant coatings for atmospheric steel applications in tanks and ponds.
PPG supports its portfolio of wastewater treatment systems with a technical service team that assists with project design and product specification to ensure a recommendation tailored to the specific environment.
