Coating Specification

If local temperatures are around freezing there is a long overcoat period. The systems, actual existing film esp. over coated epoxy layer, proper surface preparation, and coating application procedures should be selected, and then tested in a controlled laboratory. Design factors, statements, specific recommendations should always be valued. Please consult with Phila Coatings (USA) Inc. Technical Department before and throughout the testing process.
