- Easy application and fast cure times
- High performance direct-to-metal or two coat options
Coatings for rail car interiors
FDA compliant Enviroline 3910 is formulated with ultra high solids, resulting in low odor, low VOCs and zero HAPs. It also has excellent edge retentive properties and its low surface energy allows enhanced cargo release properties. It is suitable for use in rail cars, including jumbo hopper cars, intended to transport and store plastic pellets and dry bulk products.
FDA compliant for both liquid and dry cargoes. Excellent for tank cars carrying hydrocarbons and other cargoes. The high solids, ultra low VOC lining offers excellent chemical resistance, is fast cure, and is easily applied in a single coat.
FDA compliant for a wide range of liquid and dry cargoes. The high solids, ultra low VOC lining features superior flexibility and low surface energy, making it ideal for tank cars carrying hydrocarbons and other cargoes, and hopper cars requiring a BPA-free lining. It can be applied in a single coat, using single leg equipment.
Devchem 253 Series
Devchem 253 is a two coat lining system that provides unmatched protection against caustic environments and chemicals such as ethanol and hydrocarbons. Devchem 253S is ideal for molten sulfur cargoes, while the high solids, single coat Devchem 253HS is best suited for tank cars carrying aggressive chemicals.
Great for molten sulfur and tank cars carrying aggressive chemicals such as vegetable oil and fatty acids.
Coatings for rail car exteriors
Designed for use in the rail industry as a one coat direct-to-metal exterior finish or a primer for approved topcoats; Intergard 3500 has excellent edge retentive properties and provides a combination of anti-corrosive barrier protection and abrasion, chemical fume and spillage resistance. Intergard 3500 is formulated with ultra high solids, providing an option where regulations or customer preference require low VOCs and zero HAPs coatings.
A high performance, multipurpose, surface tolerant, two component chemically-cured epoxy semi-gloss coating.
Intergard 345 Series
Provides a combination of anti-corrosive barrier protection, chemical fume and spillage resistance, and good abrasion resistance.
A high performance direct-to-metal epoxy type polysiloxane high gloss coating. It combines the superior gloss retention of a typical polyurethane finish with the corrosion resistance, chemical resistance and abrasion resistance displayed by traditional epoxy technology.
Formulated for long term flexibility on thin gauge steel fabrications such as rail cars.
Interthane 990 Series
A two component acrylic urethane finish providing excellent durability and long term recoatability, the Interthane 990 Series
is suitable for use in both new construction and as a maintenance finish.
A high build, high performance, two component chemically-cured aliphatic urethane gloss enamel that can be applied direct-to-metal.
A high build, high performance, two component, direct-to-metal, fast cure polyaspartic urethane, that is ideal for use in areas where a “quick cure” durable gloss and color retentive coating is required.
A solvent-free, two component repair coating system utilizing advanced epoxy novolac technology.
Fast setting and can be applied by heated, plural component airless spray equipment to offer the ultimate protection in corrosive environments.
Ceilcote Flakeline Series
Ceilcote Flakeline lining systems are reinforced with laminar, micron-thick inert flakes that overlap in multiple layers to form a barrier to permeation. Excellent protection for tank car centerbands.
A complete range of epoxy intumescent passive fire protection (PFP) coatings, the Chartek Series provides safety, durability and efficiency through proven, economical and easy-to-apply solutions, meeting all project and customer requirements.
A two component, low VOC, high solids, modified epoxy barrier coat designed to give long term protection in a single coat application.
