Mascoat, provider of thermal insulating and sound damping coatings, is offering two new primers for use in conjunction with the company’s line of industrial coatings. The complete system solution will simultaneously provide energy retention, radiant heat gain protection, and a personnel shield from burns.

Mascoat 250P Epoxy is an aluminum high-solids epoxy mastic primer that provides excellent corrosion protection over marginally prepared substrates up to 250 ˚F (121 ˚C). The two-part coating, with a useful pot life, is formulated to perform under Mascoat’s insulating coatings. It can also be top-coated with epoxies, polyurethanes and polysiloxanes. The technology will be predominantly used on structural steel surfaces, including: steel tanks, barges, refineries, petrochemical plants, power plants, railcars, pulp and paper mills, and other facilities where Mascoat has successful case histories.

Mascoat 400DFP is a dry fall modified copolymer primer designed for heated substrates up to 400 ˚F (200 ˚C). After application, this single-pack technology will dry to a powder within 10-20 feet. Importantly, it can be safely used in areas where overspray damage to nearby cars and equipment would be a concern. It assures maximum adhesion and corrosion protection even in limited surface preparation areas and does not require a heat cure. Engineered specifically for heavy industrial equipment, M-400 DFP may be used on any service area ranging from ambient to 400 ˚F (200 ˚C) for premium corrosion protection.

“Our water-based insulating coatings require a primer when applied to ferrous substrates, and these primers allow us to fully service a client’s needs for an application,” said Robert Browning, Vice President of Sales for Mascoat. Customers will have a single source for materials needed for an insulating coatings application. Whether they are trying to save energy costs, protect workers from burns on hot substrates, or reduce solar loading, they can be confident that their assets will be fully protected for years to come with Mascoat’s line of performance primers and insulating coatings.”
