Tnemec Company Inc. announced the release of its high-solids epoxy linings, Series 21 Epoxoline. Series 21 Epoxoline is designed for use on potable water tanks, water pipes, pumps, valves, and fittings, providing protection to both concrete and steel substrates. This two-component, phenalkamine epoxy is also specially formulated to meet the more stringent NSF 600 extraction requirements coming to the industry in January 2023. For water tank applications, Series 21 also conforms to the requirements of AWWA D102-21 Inside Coating Systems No. 1, 2, 5, and 6.

“The new NSF 600 requirements greatly reduce the maximum allowable limits of certain solvents often used in epoxies,” said Mark Thomas, vice president-marketing at Tnemec. “We formulated this product with a special solvent blend that offers easy application, good cure response, and meets the new NSF 600 requirements. Series 21 will offer our customers a product they can rely on into the future.”
