Kemko® coatings are intended primarily for use in industrial applications as protection from corrosive acids, alkalis and solvents as well as fuels, oils and greases. All of our coatings are 100% solids, are low odor, are not flammable, have very low shrinkage, contain no solvents, and have very low VOCs so they can be used almost anywhere. Most are capable of being installed on damp substrates and we also make a couple of underwater coatings for fresh or salt water. A wide selection of epoxies and a quick curing, very flexible polyurea membrane are available with the capability of resisting up to 94% sulfuric acid.
Kemko® epoxy-based coatings require no primer but in some circumstances the desired film thickness may require a build up of multiple coats. Polyurea Membrane offers high flexibility and very fast cure (can be opened in ~2 hours) without the need to spray it through specialized (heated impingement mixing) equipment—it can be placed manually by roller or squeegee. All of these coatings can be skid-proofed by embedding sand or grit into the surface layer or back-rolling a thin coverage over the broadcast particles. Please call us with your specific need or refer to our chemical resistance guide (PDF file).
All of our epoxy products are 0 VOC and compliant with the criteria for the IEQ4.1 low-emitting adhesives, sealants credit by the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in energy and Environmental Design) program.
