ChemLine® EF

A Coating with Superior Chemical Resistance and High Temperature Resistance, Based On An Ethanol Solven Formulation.
ChemLine® EF is a high functionality, two component thermoset polymer coating formulated with ethanol as the reduction solvent. ChemLine® EF assures that no hydrocarbon contamination can occur in alcohol cargoes from the lining. ChemLine® EF is formulated with a unique polymer, that when polymerized, cross-links up to 784 times per molecule. This results in a virtually impermeable, highly chemical resistant coating.

ChemLine® EF’s higher cross-link density and alcohol solvent formulation means:

  • Outstanding chemical resistance to alcohols, acids, caustics and solvents.
  • High heat resistance
  • High abrasion resistance
  • No risk of hydrocarbon contamination of cargoes
  • Suitable for food cargoes
