Tougher coatings for water industry

Paul Boughton
Global leader in thermoplastic powder coatings, Plascoat, has introduced its PPA 571 H polymer coating for the water industry.
Plascoat’s new improved polymer coating grade for the water industry  – PPA 571H – is essentially a tougher formulation and has been designed to cope with virtually any water utility installation worldwide and give extended life even in harsh environments. Its primary application is in the coating of underground and above ground water fittings made from ductile iron and its deployment in service saves water utilities both time and cost in stopped leakages and system malfunctions.

Plascoat’s generic PPA 571 coating already comes with a wide range of potable water approvals including NSF61 and conforms to the requirements of FDA food contact. The ‘H’ version simply extends the performance of the coating – enabling the fittings and pipes to cope with the harshest and most aggressive underground environments and temperatures – including a groundswell of need and demand now coming from hot countries in the Middle East and in Africa.
