To enhance efficiencies for asset owners in the oil & gas storage tank segment in the EMEAI region, Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings has launched its new epoxy coating offering mildew-resistant corrosion protection with a long-lasting, more aesthetic finish.

The high-solids, high-build, fast-drying polyamide Macropoxy 646MR primer builds on the existing proven Macropoxy 646 technology, offering high chemical and abrasion resistance inside as well as outside of the tank with the added formulation of outstanding mildew resistance.

The new Sherwin-Williams solution keeps tanks and pipelines working more efficiently with a more aesthetic finish than previously available. With low volatile organic compounds (VOCs), application can be performed on site or in shop by brush, roller or airless spray.

“This coating is simple to apply without having to completely remove existing systems, and resists the growth of mildew on the exterior of tanks or external pipelines,” says Michael Harrison from Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings.

Designed for use in maintenance, repair or in new construction, Macropoxy 646MR is an ideal durable corrosion protection coating for storage tanks, fixed roofs, floating roofs, vessels and pipelines.

The range of protective lining products offered by Sherwin-Williams is tailormade to each specification, combining exceptional anti-corrosive performance with effective chemical resistance.
