Kemko® 048, Marine Structure HiBuild Coat is a two- component, solvent-free, epoxy coating designed for single coat application on concrete, steel and wood marine structures. It may be applied above or below the waterline and in both salt and fresh water environments. Typical applications include coating of concrete piers, seawalls, dock floors, drainage ditches, abutments, sewer and outfall pipes; protection of steel structure surfaces such as pilings, drilling rigs, production platforms, ship hulls, buoys, well jackets and bulkheads; and, protective coating of wooden structures such as pilings, piers, shelters and power poles.
Unlike many other marine coatings, Kemko® 048 will bond to properly prepared dry, damp, wet, immersed and submerged substrates and cures to a tough, water resistant, impervious protective surface. The coating is freeze-thaw resistant and will not embrittle but will acquire a chalky surface when exposed to sunlight. Kemko® 048 is a 100% solids product and does not contain volatile organic solvents (VOC’s). It has a convenient 2:1 (by vol.) Mixing ratio.Technical Data Sheet
