Dampney Manufactures Advanced Coatings

For more than 80 years Dampney Company, Inc. has manufactured technically advanced, corrosion resistant protective coatings. Complete testing facilities are available to help solve coating and corrosion problems and to evaluate existing and new protective coatings, systems and raw materials.

The company's line includes Apexior Number 3, a single component air cure coating for immersion in fresh and salt water. Designed as easy to apply, it is formulated for the waterside corrosion prevention of metal surfaces. It has outstanding wetting properties and adheres well to power tooled cleaned areas. Apexior Number 3 is resistant to continuous immersion in fresh or salt water as well as frequently wet or high humidity environments.

Apexior Number 3 prevents pitting corrosion and stops corrosion that has already begun — except for badly pitted areas. It aids in the reduction and prevention of tight bonding of hard scale and allows for easy cleaning and removal of scale buildup. Apexior Number 3 performs ideally with water treatment.

Epodur 786 is a 100 percent solids high build epoxy coating, which can be applied to wet or submerged surfaces and will cure in both fresh and sea water at temperatures as low as 30°F (-1°C).

Epodur 786 protects steel surfaces subjected to immersion in fresh or salt water, exposure in tidal or splash zones, or burial in soil.

It is effective on the interiors of tanks and lines containing brine, crude oil, petroleum products, sewage or strong alkalies.

It is resistant to a wide range of chemical fumes, mists and splashes. Suitability for prolonged immersion in specific chemicals should be determined by tests prior to use. Epodur 786 can be mixed with sand to make a grout for use in filling cracks in concrete, or for repairing eroded areas.
