Epoxy Piping In South Kansas City

We offer epoxy coating of hot and cold copper water line and sewer lines as an option. This application takes 2-3 days and you will have no dry wall holes and no mess to redo and clean up. Epoxy coatings are generally packaged in two parts that are mixed prior to application. The two parts consist of 1) an epoxy resin which is cross-linked with 2) a co-reactant or hardener. Epoxy coatings are formulated based upon the performance requirements for the end product. When properly catalyzed and applied, epoxies produce a hard, chemical and solvent resistant finish.

They are typically used on concrete and steel to give resistance to water, alkali and acids. It is the specific selection and combination of the epoxy component and the hardener component that determines the final characteristics and suitability of the epoxy coating for a given environment.

Key Issues

  • Substrate Types: Steel, Concrete, etc. Is it suitable for the coating and the environmental exposure?
  • Surface Prep: Are the requirements adequate?
  • Temperature/Variations: Normally above 55°F for the first 72 hours of drying, and at least 5°F above the dew point.
  • Humidity: Normally below 85% required.
  • Environmental Exposure: Is the coating suitable for the conditions it will be exposed to?
  • Performance Requirements: What performance characteristics will the coating be exposed to? (i.e. abrasion, flexibility, heat resistance, etc.)
  • Recoatability: Will it be required and within what time frame?
  • Application Methods: Is the coating designed for the specific method? (i.e. spray, brush, roll, squeegee/trowel)
  • Cost/Value Considerations: Cost per mil per square foot per year of life expectancy.
  • Film Build: Is the coating able to comply with the specifications?
  • Air: Movement It is very important to have fresh air circulating over the surface during drying.
  • Induction Time: Critical, especially during cold weather and high humidity.
  • Pot Life: Do not exceed. Coating may appear usable but will exhibit poor performance.
  • Aesthetics: Be aware that some epoxies yellow more than others. More noticeable in whites and off-whites.
  • Odor: Will odor be a concern in or around the application area? Solvent based, water-based, high solids epoxies.
