VERSATILE COATING SYSTEMS CAN SOLVE THE SELECTION PROBLEMS IN ORGANIC FINISHING

The advantages of using paints based on chlorinated rubber resin for long-lasting surface protection of steel in aggregsive environments are noted. Such paints dry solely by solvent evaporation and are therefore quick-drying irrespective of environmental temperature. In addition, high-build chlorinated rubber-based paints have thixotropic properties and when freshly applied, exert a slight solvent action on underlying dry coats. The protective finishes produced with chlorinated rubber-based coatings have been found to be sufficiently durable to withstand the mechanical damage which can occur during the handling and erection of factory-finished steelwork. This particular feature can be used to advantage in the construction industry where the site environment can create problems during initial plant painting.
