Aromatic Urethane, Zinc-Rich
A two-component, moisture-cured, zinc-rich primer for the interior and exterior of steel potable water tanks. Provides outstanding long-term corrosion resistance when used as a primer in conjunction with other Tnemec potable water tank coatings. It cures quickly and can be topcoated the same day at surface temperatures down to 35°F. Series 91-H_2_O has no maximum recoat time, making it ideally suited as a primer for both sides of plate steel surfaces in water tank fabrication shops. Application methods include “dry-fall” under certain conditions (see Application). Note: When used in conjunction with cathodic protection, anodes or impressed current systems should not provide current demand more negative than –1.05 volts relative to a copper–copper sulfate reference electrode half-cell.View more product details

---† 50% relative humidity. Note: Refer to product listings on www.nsf.org for specific potable water return to service information. Curing time will vary with surface temperature, humidity and film thickness. Ventilation: When used as a tank lining or in enclosed areas, provide adequate ventilation during application and cure. Reference ventilation guidelines contained in the latest edition of AWWA D 102.
Note: For faster curing, low humidity and low-temperature applications, add No. 44-710 Urethane Accelerator (see separate product data sheet). Note: For cure times to immersion service, reference the specified Tnemec interior topcoat product data sheet.
