Safely Handling Coatings

Safety Procedures for Handling MarineLine®, ChemLine® and GuardLine® Polymer Coatings

A Commitment to Safety

Advanced Polymer Coatings is dedicated to providing high quality polymer coating products for industrial applications. The same concern and pride that we exercise in our manufacturing should also be extended to the “human element” of the coating operation – namely the application of APC’s coatings to various surfaces.

Advanced Polymer Coatings believes in fully protecting the people who apply these coatings. We strongly recommend closely following the procedures shown in this safety brochure, including the use of personal protective equipment (PPE). This will help to ensure the safety of these individuals. Please contact our application engineers for any additional questions you may have regarding the application and safety procedures for our coatings.
