ChemLine® EF

A coating with superior chemical resistance and high temperature resistance, based on an Ethanol solvent formulation.

ChemLine 784/32


ChemLine® EF is a high functionality, two component thermoset polymer coating formulated with ethanol as the reduction solvent. ChemLine® EF assures that no hydrocarbon contamination can occur in alcohol cargoes from the lining. ChemLine® EF is formulated with a unique polymer, that when polymerized, cross-links up to 784 times per molecule. This results in a virtually impermeable, highly chemical resistant coating.

ChemLine® EF's higher cross-link density and alcohol solvent formulation means:
  • Outstanding chemical resistance to alcohols, acids, caustics and solvents.
  • High heat resistance
  • High abrasion resistance
  • No risk of hydrocarbon contamination of cargoes
  • Suitable for food cargoes
Provides Superior Chemical Resistance to:
  • 193 Proof Alcohol
  • Ethanol
  • Methanol
  • 98% Sulfuric Acid
  • 37% Hydrochloric Acid
  • 50% Sodium Hydroxide
  • Methylene Chloride
  • Acetic Acid
  • Most acids, alkalis and solvents

Industry Applications

A History of Performance

For more than a decade ChemLine® coatings have withstood the tremendous stresses and extremes of chemical attack and abrasive wear. ChemLine® has been proven worldwide under the most arduous operating conditions, from resisting the most aggressive chemicals to handling hot pipelines in sub-freezing temperatures, with a history of success. Based on this experience, the development of ChemLine® represents a quantum leap in chemical resistant polymer coatings.
