Hardener 4095 AL

Food - Grade Epoxy Coating

  • EU REACH certified and FDA certified under 21 CFR 175.300
  • Fast hardening in film
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Guarantees the respect of the taste and flavour of beverages contained

RESOLCOAT 4090 AL epoxy coating is formulated in replacement of older systems containing aromatic amines which can cause health problems among workers.

RESOLCOAT 4090 AL is a 100% dry extract anti-corrosion epoxy coating formulated to provide maximum resistance to chemicals agents. It is designed to be used as a protective liner for tanks and machinery in contact with food products.
This coating is in compliance with FDA - CFR 175.300 for 8% Alcohol at 120ºF (49°C) / 24h. The system has a short hardening time in film enabling fast applications and reduced down time of existing installations. It provides a smooth, non-porous high gloss finish.

4090 AL / 4095 AL is indicated for beverages applications Unlike other formulas containing benzyl alcohol that transmits a sour almond taste to the foods & liquids in contact, this system guarantees a tasteless & odourless coating.

RESOLCOAT 4090 AL may be applied as a coating but also as laminating resin when thin glass reinforcements are necessary, specially in the case of tanks repairs.
It can be applied by brush roller or airless while guaranteeing low toxicity working conditions to the users.

On porous surfaces it is recommended to prime the surface with a coat of 150g/m2 of 1010AD resin with 1015 hardener.
