Silicone Alkyd Painting System for New Steel


This specification covers a complete silicone alkyd painting system for structural steel. This system is suitable for use on parts or structures exposed in Environmental Zones 2A (frequently wet by fresh water) including high humidity, infrequent immersion, and mild chemical atmospheres. The primary virtue of this system is the exterior durability and minimum deterioration of the silicone alkyd finish as shown by chalk resistance, gloss retention, and color retention. In addition, the finish paint allows for a choice of colors.
