Color Coat

DESCRIPTION  Tapecoat Color Coat is a 60 mil VOC Exempt, UV resistant, cold applied, self hardening, wax based tape designed to protect piping and metal structures from damage and deterioration caused by corrosion. These multi-environment coatings are appropriate for use above or below grade, in dry, damp or wet operating conditions. The Color Coat encapsulates the surface in order to protect it, this allows for easy inspection of the substrate and repair of the coating. The tape is used with the Color Coat Primer which completely wets out the substrate surface and displaces any moisture.
Color Coat is durable, aesthetically pleasing and available in a wide variety of colors including a full range of Safety Code colors. These colors include Gray, White, Yellow, Blue, Green, Red and Black
SUBSTRATE COMPATIBILITY  Steel, Stainless Steel, Ductile Iron, Other Metals, FBE, PE, PP, Concrete 
RECOMMENDED USE  Ideal for protecting structures such as bridge crossings, riser pipe, flanges, valves, and all types of piping and metal structures. Especially suited for vaults and close quarter applications because it is virtually odorless
SURFACE PREPARATION  SSPC SP-2 Hand Tool Cleaning, SSPC SP-3 Power Tool Cleaning or SSPC SP-6/ NACE No. 3 Commercial Blast Cleaning 
PRIMER  Tapecoat Color Coat requires a primer to ensure maximum effectiveness of the system. Apply a minimum of 4 mils of Tapecoat Color Coat Primer using a gloved hand or by mechanical means. The Color Coat can be applied immediately following the primer application
OPTIONAL OUTERWRAP  For increased abrasion resistance the Color Coat can be wrapped with Tapecoat Rugged Wrap. This coating is a fiberglass saturated with a moisture curing urethane. When activated with water the Rugged Wrap forms a hard, UV resistant shell protecting. Rugged Wrap is available in the same colors as the Color Coat
REFERENCE  Color Coat and the Color Coat Primer together meet all of the performance criteria listed in the most recent revisions of:
