Carboline Releases New High-Build Epoxy Wastewater Lining

High-performance coatings, linings, and fireproofing products manufacturer Carboline (St. Louis, Missouri, USA) recently announced the release of Hydroplate 6500. The product is described as a 100% solids, ultra-high-build epoxy lining for concrete and steel assets in severe wastewater service.

“We are thrilled to introduce Hydroplate 6500 to the market,” says Jeremy Sukola, water and wastewater market manager at Carboline. “This is a game-changing solution for the owner, specifier, and applicator alike; an ultra-high-build lining that offers exceptional resistance to hydrogen sulfide and biogenic corrosion, with an extremely short return to service time and absolutely unmatched simplicity in its application.”

Hydroplate 6500 is glass-flake reinforced to offer excellent abrasion and impact resistance, according to the company, and it features an ultra-high-build formulation capable of achieving over 250 mils (6,350 microns) in a single pass. 

Engineered for easier and more consistent applications, Hydroplate 6500 offers an extended pot life. In turn, this enables application through either single-leg or plural-component equipment at spray pressures down to 2,500 psi (17.2 MPa)—which is less than half of the required pressure to apply 100% solids high-build linings, according to the company.

With a rapid return-to-service time of only 10 hours, downtime and costs are minimized.

By adding Hydroplate 6500 to its water and wastewater product mix, Carboline says it is the only manufacturer to support in-house production of polyurethane leak sealing grouts, structural concrete resurfacers, and 100% solids lining solutions. The product excelled in its ASTM G210 severe wastewater analysis testing (SWAT) by showcasing its fit-for-service formulation.

“Hydroplate 6500 represents a significant leap forward in corrosion control in the water and wastewater infrastructure space,” Sukola says. “Our commitment to innovation has driven us to create a product that not only meets, but far exceeds the expectations of our customers."
