Thin-Film Linings and Coatings

Thin-film linings and coatings, by definition, are films that are less than 20 mils (0.020″) in thickness. These are generally spray-applied systems and can be used as lining systems when properly applied and holiday-tested – these can also be applied as an external coating system for protection of equipment in fume, splash, and spill exposure.

Thin-film systems used as linings require a higher standard of surface preparation than those used as external coating systems. Equipment design and fabrication quality are key in achieving a continuous lining system free of voids or defects that can adversely affect long-term performance. These lining systems are generally designed for immersion in mildly-corrosive chemical solutions, or in situations where product purity or product release is a critical factor.

Typical thin-film lining systems include:

  • Baked phenolics
  • Epoxies
  • Epoxy-phenolics
  • Epoxy-novolacs

Typical thin-film coating systems include:

  • Inorganic and organic zinc primers
  • Epoxies
  • Polyurethanes
  • High-heat silicones
  • Acrylics
