Water and wastewater treatment creates a range of corrosive environments that can quickly disintegrate concrete and steel substrates. Strong coating options are needed to ensure that important infrastructure stands the test of time. Fortunately, PPG Protective & Marine Coatings recently announced an expansion of its coatings offerings specifically geared toward water and wastewater treatment facilities, including collections systems, primary and secondary treatment, biosolids handling and disinfection.

“PPG is excited to offer a much broader range of coatings solutions for our infrastructure customers thanks to RAVEN Lining Systems’ technologies and extensive experience in that industry,” says Juanjo Ardid, PPG vice president, protective and marine coatings, U.S. and Canada. 

Customers can choose from a comprehensive range of coatings that provide corrosion and chemical resistance based on the environment, the substrate being protected (concrete or steel) and specific performance requirements. Due to PPG’s recent acquisition of RAVEN Lining Systems, the expanded portfolio is able to combine PPG RAVEN and PPG AQUATAFLEX coating systems for aggressive underwater concrete applications with a variety of their own coating solutions for exterior and interior steel tanks, basins and facility infrastructure.

“Plant operators, engineers and contractors can benefit from having a single coatings resource with proven products backed by the extensive technical support, applications expertise, specification tools and distribution network of PPG,” says Ardid.

While all PPG coatings are designed to resist aggressive corrosion and provide long-lasting performance, each is optimized for specific end-use requirements. These include PPG RAVEN 405 high-build epoxy that provides protection and broad chemical resistance, especially to hydrogen sulfide, for concrete immersion applications like wet wells, digesters and manholes; PPG AQUATAFLEX tri-hybrid series that combines the chemical resistance of an epoxy, flexibility of a polyurethane and fast cure of a polyurea for concrete substrates that are subject to structural movement or that require quick return to service such as filter basins, clarifiers and tanks; PPG RAVEN 755 cementitious resurfacer that rehabilitates deteriorated concrete as a first coat in a system with PPG RAVEN 405 or PPG AQUATAFLEX series coatings for manholes, wet wells, filter basins and headworks; PPG SIGMASHIELD that provides high abrasion and impact resistance for steel-immersion applications due to its ultra-high film build with broad application thicknesses; PPG NOVAGUARD 890 novolac epoxy lining that offers resistance to a wide range of chemicals and solvents, including H2S, for direct-to-metal applications; and PPG AMERCOAT interior and PPG AMERLOCK exterior epoxy coatings that provide versatile, surface-tolerant coatings for atmospheric steel applications in tanks and basins. 888-977-4762;
