Sherwin-Williams Introduces Dura-Plate 6100
Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings introduced Dura-Plate 6100, a 100 percent solids high-build, high physical performance, amine-cured epoxy designed for corrosion protection of concrete and steel in municipal and industrial wastewater treatment facilities. The product helps extend the design life of a coated structure.

The product offers quick dry-to-touch times that reduce the potential for outgassing on buried concrete structures. The rapid return-to-service time of 12 hours prevents downtime and increases productivity. Dura-Plate 6100 is an ultra-low VOC, spray-applied, resinous coating capable of film builds of 125+ mils in a single coat. It also reduces the potential for pinhole formation due to the rapid dry-to-touch times.

Dura-Plate 6100 provides a high-strength lining for severe wastewater and sewer collection structures and is designed for manholes, basins, wet wells, clarifiers, lift stations, influent channels, trenches, pipes, sumps and digesters.
