Product Description

Barrikade EP-500 Tank is a solvent-free, two-component pigmented epoxy resin which provides an impervious, hard and repellent glossy finish with good chemical resistance and wearing properties.


Areas of use

Barrikade EP-500 Tank is intended for use as a coating on tanks, reservoirs, gutters, basins, sewage treatment plants, and floors made of concrete and steel



The surface should be free of laitance, oil, grease and loose or friable particles which may affect adhesion. Blast cleaning is recommended. The surface should be vacuumed. The surface of steel and other metals, must be free from rust and corrosion. Steel blast cleaned to Sa 2.5 (ISO 8501-1) will give the best adhesion.
