For use in potable water?
Q: “Epoxy.com Product #210 Coal Tar
Epoxy says on its technical data sheet that it meets the
performance criteria for the American Water Works Association Specification C-210. Does that mean I can coat the inside of my steel potable water tank with it?”
Norm Lambert: No. To use on the inside
of your tank you will need NSF or UL approval for direct contact with
drinking water. American Water Works Association Specification C-210
deals with the standard for coating the outside of a tank with an Epoxy.
Which Coal Tar Epoxy is Best?
I notice that Epoxy.com has two different Coal tar Epoxies:
Epoxy.com Product #210 andEpoxy.com Product #216. Which one is the best?
Norm Lambert: The reason we make the two versions is so that you have a choice for which one is Right Product for Your Job. Both products will hold up for long periods of time, when other products will not.
Epoxy.com Product #216 Coal Tar Epoxy Coating meets all requirements of Corp. of Engineers C-200, Federal Specification DOD-P-23236 (SHIPS), and SSPC 16-91.
Epoxy.com Product #210 Coal Tar Epoxy Coating meets American Water Works Association Specification C-210. So if you are working a job with one of these specifications, that will determine which Epoxy.com Coal Tar Epoxy is right for your job.
Epoxy.com Product #216 Coal Tar Epoxy Coating is 86% Solids, so there is some solvent odor when working with it. However, the solvent gives you a longer working time. Epoxy.com Product #210 Coal Tar Epoxy is 100% solids, so it is Zero (0) VOC – no solvents. So Epoxy.com Product #210 meets even the strictest VOC requirements. That means that you have no odor, but you will have a shorter “pot life”.
