Long-Lasting, Easy to Apply Room Temperature Cure Coating That Increases Equipment Life

DANVERS, Mass., Sept. 22, 2021 /CNW/ -- ITW Performance Polymers has launched its next generation wear resistance compound, Devcon Wear Guard 300RTC designed to protect equipment in elevated temperature wet and dry environments. This superior room temperature cure coating is highly resistant to chemical attacks in high solid, wet environments up to 300⁰F / 149⁰C seen in cement plants, power plants, petrochemical plants, mining and pulp and paper mills.

"Our end-users continue to require products that last longer, apply easier, and withstand harsh conditions. Our team has developed this next generation erosion-resistant, corrosion-resistant compound to meet these challenging applications," said Guil Silva, VP/GM, ITW Performance Polymers. This unique formulation enables customers to achieve superior equipment protection without the difficulties of expensive post baking seen with other brands. This allows customers to easily apply the product and quickly resume operations, resulting in increased equipment uptime.

Devcon Wear Guard 300RTC has gone through extensive testing and evaluation to ensure an exceptional customer experience affording impressive resistance to wear in dry and wet corrosive conditions up to 300⁰F / 149⁰C. Field trials have proven high product durability allowing customers to run their equipment longer before reapplying products or applying thinner coats resulting in higher product throughput. This flexibility allows customers to minimize equipment failures reducing maintenance costs.

As a room temperature cure product, Devcon Wear Guard 300RTC allows the product to be applied onsite reducing costly transportation and remote Post Cure expenses required with other systems. Eliminating the need of an oven baked post cure saves time, money and energy, while increasing equipment uptime.

"The unique properties of Devcon Wear Guard 300RTC give customers a durable, protective wear-resistant compound, that will outlast the competition and keep their equipment running even in harsh conditions," added Guil Silva.

Devcon Wear Guard 300RTC wearing compound can be used in a number of applications including flotation tanks, scrubbers, ash handling systems, pipe elbows, screens, chutes, bins, hoppers, exhausters, housing fans, launderers, crushers and breakers.
