EPOX Z KOTE

Powder Primed Tubing

EPOX Z KOTE is an epoxy powder primer (0.5 mil film thickness on average) that reduces the variable costs associated with the surface preparation of steel tubing prior to its priming and painting.


BENEFITS


  • EPOX Z KOTE tubing reduces the cleaning and paint preparation stages of manufacturing.
  • Welding through EPOX Z KOTE doesn’t require specialized equipment, procedures or breathing apparatus.
  • EPOX Z KOTE is laser friendly and can be processed in a single pass.
  • EPOX Z KOTE produces a tough barrier that prevents weld spatter from sticking.
  • EPOX Z KOTE is compatible with water-based, solvent-based, two component urethanes and powder coat paints.
  • EPOX Z KOTE is available in black, red, gray, and clear coat – custom colors can be formulated to requirements.
