Albi Intumescent Coatings at a Glance
PSX 700 is a weatherable epoxy-siloxane coating that is self-priming or can be used with a suitable epoxy primer. PSX 700 offers a combination of outstanding corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance, stain resistance and long-term gloss retention. Whether applied to structural steel, concrete floors or non-ferrous substrates, PSX 700 delivers longterm performance.
Why PSX provides you longer lifecycle service and cuts your coating costs…
PSX 700 is available in a broad ranging palette of colors from whites to pastels to deep colors of bright reds, yellows, oranges and deep blues and greens. In the PSX product line deep colors are referred to as “Group 3” colors due to their strength and resistance to ultra-violet damage. Safety colors such as “Safety Yellow” and “Safety Red” are Deep Colors.
We recommend you consider purchasing Amercoat 911 thinner or PPG 97-739 exempt VOC thinner which are blended to improve the application of PSX 700 in varying environmental conditions. Most applicators use Amercoat 911 for applications outside of California and PPG 97-739 for application in VOC regulated California so they can thin the PSX 700 up to 10%.
