Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics has introduced the Synflex34CU Chemical Dispensing hose. The hose is specifically developed for water treatment applications and conveyance of sanitizing chemicals. The hose can be used in applications up to 212°F and 4,000 PSI. A special fluoropolymer core makes the hose compatible with most chemicals, while the urethane cover is abrasion and UV resistant. Unlike rigid stainless steel tubing, the hose is flexible and absorbs vibration and impact.

Carboline’s new Carbomastic 615 HS can be applied over “sweaty” pipes, has lower temperature cure that extends the painting season, excellent wetting properties, quick recoatability, plus corrosion and chemical resistance. The coating is a new epoxy built around a technology using phenalkamine-cured epoxy resin. The product contains micaceous iron oxide (MiO). MiO is a very inert flake-type filler that imparts film strength, outstanding barrier properties, and added chemical resistance to the film.

Reed’s valve & curb keys telescope down and fit inside today’s smaller utility trucks, behind pickup seats, or in car trunks. The VKA45 is an adjustable valve key for mains with the curb key at a 45 degree angle. This angle provides a visual indication of the valve’s open or closed status. The handle will line up with the pipe with the valve in the open position.

Chemline’s Chemthane 3300 acrylic/polyurethane is a high gloss, chemical-resistant coating designed for use on industrial substrates. The high solids, low VOC, low odor coating is formulated in a 1:3 mix ratio with a pigmented acrylic enamel and a polyisocyanate hardener. The product can be applied with a brush, roller. Or, for the best results, it can be sprayed using a single component airless pump. The coating offers gloss retention technology that supersedes historical expectations of acrylic polyurethanes. Additional features include resistance to acids, alkalis, humidity and salts commonly found in industrial applications. Designed for new construction or maintenance use over prepared and primed substrates, applications include steel fabricated parts, tanks, pipelines, equipment, machinery, select marine structures, hand rails and many other industrial surfaces requiring painting.

Plastic pipe

Drinking water, drainage, fuel gas, plumbing/heating and conduit piping applications are the topics of a new set of literature published by the Plastics Pipe Institute. The Fact Sheets detail the features and benefits of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe in those various applications. The literature also lists the long-term cost effectiveness and the third-party standards that HDPE pipe has gained in the respective industries. The information is available to download at www.plasticpipe.org. Simply click on the ‘Applications’ button to find the end-use product and link to the Publications section. You may also request a printed version by calling PPI.
