The solvent-free solution for petrochemical storage

The unique PPG NOVAGUARD 840 tank lining combines the superior chemical resistance of novolac epoxy chemistry with the health and safety advantages provided by solvent-free products.

Its wide chemical resistance permits the storage of crude oil up to a maximum temperature of 120°C (250°F), petrochemicals, solvents and refined fuels. A detailed chemical resistance list can be found in the TankSelect tool (http://tankselect.sigmacoatings.com).

Typical resistance chart of NOVAGUARD 840Exceptional application properties – improved productivity

The PPG NOVAGUARD 840 coating can be applied as a one- or two-coat system with a total dry-film thickness as low as 300 microns (12 mils) per coat. Application is direct to steel or over an approved primer and generally by heavy- duty, single-feed airless equipment (60:1), although roller application can be used for stripe coating.

The coating is versatile and, as well as being suitable for new construction, it may be reinforced with chopped glass fiber or glass mat, to repair pitted tank bottoms during major refurbishment of aged tanks.

The smooth, glossy finish and light color reduces cleaning time and greatly assists inspection.

Environmentally friendly – improved health and safety

The demand for safer products is a key issue in the tank coating and pipe lining industry.

Being solvent-free, the PPG NOVAGUARD 840 coating greatly improves working conditions, air quality and reduces the risk of explosion and fire. Applicators also benefit from a healthier, safer and a more environmentally friendly workplace.
