Electrocoat epoxy coatings are widely used for corrosion protection of evaporator and condenser coils, and other heat exchangers. Axalta’s new tin-free epoxy coating technology is now certified by National Sanitation Foundation per NSF-51 Standard Food Equipment Materials. This development is meaningful for suppliers of commercial refrigeration, restaurant and hotel HVAC equipment and indoor evaporators who are concerned with indoor air quality in homes.
“We are excited to discuss the recent NSF-51 certification of Axalta’s AquaEC 6100, which complements our existing compliance with NSF-61 for a variety of Axalta e-coat and powder coatings,” said Michael Stuhldreher, Axalta Market Development Manager. “Together with our partner, MPI, we’ll have the chance to directly engage manufacturers and end-users of food equipment-related HVAC products, for whom this compliance presents immediate opportunities including value-added corrosion protection and other product improvements.”
In MPI booth #C6300 at the AHR Expo on January 30-February 2 , Axalta will promote its high-performance, corrosion-resistant range of products that are ideal for the HVAC industry, such as AquaEC electrodeposition coatings, Alesta® powder coatings and Voltatex® electrical insulation finishes.
