Foster® 40-60™ Drip Pan Coating
Foster ® 40-60 Drip Pan Coating is a water-based, fire resistive, flexible, and tough coating for the protection of metal drip pans used in HVAC systems. It bonds to the surface of clean, bare metal without the use of primers, maintaining long-term protection of drip pans against corrosion, and reducing periodic maintenance.
Foster 40-60 Drip Pan Coating has excellent long-term resistance against the detrimental effects of harmful fungus, algae, and bacteria, and will not support their growth on the coating's surface. It will also provide vibration dampening.
Foster 40-60 Drip Pan Coating has the water resistance and low water vapor permeance normally found only in solvent-based coatings. It can be used in high humidity or wet environments. It will greatly retard moisture vapor penetration and inhibit corrosion of metal surfaces.
Foster 40-60 Drip Pan Coating may be placed in service after a minimum of 96 hours dry time. It dries forming a strong bond to galvanized steel, aluminum, or mild steel surfaces.
Foster 40-60 Drip Pan Coating meets requirements for LEED ® EQ Credit 4.2, low-emitting materials: paints and coatings.
Foster 40-60 Drip Pan Coating contains no asbestos, lead, mercury or mercury compounds.
Store and apply between 40ºF (4ºC) and 100ºF (38ºC). Protect from freezing until dry. Water-based products may corrode carbon steel equipment. Corrosion resistant pumps and fittings are suggested. See other side for the complete directions and limitations.
DO NOT DILUTE.
