Epoxy paint is recognized by the EPA as nontoxic (after curing), is extremely durable and has excellent adhesion to a wide variety of materials. Whether coating fiberglass, wood, steel, concrete or even galvanized surfaces, you won’t find a better paint for aquaculture.
Simply clean and dry the surface (acid-etch concrete and steel, then use nonsudsing ammonia to neutralize acid residue and use PT20 concrete primer; prime steel and galvanized surfaces). Then mix epoxy paint parts A and B, wait 30–60 minutes and spray, brush or roll on. Recoat after about four hours, if desired. The curing temperature range is 55–125°F. Before adding live organisms, let cure for 7 days. Excellent for drinking water, ozone contact, fresh and saltwater aquaculture, etc.
