FLEXICLAD DuraTough DL is a two component, 100% solids, fluid consistency elasto-ceramic polymer composite specifically formulated to surface and protect equipment subject to cavitation accelerated erosion/corrosion.
DuraTough combines the superior strength, durability and adhesion of an epoxy with the exceptional flexibility, abrasion resistance and shock absorbency of an elastomeric urethane.
Flexiclad DuraTough DL is ideal for coating, resurfacing & protecting equipment prone to cavitation attack as well as creating and repairing flexible seals, gaskets, seats, etc., on machinery and equipment such as heat exchangers, pumps, valves & piping systems.
Note: Other colors are available on a “special order” basis. However, there are minimum / multiple quantity requirements for such orders and there may be an increase in cost. Additionally, due to formulation restrictions, not all colors are possible for all materials. Speak to your local ENECON Sales Representative for more information.
Due to monitor / printer differences, actual colors may vary slightly from the representations appearing in this chart.
