HiChem™, the most chemical-resistant Rhino Linings formulation, remains stable in a variety of immersion applications. It is typically sprayed onto metal and concrete surfaces, but it can adhere to almost any substrate. HiChem provides excellent corrosion resistance and will not deteriorate from most chemical attacks.
HiChem has a Shore D 70 hardness, and it is our most rigid formulation with the highest amount of molecular cross-linking in its formulation. Depending on the ratio formulation and gel time, elongation can range from 10% to 40%, giving this hard coating some flexibility. HiChem is available in both 2:1 and 1:1 ratio formulations. HiChem 21-70-90 is formulated with a slow gel time allowing for a smooth surface spray or casting of products.
HiChem PW meets the NSF/ANSI 61 potable water standard. HiChem PW shares the HiChem formulation as the most chemical resistant product, remaining stable in a variety of immersion applications. It is typically sprayed on metal and concrete surfaces, but it can adhere to almost any substrate. HiChem PW provides excellent corrosion resistance and will not deteriorate from most chemical attacks.
