Apexior 5 PMA


Anti-corrosive Coating. Apexior 5 is a solvent based, polymer modified bitumen coating for the effective protection of steel against weather attack and corrosion.

It is a high solids black liquid of medium viscosity that can be applied by dipping, airless spraying or by hand roller or brush.

Use for the protection of mass extruded items such as fence posts, pipes and other profiles. It adheres well to new steel surfaces, provides adequate dry film thickness in a single application and lasts for years when exposed to the atmospheric or sub soil conditions.

The coating is resistant to water and dilute chemical splash.

The fast drying properties, aesthetics, and odour make this a viable alternative to cutback bitumen traditionally used for protection of steel

Apexior 5 will provide superior protection against wood rot when used to treat timber post, gum poles etc. a viable alternative to carbolineum products as there is no foul odour.
