Kennedy Powder Coating material is a stable, non-toxic resin consisting of 100% solids. It is impervious to and imparts no taste to potable water. Kennedy Powder Coating is formulated from materials deemed acceptable in the Food and Drug Administration Document Title 21 of the Federal Regulations on food additives, Section 175.300 entitled "Resinous and Polymeric Coatings".
Kennedy Powder Coating is applied by a heat application, fusion-bonding process which secures the coating material to the metal valve components. This process provides a coating averaging 9 mills thick with excellent adhesion qualities.
The durable Kennedy Powder Coating has a hard finish and exhibits excellent corrosion resistance in most aqueous solutions. It will not sag or cold flow or become soft during long-term storage. In addition to excellent corrosion resistance to aqueous solutions, the coating has excellent stability and resistance to acidic soil conditions.
Kennedy Powder Coating meets both the application and performance requirements
of the American Water Works Association standard C-550 entitled "Protective
Interior Coatings for Valves and Hydrants
