Nippon 8048 is a two-pack epoxy polyamide coating, specifically designed for use on steel surfaces that cannot be abrasive blast cleaned. It provides a high build impervious barrier coating that gives excellent adhesion and surface wetting properties on manually prepared, rusty steelwork. Its unique combination of anti-corrosion pigments and rust penetrants provides excellent corrosion resistance in virtually any environment.

Nippon 8048 can be used either as a high build primer or a self-priming high build finish under non-immersion service.
