Watson Coatings manufactures water reducible alkyd coating for industrial gas cylinders – a true innovation in gas cylinder coating. The Aqua-Shield WSR Series gas cylinder coatings are water reducible alkyd coatings for use on the exterior of high-pressure industrial gas cylinders. W.S.R. stands for water reducible, spray, or roll. This line of gas cylinder coatings boasts a viscosity that is high enough to be brushed or rolled on with pipe rollers, yet is low enough to be sprayed straight from the bucket with minimal thinning. Being water based, these gas cylinder coatings can be thinned with water and cleaned up with water, as long as the material is wet. Once the coating has dried, it can be removed with a mild solvent.For large spray applications, a newer version of the Aqua-Shield WSR gas cylinder coatings, use the Aqua-Shield WAS series of gas cylinder coatings. The Aqua-Shield WAS series is a spray-ready gas cylinder coating that can be used directly from the bucket or drum without additional thinning.
