Background

PondPro is a liquid version of EPDM and very similar to EPDM pond liners sold in pond supply stores. It works extremely well on all non-porous concrete fountains as well as EPDM fishponds liners. Reflecting pools are another good application site for EPDM. These are demanding areas where the unique properties of EPDM have a distinct advantage over other products. The success of PondPro 2000 is achieved by combining ethylene and propylene with a diene monomer. PondPro 2000 is safe for fish and plant life as well as chlorinated water. This polymer (when cross-linked) is an excellent moisture barrier and resistant to oxidation and UV degradation. However, its most important property is its ability to tolerate both low as well as high temperatures from -62° to over 350° F. General EPDM rubber is used exclusively for radiator hoses, freezer gaskets, low temperature seals, steam hoses, and rubber roofing membranes. It is also blended with other rubbers to improve their properties. A multitude of products are now better and last longer because of the contribution made by EPDM rubber.

How does PondPro 2000 compare to other products?

Water resistance PondPro 2000 is superior to epoxies, urethanes, acrylics, polyesters and alkyds at equal film thicknesses and is not affected by continuous immersion.
UV resistance PondPro 2000 is equal or better than acrylics, polyesters or urethanes and much better than alkyds and epoxies.
Temperature tolerance PondPro 2000 is better than all other coating polymers except silicones. EPDM can withstand live steam as well as cryogenic temperatures.
Flexibility PondPro 2000 is better than all other coating polymers except silicones. EPDM can withstand live steam as well as cryogenic temperatures.
Chemical Resistance PondPro 2000 has very good resistance to strong alkali's, concentrated salt solutions, many acids, and alcohols.
Sulfuric acid Applicable up to 50% concentration up to 158º F
Nitric Acid Applicable up to 50% concentration up to 70º F
Sodium dichromate 11% Applicable up to 70º F
Phosphoric acid 50% Applicable up to 140º F
Trichloroethylene 98% Applicable up to 70º F
Sodium hydroxide 50% Applicable up to 176º F
Potassium Hydroxide 10% Applicable up to 200º F
Potassium cyanide 25% Applicable up to 140º F
Silver cyanide 25% Applicable up to 140º F
Nickel Chloride 50% Applicable up to 176º F
Surface tolerance PondPro 2000 will not bond to a surface that is damp with moisture. PondPro2000 also can be applied directly to metal surfaces that have tightly adhering corrosion without a primer.

Where can PondPro 2000 be used to its best advantage?

The unique combination of properties which PondPro 2000 possesses can be best utilized when they are applied to the exterior surfaces of stationary structures. Examples are:

Ponds and fountains Concrete fishponds, fountains and reflecting pools are another good application for EPDM. These are demanding applications where the unique properties of EPDM have a distinct advantage over other products.
Air conditioning drip pans Excellent moisture barrier and rust inhibitor.
Concrete tanks The excellent waterproofing properties of EPDM will reduce or prevent spalling of concrete in cold climates.
Corrosive/humid Exposed structural steel on the interior of industrial buildings with humid or corrosive environments can be coated with minimal surface preparation. Plating operations, smelters, concrete casting
Environments operations, dye works and paper mills are just a few examples. High-density poultry and hog production operations are another good use to protect steel from the corrosive environment produced by manure.
Impoundments Liquid EPDM coatings are a good choice for exterior spill containment structures because of their excellent weathering and broad chemical resistance properties
