Product Information
Amerex high performance fire extinguishers are built to protect life and property against extreme fire hazards in corrosive environments. This line of extinguishers is designed and tested to serve industrial markets, such as oil & gas, mining, and waste, which often endure hazardous materials that can eat paint away. Behind the Amerex Diamond is a proprietary corrosion-resistant paint with a zinc-infused primer coat. This environmentally friendly and innovative paint process provides an effective solution for rugged markets that demand advanced corrosion protection. Paint can also be chipped over time from handling heavy debris, exposing the primer coat. This paint further protects the integrity of the extinguisher cylinders, enabling them to last longer. By integrating this more corrosion-resistant primer, end users will benefit from a better, longer-lasting product.
