Category E/C5

Category E/C5 (Pre- Finished Cladding- Water Borne)

Category E: Very high. (E-I: Industrial E-M: Marine) This category is common offshore and on the beachfront in regions of rough seas and surf beaches. The region can extend inland for several hundred metres. (In some areas of Newcastle, for example, it extends more than half a kilometre from the coast). This category may also be found in aggressive industrial areas, where the environment may be acidic. For this reason, Category E is divided into Marine and Industrial for purposes of coating selection. Some of the damp and/or contaminated interior environments in Category D may occasionally extend into this category.
