Sikacore 6630 does not have an Item number but is still used for Highways applications, all of these paint coatings are available from Promain.

There is a standard film thickness for each coat providing a total film thickness that will offer a life expectancy in excess of 10 years to first maintenance. For a longer lasting system there is a shop applied system based on an epoxy build coat followed by an Engineered Siloxane such as PPG PSX 700 offering a life expectancy of 25 years, this is the Highways Agency Item No.185.
