On Thursday May 2, 2013, Induron hosted our Second Annual Family Night at the Ballpark. This is a social event where all employees are invited to bring their spouses, kids and grandkids to the local ballpark. We eat hot dogs, burgers and Cracker-Jacks and really get to know co-workers in a relaxed atmosphere. Continue reading →
“’Tis the Season to be Jolly!” That’s something I try to live by, especially during the holiday season, and there are very few things that make me happier than time spent with loved ones.
Thanks to The Birmingham Ballet, I had the opportunity to spend quite a bit of time over the last two months with my two daughters doing something that THEY both truly love… dancing. As a father of daughters, opportunities to do things with my girls take a little bit of creativity. They are not interested in the same things I was a child – football, wrestling and anything cowboy don’t fit in with their love of all things pink.
However, The Nutcracker gave me an opportunity to spend some time with them… on stage performing! To get ready for the performance, I got to rehearse with them every Saturday for two months and spend several hours in the car going to and from the Ballet Studio. There were, of course, several Icee stops involved!
Pictured is my Nutcracker family. The smiles on my two daughters’ faces were as genuine as could be – and so was mine! I know that this post has little to do with industrial coatings or business in general, but Christmas is a time for us all to remember what is truly important. Family and quality time are important to me and the whole Induron Family!
Ultra-high solids (otherwise known as 100-percent solids) coatings are becoming more prevalent every day in our industry, as the restrictions on VOC’s continue to tighten across the country. At Induron, we welcome that, because we have the most user-friendly 100-percent solids products on the market for water and wastewater applications.
Many folks are still cautious about using these products, since they require plural component equipment. But we’ve found over the past few years that with a little education, practice and the correct equipment, projects requiring plural component coatings and equipment can run just as smoothly as traditional coatings. And, in fact, plural component projects have a number of cost saving advantages!
If you’d like to learn more about plural component applications, register for the upcoming free SSPC webinar sponsored by WIWA on Sept. 26. Then contact us to learn more about our 100-percent solids products.
Founded in 1947, Induron manufactures high performance coatings that serve a range of industrial applications, including the wastewater, electrical transmission and distribution, and groundwater storage industries. Induron is the maker of Protecto 401TM, the leading ceramic epoxy pipe lining for the wastewater industry. Learn more about us at www.Induron.com.

Induron Coatings would like to invite all engineers, water system owners and other interested individuals in the Mid-Atlantic region to an informative seminar hosted by Steel Tank Institute/Steel Plate Fabricators Association (STI/SPFA) at the Courtyard Marriott Pentagon in Alexandria, VA, on May 10.
During this day-long informative seminar, we’ll cover all aspects of water storage tanks, including applicable standards and all phases of design, construction and protection.
Each segment of the seminar will be presented by a recognized professional in that particular field. I am proud to be presenting a segment entitled “The Tank Coatings Process,” and will also participate in the “Total Cost of Ownership” segment as well.
I know how busy you all are, but this is a truly worthwhile event that can help you make reasonable decisions when selecting and protecting your steel water storage tanks. Plus, engineers will receive CEUs for attending. Please click here to view a brochure about the event.
