How to Turn Red into White…

By: Linc York, Induron Sales Representative

Induron blog picNo, it’s not exactly magic. Located in Venice, Illinois, Terminal Railroad Association (TRRA) has four diesel fuel tanks that are 60 feet high and 12 feet in diameter. The tanks had a red oxide coating that had chalked and rusted since being installed in 2008. The challenge was to recommend a coating system that was compatible with the existing red oxide coating since the cost, risk and mess associated with abrasive blasting would have been prohibitive.

How Nick Saban’s Comments on Complacency Apply to Induron

By: Davies Hood, Induron CEO

Values Recently, Alabama Football Coach Nick Saban told USA Today that complacency is his biggest rival. He said: “The human condition is to survive. It’s not to win the championship. It’s not to be the best you can be. It’s to survive…So when you tell me I’ve got to sell this many cars this month and that’s my quota — well, when I sell that many cars I’m ready for a couple of days off and go sit in my chair and, you know, eat Tostitos and cheese. I’m not trying to set the world record. That’s the human condition. So it’s actually special to be the other way, to be somebody that wants to win a championship, to be somebody that wants to be the best they can be.” Continue reading How Nick Saban’s Comments on Complacency Apply to Induron

Story of this Photo: Mid Delta Regional Airport Water Tank

By: Ben Rowland, Induron Sales Representative

Mid Delta Regional Airport Water TankPictured here is the elevated water tank located at the Mid Delta Regional Airport in Greenville, MS.

I recently visited Greenville, MS to give a presentation. Since I was in the area, I decided to go check out a job Induron completed 7 years ago. Just as I had hoped for and expected, the tank looked great! Seven years doesn’t sound like much, especially these days when we expect exterior finish coats to last 15-20 years, but let’s look a little harder at the photo.  Continue reading Story of this Photo: Mid Delta Regional Airport Water Tank

The Epoxies You Need for Concrete Floors

By: Linc York, Induron Sales Representative

PTSL - forlift picSelf-leveling epoxies have been used to protect and beautify concrete floors for many years. Typically, these epoxies are 100% volume solids featuring high-gloss and very low odor. In the last decade, many advances in the formula have been made and Induron’s Perma-Tuff SL embodies those advances.

Induron Perma-Tuff SL can be used as a primer and finish coat. It is readily available in nearly any color—from white to safety colors. The epoxy also contains a special “low-yellowing” curing agent that mitigates the typical yellowing associated with this class of epoxy coatings. Perma-Tuff SL has a user-friendly, 2:1 mixing ratio by volume, a 30-minute pot life and can be walked on after curing overnight. Continue reading The Epoxies You Need for Concrete Floors

Indurethane AG 2

Story of this Photo: Indurethane 6600 AG

By: Davies Hood, Induron CEO

Indurethane AG 2Not only does this photo feature wet, red paint unsuccessfully attempting to coalesce into a film, but it also illustrates the effectiveness of Induron’s Indurethane 6600 AG graffiti resistant surface!

In this close-up photo, a fresh coat of red paint was applied to a teal-colored test panel of Indurethane AG (Anti-Graffiti). As you can see, the red paint cannot form a film or any chemical bond to the teal surface. If this red paint can’t stick, how could spray-paint, lipstick or magic marker? This lack of adherence is because Indurethane AG provides an ultra-low surface tension, which prevents almost anything from effectively sticking to it!  Continue reading Story of this Photo: Indurethane 6600 AG

By: Carl Moye, Induron Sales Representative

Before joining Induron’s team as a sales representative, I spent more than 20 years in a purchasing role in the mining industry.
