No More Clean Water?

clean waterBy Davies Hood, Induron President

Usually, unless a water main breaks or a street caves in, most people forget about or ignore the invisible infrastructure that is slowly crumbling under our own feet. But we don’t think twice when we flush the toilet or fill a glass of water from the kitchen sink because clean, safe water has been available in the U.S. for so long.

Why We Love the ACE AWWA Convention

By Tex Enoch, Induron Sales Rep

The first of many annual ACE American Water Works Association (AWWA) Conventions occurred for me over 30 years ago. It was held in San Francisco.  Although I worked at the time for a small, very regional, paint manufacturing company, Pennsbury Coatings, it was decided that I should participate in that meeting.

This decision was made because our largest customer, The Philadelphia Suburban Water Company, was sending a large group of conventioneers, and I was tasked to make sure they remembered our special relationship. Continue reading Why We Love the ACE AWWA Convention

Help Induron Coatings Celebrate Infrastructure Week!

By Davies Hood, Induron President

The buzz might not be as loud as that surrounding the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots and their whole “Deflate-Gate” fiasco. Heck, it’s not as emotionally charged as some of the other recent headlines that involve the enactment of a city wide curfew, but our nation’s infrastructure is it something that we as a nation need to pay close attention too. Infrastructure Week is this week, and it’s the perfect time to learn more about the current state of things. Continue reading Help Induron Coatings Celebrate Infrastructure Week!

An Epoxy Coating that Works TOO Well

water treatment plantPermaSafe 100 is one of Induron’s most popular, toughest products for protecting waste water treatment plants. In fact, it has actually proved to be almost too tough for comfort!

We once worked with a contractor who applied it on a water treatment plant, and while it was approved and looked good, the owners decided that it needed to be removed because it was a different product than was originally specified. They wanted to use a different generic polyurea, rather than an epoxy, so the PermaSafe 100 had to be removed. However, neither the owners of the water treatment plant nor the painter understood just how well PermaSafe 100 bonds to concrete and steel. Continue reading An Epoxy Coating that Works TOO Well

Induron Website Gets a Facelift

new website screenshotWe know that in this day and age, a company’s website is crucial. We know that many of our customers and prospects may get their very first impression of Induron from our website.

Because of these reasons and more, we are pleased to announce that we have a new, updated, upgraded and improved website! The look is very clean, simple and easy to navigate, but we have added TONS of new features. Continue reading Induron Website Gets a Facelift

In 2014, I was contacted by an electric utility company in St. Louis, Missouri. They were having problems with their transmission poles being “tagged” (vandalized with graffiti) by local youth.

The project engineer asked if we had a product that would be easy to clean once “tagged.” We have the perfect product, Induron’s Indurethane AG (Anti-Graffiti), a two component high gloss, clear acrylic polyurethane coating enhanced with excellent anti-graffiti properties. Indurethane allows for easy removal of graffiti and extends the color and gloss retention of base coats. Continue reading Fighting Graffiti with Indurethane
