When I was at the Armor School in 1990 at Fort Knox, I lived across the street from the Patton Museum. I enjoyed visiting because it helped me add to my knowledge on the history of armor and cavalry warfare. Continue reading Restoring Armored Vehicles with Quality Coatings

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!
PermaSafe 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
We 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. And we know that if this first impression isn’t a good one, people are likely to move on without looking around, learning more about us or trying to find out how to get in touch with us.
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

Through a pre-planning meeting, Induron provides a presentation demonstrating their proven methods used to evaluate the environment based on global and locally accepted standards and specifications ideally suited to the needs of T&D corrosion prevention.

Many people seem to confuse “quality control” with what is actually “consistency control”. We at Induron work really hard at measuring both consistency and quality to assure that our customers get consistent products that provide the application properties they need and the reliable protection for which they are paying. Continue reading Why Quality Control Also Means Consistency at Induron
We’re still talking about our recent company sales reward trip to Puerto Rico, so here are a few more thoughts from those who attended about what the trip meant to them. See more responses in this blog post.
“I think it reinforced that a small company, committed to doing things the “right” way, can still be successful, profitable and afford its employees such experiences. My little knowledge, or awareness, of such company sponsored trips have always seemed to be reserved for the mega corporations of the world. Continue reading Induron Sales Reward Trip, Part II
For all those who were able to attend our fantastic team-building sales reward trip to Puerto Rico, we agree that it was a great experience. But it’s interesting that each of us took something unique from that experience.
Here are some thoughts from a few attendees about what the trip meant to them:
“All sales professionals experience emotional lows and highs, usually daily. When sales goals are not only met but rewarded that goes above being compensated. That’s special. When our team, and our wives, gathered at Gran Melia in Puerto Rico we not only shared ideas and stories, we flew through the jungle on zip lines and swam trough the ocean admiring the beauty of God’s creations. An additional reward was the sun and warmth of the Caribbean when it was below freezing at home. Sweet!” – Linc York, Sales & Service, MO & IL
I have been a full-time participant in the protective coatings industry since 1969. Your perspective on how long that is depends on when you started in the industry, but my guess is that most would agree that I have been involved a long time. I have participated in a lot of change in the business and observed even more. Continue reading Peeling Back the Layers of the Evolving Coatings Industry
