Self-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
Recently, Induron was featured in CoatingsPro magazine’s May 2016 issue. The article, “Water Tank Déjà vu: 20 Years Later” discussed a recoating job on a water tank located in Papillion, NE. Family-owned and -operated coatings contractor, J.R. Stelzer, was tasked with removing the Papillion water tank’s existing coating and applying a new coating system. Fortunately, J.R. Stelzer turned to Induron to supply the coatings solution. Continue reading Have you Seen us in CoatingsPro Magazine Lately?

Not 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!

Before joining Induron’s team as a sales representative, I spent more than 20 years in a purchasing role in the mining industry. From the other side of the desk, I learned a few key principles that I believe we, as protective coatings salespeople, should all keep in mind. Continue reading From the Other Side of the Desk

When deciding how to specify coatings on T&D structures (lattice towers, poles, pylons, etc.), it’s important to realize that there are sometimes different “zones” on these structures. For instance, if a galvanized steel transmission pole is partly buried in soil, the below-grade portion is exposed to a different corrosion environment than the above-grade section. Likewise, the “transition zone” just above and below the ground line can present corrosion protection challenges.
So, before you buy it, coat it and bury it, consider the following corrosion variables. Continue reading Specifying Coatings for T&D Structures

To ensure AquaClean’s performance matches its user-friendly and good-looking finish, many important design traits are formulated into the coating system.
First, AquaClean is formulated to be compliant to the OTC (Ozone Transport Commission) standard for low VOC content. Complying with OTC allows us to sell AquaClean in most U.S. markets. Continue reading AquaClean: The Chemistry Behind the Product
