Protect Surfaces that are Out of Sight, Out of Mind

Before

Out of sight, out of mind. This can be true for surfaces that don’t often see the light of day and things you don’t use all year round, like swimming pools. In this example, we have a badly-corroded galvanized sheet metal that was behind a pool liner. Just because this surface was out of sight, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be protected with the proper coatings.

Now that we’ve entered the fall season and will be heading into winter in a few short months, it’s a great time to take care of projects like this since you’re probably not doing much swimming at this time of year. Continue reading Protect Surfaces that are Out of Sight, Out of Mind

Our Neon Deon Sanders Product: Indurabrite Aluminum

By Carl Moye, Induron Sales and Service

Induron’s Indurabrite Aluminum reminds me of “Neon” Deon Sanders from when he was a sports star for the Atlanta Falcons and the Braves. How could you forget the NFL’s “fastest and most noticeable” player of his era? Deon Sanders was a lock-down corner and punt-returner extraordinaire who beat his competition with speed. He then told them about it with his brash, loud antics.

It also has plenty of “BLING” like Deon Sanders since it shines so bright you need sunglasses to even look at a painted surface on a sunny day.

Ignoring Infrastructure: The Future is Here

In a world that is controlled by budgets, needs often have to be prioritized and sometimes forgotten. Long-term corrosion needs of our nation’s infrastructure, such as water tanks, bridges, electrical transmission towers, power poles, waste water treatment plants and more are being ignored far too often. In this four-part series, we talk about why we think failing infrastructure should be at the top of the list and explore what we can do about it.

By Linc York

I recently read an article that stated that the federal government estimates it will cost more than $600 billion over the next 20 years to repair the water and sewer systems in the United States. My first thought was the enormity of the expected costs. Naturally, my second thought is that government estimates are predictably wrong and most often they are vastly underestimated. So what are we to do? Can these monies be spent wisely? Continue reading Ignoring Infrastructure: The Future is Here
