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

Specifying Coatings for T&D Structures

By: Kendall Smith, Induron Sales Representative

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

By: John Anspach, Induron Technical Director

AquaCleanTo 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
