By: Andy Odorzynski, Induron Sales Representative

This article was originally published in the September 2017 issue of the Journal of Protective Coatings & Linings.

As a technical sales representative for a paint manufacturing firm, I have the opportunity to work with specifying engineers and facility owners of projects spanning many different industries. Few industries present the same level of challenges in coatings specification development that one encounters in the wastewater marketplace. Outside of a few firms with industry expertise, specifying engineers tend to rely entirely on paint manufacturers to select coatings for their wastewater specifications. This has created an environment where specifications vary wildly. This article will discuss how we as coatings professionals can better support the specifying engineers with whom we work to bring about some consistency and guidance to the development of wastewater specifications.

A history of the first 70 years (1947-2017) of:

The Industrial Paint Manufacturing Company (July 1, 1947-June 20, 1966)

Palmyra Tank Refurbishments

By: Paul Powers, Induron Sales Representative

The city of Palmyra, Missouri, which is located two hours north of St. Louis, was platted in 1819 and is home to nearly 4,000 residences. With many buildings and homes listed in the historical  registry, Palmyra is rich with Civil War and Pony Express history. In fact, in 1827, the town became the Marion County Seat, which established it as the oldest postal stop in Missouri that is still in operation today. Induron is fortunate to have worked with the city to refurbish three water tanks. Continue reading Palmyra Tank Refurbishments
