With features for microbial resistance, increased film build, reduced permeability, and better adhesion than cohesion, ceramic epoxies are nothing short of phenomenal. While Induron now manufactures ceramic epoxies that are ideal for several end-uses applications, such as barrier coatings for water tanks, wastewater facilities and water treatment plants, ceramic epoxies were originally developed as a solution for lining ductile iron sanitary sewer pipe.

We are thrilled to welcome Steve Freed to the Induron team as our Northeast Regional Sales Manager. While we are sad to see our longstanding Water Tank Manager and industry veteran, Tex Enoch, move toward retirement, we could not be more fortunate to have Steve Freed stepping into his role and territory. For the last few months, Steve has worked alongside Tex to establish a seamless transition.
“Steve was already well-known within the ductile iron portion of Induron’s business,” Tex said. “Before he was hired, he went with me to visit some contractors in the Lancaster, PA area as well as a job site where a 3-million gallon composite tank was being built and painted by Chicago Bridge and Iron Company–two perfect examples of what I have been doing for Induron for the last 13 years. Steve easily translated his knowledge of below-ground coatings to above-ground work in which I specialized. His technical expertise is outstanding, and his basic coating knowledge has only to be refined. I can’t imagine Induron finding a more qualified and capable replacement for me as I walk off into the sunset.”
