Seeking Standardization in Coating Specifications for Wastewater Projects

By: Andy Odorzynski, Induron Sales Representative

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

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.

Induron’s Ceramic Epoxies Withstand the Test of Time

By: Linc York, Induron Sales Representative

We’ve all heard that doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity. For decades, the popular way to protect structures immersed in or subject to aggressive environments has been to apply three coats of a “high build” epoxy at approximately 15 mils. This approach works adequately, but could there be a better, less-costly way to achieve superior results? What if you could provide enhanced corrosion resistance for less cost while saving time and applying fewer coats to achieve a higher dry film thickness? Continue reading Induron’s Ceramic Epoxies Withstand the Test of Time
