Induron Before and After: Restoring Corroded Materials

Just because a surface is out of sight, doesn’t mean it should be out of mind when it comes to coating and protecting it. In this case, we have badly-corroded galvanized sheet metal that was behind a pool liner.

Rather spending vast amounts of time and money cleaning up this surface with abrasive blast cleaning, the owners were able to do a simple wire brushing and scraping before applying Induron MCU62. This moisture-cured urethane coating is a great alternative to more expensive cleanings, and was followed up by a moisture-cured coal-tar finish – Induratar from Induron.

With just those two quick-drying, easy-to-apply coats of paint, the owners have a long-term restoration of sheet metal that was on its way to failure in a year or two. Now, this material is set for another ten to 15 years of near-constant immersion.
