Location: Alma, WI
Painting Contractor: Rogers Paint Company
Products Used: Primer – E-Bond 100% Solids Sealer
Finish – Perma-Clean II High Gloss Epoxy
The maintenance engineer for the JP Madgett Power Plant asked Mike Rogers of Rogers Paint to repaint the turbine room floor following the installation of a new scrubber at the power plant. The floor was damaged during construction and it needed to be repaired. The plant wanted to stay with a thin film paint system because they are easy to repair if damaged. Following surface preparation, the floor was sealed with Induron’s E-Bond 100% Solids Epoxy and the finish coat was Induron’s Perma-Clean II High Gloss Epoxy Sky Gray.

Project: Beebe New Water Tank
Location: Beebe, Arkansas
Painting Contractor: Haney Sandblasting & Painting
Fabricator: Caldwell Tank
Products Used: Primer – PE 70, Intermediate – Indurethane 6700 Flat, Finish — Indurathane 5000 clear coat
The city of Beebe, Arkansas selected Caldwell Tanks, Inc. to build a new water tower with a “deep base color,” which was a challenge because deeper colors have the tendency to fade due to high UV light exposure. The solution was Induron’s Indurathane 5000 clear coat urethane. Haney Sandblasting & Painting chose Indurethane 5000 Clear because it is an excellent gloss enhancer, protector and color stabilizer that also provides graffiti resistance. Indurethane 5000 Clear provides extended enhanced color stability and gloss retention beyond the normal life of conventional polyurethane finishes, even fluorourethane’s and works well to extend the beauty and brightness of a dark color.
Originally opened for business in 1882, Sloss Furnaces produced iron for nearly 90 years. Now recognized as a National Historic Landmark, its web of pipes—and its tall smokestack—stand today as the ultimate symbol of Birmingham’s industrial past.
Induron was selected to participate in the highly-publicized blast repaint of Sloss Furnaces. According to Patton Bradford, who headed the local operation of Atlanta-based Daca (the project’s General Contractor), “There were two critical goals for the repaint: Protect the structure from corrosion, and restore it to its original ‘Primer Red’ appearance. In other words, we almost wanted it to look like it hadn’t been painted at all.”
Among the special challenges Daca had to deal with were lead containment issues—which they handled with draping and negative air. Given the project’s critical goals and challenges, Induron recommended a mastic epoxy, plus two coats of Aquanaut Acrylic—an environmentally-friendly dryfall paint that’s especially effective on jobs with a prevalence of angles and edges.
“Induron gave us good field support,” Bradford continues, “including site inspections and quality control. And with their plant being located near the project, they were certainly on top of all materials ordering and delivery coordination.” Any number of certifications were required for this project—which was completed in 2002. And if we do say so ourselves, the paint has held-up beautifully!

When this two million gallon, ¾ below grade tank was emptied, it was discovered that numerous structural repairs were necessary. This resulted in excavation around the below grade portion of the tank’s exterior to access those areas in need of repair. While this excavation was in process, it was decided to also completely strip the exterior and repaint it. The product that was chosen for this application was Induron’s Permaclean 100, a 100% solids ceramic filled epoxy. It was chosen because it could be applied at a high build in a single coat (< 25 mils). It could also be applied in cold weather (temps down to 30’F), and it would allow the above grade portions of the shell to be top-coated with the same intermediate and finish coats as were to be applied on the roof. Also, the ceramic beads would provide the abrasion resistance necessary for the backfilling operation as well as prevention of the previous corrosion problems. Finally, this is the product that Aqua Pennsylvania uses for protecting the interior of their tanks. It carries NSF certification in applications up to 50 mils and it was to be used as the finish coat on the interior of this tank as well.
This emergency repair and repainting operation took place over the snowiest winter Valley Forge has seen in 50 years. The project was completed by the June 1st deadline and the tank was successfully placed in service with no water quality issues whatsoever.

Just because a job doesn’t involve a large quantity of material doesn’t mean it isn’t as important as one that does. Hartman Walsh Industrial Services called to order several gallons of Induron’s Perma-Tuff SL for the Anheuser-Busch Clydesdale stables. The project involved recoating the tack room floor. The historic Clydesdales date back to 1933 and their stables in St. Louis are on the historic register. The iconic Anheuser-Busch green and red colors had to matched exactly. Induron’s customer service custom matched the colors and had the 100% solids self-leveling epoxy at the job site in less than a week. Perma-Tuff SL is virtually odorless, user friendly and dries to a high gloss, extremely durable floor finish. It can withstand harsh chemicals, impact and abrasion.
