Not unlike many other areas in North America and beyond, Canada has its own challenges in the protective coatings sector. Geographically, Canada has a larger land mass than the U.S., two coastlines, two major mountain chains and a diversity of weather, forestry, mining and shipbuilding in addition to wind energy, oil and gas, and hydroelectric dams. Specifically, humidity, thermal shock, corrosion, UV exposure and fluctuating temperatures cause unique coating challenges. Continue reading Protective Coatings in Canada, Eh? (Part One)

Out of sight, out of mind. This can be true for surfaces that don’t often see the light of day and things you don’t use all year round, like swimming pools. In this example, we have a badly-corroded galvanized sheet metal that was behind a pool liner. Just because this surface was out of sight, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be protected with the proper coatings.
Now that we’ve entered the fall season and will be heading into winter in a few short months, it’s a great time to take care of projects like this since you’re probably not doing much swimming at this time of year. Continue reading Protect Surfaces that are Out of Sight, Out of Mind
