I’m NOT Lovin’ It

By Jeff White, Induron Sales Manager

McDonalds GraffitiCan you believe that vandals would dare to deface a mural of Ronald McDonald, The Hamburglar and friends? Well in Huntingdon Beach, Calif., it happened. A graffiti “artist” (aka, vandal), who apparently doesn’t like Big Macs or Chicken McNuggets, decided to spray over the iconic Golden Arches Mural with the word “VEGAN.”

My thoughts? Even if you don’t like the burgers, you could still eat the fries and salads. Personally, I love a good Quarter Pounder with Cheese.

If only those folks in Huntingdon Beach had protected the mural with Induron’s Indurethane AG (that’s anti-graffiti), the cleanup would have been as easy as wiping the paint off with a wet cloth. Read more on this story at Durability + Design here.

If you have special icons in your community that you want to protect from vandals with a spray can, check out Indurethane AG or talk to an Induron sales rep today. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of elbow grease when it comes to removing spray paint!

Occupy a Charity

By Davies Hood, Induron Executive VP

Amidst all the political name calling, Occupy this-and-that and bad news on TV, there really are still some true American philanthropists.

The earthquake that struck Washington, D.C., last August caused structural cracks in the Washington Monument – not what you want to see in a national landmark honoring the father of our country. But David Rubenstein, co-founder of The Carlyle Group, donated the $7.5 million needed to restore the landmark to its original glory.

I have to think that if there were more people like Rubenstein in America, we’d all be better off. All those complaining about the 1%-ers wouldn’t have much to gripe about! We can all learn from him that it’s important to give back to causes we support, whether we can give $1 or $1 million.

Cezanne, Van Gogh or Monet?

By Davies Hood, Induron Executive VP

If you happen to own a painting by one of the Modern Masters Cezanne, Van Gogh or Monet, and are looking for some interior flat latex house paint for your own personal art gallery, here’s your lead – check out Durability + Design’s article about a new paint collaboration between the Guggenheim museum and Fine Paints of Europe. These colors will also work if you happen to live inside a house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It’s fun to dream isn’t it?


What would King Kong say?

The Empire State Building has gone green! No, not green like the jungle – It’s been LEED Certified by the U.S. Green Building Council. Induron Coatings would like to offer congratulations to all involved parties!
