World Water Day, observed annually on March 22, is a global event that highlights the severity of the worldwide water crisis and advocates for sustainable ways of protecting our planet’s most precious resource—water. In today’s blog, we delve into the impacts of World Water Day 2024 and how you can play a crucial role in […]

Coastal environments present unique challenges when it comes to dealing with corrosion. The combination of saltwater, high humidity, and constant exposure to the elements creates an environment highly corrosive to metals. As a result, structures and equipment in coastal areas are particularly susceptible to degradation and deterioration.In this blog, we will look at the problems […]

The primary purpose of a water tower is to provide consistent water pressure throughout the water distribution system. By storing water at an elevated height, gravity helps create the necessary pressure to push the water through pipes and into homes, businesses, and other establishments. It ensures community members have adequate pressure to access water for […]

The primary function of protective coating pigments is to enhance the longevity and resistance of coatings by introducing desirable protective properties.Pigments aid in the protection of a surface substrate against environmental factors such as ultraviolet radiation, moisture, chemicals, and abrasion. They act as a shield, forming a protective barrier on the surface that helps prevent […]

Surface preparation is a crucial step in asset management. The process involves stripping away remnants of protective coatings or contaminants to leave behind a clean, clear surface to apply new coating layers. The goal is to ensure proper adhesion, durability, and overall quality of the final product.One commonly used method of surface preparation is shot […]

Water tank freeze protection is a crucial aspect of winter maintenance for water asset managers. Freezing temperatures can cause significant damage to a water storage tank, leading to costly repairs and disruptions in water supply.Knowing how to prevent freezing water in storage containers is crucial for optimal performance and longevity. By taking necessary precautions, you […]

Protective coating services play a crucial role in various industries by providing surface defense. Those coatings are designed to enhance the durability and longevity of materials, as well as provide resistance against:Industrial coatings are commonly used in water asset management, manufacturing, construction, automotive, aerospace, and marine industries. Standard industrial coatings protect substrate surfaces, such as:These […]

Protective coatings play a vital role in various industries, providing essential protection to surfaces against corrosion, wear and tear, and other damaging factors. But before a surface substrate can get coated, it must be properly prepped.Surface preparation is a crucial step before applying protective coatings. It involves cleaning a surface thoroughly and removing contaminants that […]

Industrial paint and coatings protect surfaces from corrosive damage and environmental wear that can contaminate potable water. In addition, it gets used to enhance the outward appearance of a surface, making it more aesthetically pleasing. But the recently introduced NSF 600 standards that took effect on protective paints and coating earlier this year have changed the industry forever.These paints and […]

Water towers are an essential part of any municipality’s water asset system. Large, elevated water storage tanks store and distribute municipal water supply.Water towers help regulate the pressure in a municipal water system by providing a pressurized water reserve during periods of high demand. They also offer a buffer against fluctuations in the need for […]
