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 […]

Industrial coatings are crucial in safeguarding various surfaces from damage and deterioration. Whether it’s protecting metal structures from corrosion or shielding concrete surfaces from wear and tear, these coatings have become essential throughout many industries.Although the primary purpose of protective coatings is to create a barrier that shields the substrate from external attacks such as:In […]

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 […]

Water towers are essential to our water supply system and must remain safe and secure to ensure that the public is not at risk. But to do that, water towers must be regularly maintained and routinely inspected by certified NACE inspectors or repaired by qualified coating experts. To ensure the safety and lives of these professionals, […]

When deciding on the most suitable primer, coating, or sealant for your water tower, you should consider the type of substrate that needs to be protected and the environmental conditions, like weathering and human interaction.
