Recently we received a call from a large manufacturer that makes a type of caustic polymer that is poured into large vats at 500 degrees. They needed a coating to protect the vats from corrosion and to prevent the polymers from sticking to the concrete. We have many epoxy coatings for a wide variety of applications but nothing that could stand up to a continuous 500 degrees. So we did some research and discovered a company that makes an industrial grade ceramic epoxy coating. There were many other ceramic coatings but they were all residential grade and mostly for use as an upgrade to car wax or other very light duty needs but this one product was geared towards industrial applications. So we called this customer back with the bad news that we couldn’t provide a product to fit their needs but good news that we found a company that most likely could. They were very appreciative and promised that we would get the call for their upcoming flooring projects.
One of the most important keys to a successful coating application is to make sure you choose the right product for your specific application. That’s why we offer so many different types of epoxy coating products, in fact we have a section called Specialty Coatings. There is no one type epoxy fits all product or at least there shouldn’t be. Take a look around our website and be sure to checkout the Specialty Coating section. We also have what we think is the most informative website with regards to epoxy coating product information and how to choose and apply on correctly so you only have to do it once, so take a look at the Need To Know section. If for some reason you don’t think any of our products fit your needs give us a call or shoot us an email it may just be that your application is not listed for a particular product since there are 100s of different uses we can’t list them all. We can double check to see if one of our products will work for you or steer you in the right direction to find a product that will work for you.
