The inherent corrosive nature of the materials involved in the mining industry is extremely demanding on the coatings used. It is because of this demand that powder coatings have emerged as a viable option in this market.
The proven corrosion resistance and the exceptional durability of powder coatings are two main reasons for this increase. When you add the benefits of reduced turnaround times and competitive pricing, powder coatings are quickly becoming a recognized and relied upon choice for industrial coatings in this industry. We recognize that Powder Coatings and wet coatings both have a place in this market, and ultimately the end user can reap the rewards of utilizing both coating technologies.
