Transmission tower paint coating -- Indurator from Induron Coatings

Transmission tower paint coating Indurator Induron Coatings

Birmingham, AL — Transmission and distribution paint coating for transmission towers — Induratar, a single-component, moisture-cured coal tar urethane coating fortified with micaceous iron oxide — is available from Induron Coatings to extend the transmission and distribution painting season.

Induratar transmission and distribution paint coating combines older technology with new materials to penetrate and seal rusty galvanized steel on electric transmission tower footings. It’s designed for low temperatures and/or damp conditions, and can be specified on concrete and steel as a replacement for coal tar epoxies (CTEs). It uses moisture to initiate the curing process and will cure at temperatures that are just above freezing. This allows the painting season to be extended in areas that before had to wait for temperatures to warm up to apply coatings.

Induratar transmission tower paint coating advantages are significant:
•    It can be backfilled or put into immersion after 4 hours at 77 degrees Farenheit.
•    It is superior to CTEs in weathering, impact resistance, adhesion, corrosion resistance and heat resistance.
•    Because it is reinforced with micaceous iron oxide, it provides better edge protection, recoatability and toughness.

This versatile coating/immersion lining can be used with other MCUs, over marginally cleaned steel for below-grade exposures or with organic zinc-rich primers over blasted steel immersion or atmospheric exposures. Two coats of Induratar can be used on concrete surfaces for tide zones or as a replacement for CTE in splash, spill or immersion conditions.

“We’re excited to introduce this new product for the T&D industry,” said Induron President Davies Hood. “Even at a 65 year old industrial paint company like Induron, we are always looking for innovative new ideas and ways to improve upon the products that we offer. Induratar is a great addition to our product line.”

Induratar is the most recent in Induron’s line of proven coatings for the T&D industry, including Induraguard 9200.
