Owens Corning

Owens Corning manufacture glass wool.  The process involves a piece of equipment called a hydroformer. This machine is constantly wet as the process of manufacturing glass wool requires large amounts of water.  Due to the nature of the environment the hydroformer has seen large areas of accelerated corrosion.  Specialist Painting Group were tasked with sourcing a coating system that would extend the life expectancy of the hydroformer by up to ten years.  The coating system we specified was a moisture curing urethane from Steelpaint in Germany.  SPG is an approved Steelpaint applicator.  The coating system is designed for submerged conditions and splash zones.
