Mike Hong, president and CEO of Dura Coat Products Inc., announced that the expansion of the Huntsville, Ala., manufacturing plant is now complete. The factory has been undergoing construction recently to add 35,000 square feet of paint manufacturing capability.

The plant was originally built in 2002, designed from the ground up specifically for paint manufacturing. It was located to serve customers in the southeast and offer next day delivery within a 500-mile radius. Built next to the Wheeler Wild Life Refuge, a 35,000-acre preserve along the Tennessee River and habitat for wintering and migrating birds in the eastern U.S., Dura Coat adheres to stringent environmental restrictions and upholds some of the highest air quality, wastewater and hazardous waste management standards.

Because of increasing demands, the factory needed to expand and has now approximately doubled its manufacturing capacity.

PVDF Coil Coating Resists Acid Rain

To combat environmental conditions harmful to metal roofs, coil coatings manufacturer Dura Coat Products Inc. has introduced a coastal coating system to resist corrosive environments. The formulation features PVDF-based Durapon 70 as a top coat applied over Dura Coat’s DC425G 380 high-build primer. Conditions include salt air within 1,500 feet of the coast, and acidic rains such as those common in the heavy industrial areas of the nation.

Durapon 70 is one of Dura Coat’s new generation PVDF coatings designed to create an exceptionally tough surface that’s resistant to scratching, scuffing, transit abrasion and the elements, yet is flexible for the most demanding post-forming operations.

For added protection, Dura Coat now offers new Edge Seal, a clear, air dry sealer that is applied with a roller to help seal cut edges of metal panels and trim that occur during the installation process. Edge Seal can also be applied during routine roof maintenance.

Dura Coat Product’s Durapon 70 provides some of the finest metal protection available. With the addition of the new Edge Seal Coating, raw metal edges are also protected against corrosion.
