QUAKERCOAT ® 547

CASE STUDY − COATING

 

CHALLENGES


 

A major Tube and Pipe manufacturer was experiencing the following problems due to the coating they were using:

  • Corrosion problems in the field
  • Very high clean-up expenses
  • Uncontrollable coating usage
  • Fire and health hazards
  • Double processing of pipes

Instead of focusing on the coating, Quaker used a value added approach, centering on the identification of the manufacturer′s necessities and problems, and delivering solutions.

  • Quaker met with the manufacturer and identified the specific problems on the line
  • They proposed a trial of an upgraded solvent based coating QUAKERCOAT ® 547 as a solution to their problems and a way to optimize their lines
