QUAKERCOAT ® 556

CASE STUDY − CORROSION PREVENTIVE

 

CHALLENGES


 

A large Tube & Pipe manufacturer dealt with poor coating issues that lead to:

  • Cleanup/disposal costs
  • Warranty returns
  • Lost production due to downtime

In addition, they needed a partner for service and engineering assistance. Key improvement areas desired by the customer included:

  • Reduce drippage to floor which reduced cleanup disposal cost
  • Reduce re-coat cost due to poor coating
  • TEQEC compliant air permit without switching to a water-based product in the summer
  • Service provider
  • Engineering assistance in design of new coater equipment
  • Improved coating efficiency
  • Strong buyer/seller relationship

 

THE SOLUTION


 

Quaker introduced their QUAKERCOAT ® 556 product and worked with the customer to meet their service/engineering needs. As a result, the customer was able to:

  • Lower the manpower required
  • Reduce costs
  • Gain process efficiencies
  • Increase uptime

The impact of the following benefits can be seen in the customer′s decision to renew their contract with Quaker for an additional three years.
