Houghton, Egyptian

August 10, 2007

Houghton International Inc. has contracted with Franklin, TN-based Egyptian Coatings Co. to sell and market ThermadepSM, a patented, one-step, water-based coating process for metal parts requiring short-term rust protection or other aesthetic properties. Through the partnership, Houghton will market the patented Thermadep process to its global metalworking customer base.
Thermadep protective coatings—available clear and in a variety of colors—are applied by dipping heated parts into a bath of low-VOC, water-based polymer solution. Because Thermadep coatings contain low or no volatile organic compounds, the process can replace oiling, painting and plating processes, making the workplace safer and environmentally friendly.
