April 21, 2014

Axalta Coating Systems will showcase industrial coatings at the annual American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association (ASLRRA) convention on April 22 – 25, 2014 in San Diego, CA.

Coatings experts will staff the Axalta booth #626 that will feature a complete system of premium-quality products including: Imron® polyurethane; Corlar epoxy; and Tufcote® acrylic products designed to protect rail assets from corrosion, harsh environments and graffiti.

For more than 90 years, Axalta has supplied the railroad industry with products formulated to deliver outstanding durability, exceptional quality and excellent color and gloss retention such as Imron industrial strength polyurethane topcoats.  Axalta created these products to provide excellent chemical and corrosion resistance and deliver a very high gloss appearance with an ultra-low 0.3 lbs/gal VOC level.

For added protection, Axalta designed its Imron EZ-3460S high gloss clear coat to be extremely durable, have excellent cleaning properties, and resist graffiti and other debris.

"Consistently delivering premium quality products to meet the highest expectations of corrosion protection and appearance truly makes our products built for performance," said Richard Cecchini, Axalta Transportation Sales Manager.  "This should translate to a lower cost of ownership so rail fleets can stay in service longer."
