“Greenkote usage is showing a strong rise in the markets we serve,” says Greenkote CEO Mark Gore. “Over the past year we’ve seen a steady increase in orders for anti-corrosion and metal protection coatings, and our new state-of-the-art coating line will help us keep pace with the need.”
The company says that the new facilities will multiply current capacity by nearly two and a half times, giving the company the ability to process more than 150 tons of parts per month. It will also provide for the application of specialised topcoats and sealers to Greenkote treated components to further enhance the coating performance.
Recently, the company announced its treatment system has been used to protect the assembly bolts used in the Chernobyl New Safe Confinement, a structure measuring 108 metres high and 162 metres long, with a span of 257 metres and a lifetime of a minimum of 100 years. The structure was finally moved into position last month, 6 years after work started on it.
Greenkote treated bolts have also been used to repair London’s iconic Cheesegrater building.
