“Rail car and transportation maintenance structures are constructed to last and need a tough, durable finish to ensure their sturdy build stays intact,” said Michael Heineman, Axalta’s VP of Rail and High Performance Coatings. “Our new Tufcote line’s formulations and field proven technologies yield lasting results, improving the durability, protection and aesthetics of these substrates over time.”
Axalta’s expansion into the industrial rail car segment provides the industry with cost-effective products that are designed to protect rail assets and transportation equipment from chemical and corrosion damage, weathering, and chipping, while still maintaining a beautiful finish. Tufcote protective coatings are ideal for use on railcars, steel storage tanks, and heavy equipment.
