Nano-Clear Industrial Coating Protects Oxidized Tank Cars

Nano-Clear Industrial Coating Protects Oxidized Tank Cars

Tank car owners spend a lot of money and time maintaining tank car assets to the highest quality standards, but are often let down by poor paint performance. Conventional paints are highly susceptible to UV damage - causing the surface to oxidize and lose protective properties. Tank car owners need to meet federal inspection requirements and cannot afford to spend money on paint systems that will not deliver performance over time. [More]
