The maintenance measures needed in the infrastructure sector and the demand for heavy-duty corrosion protection are constantly increasing. Powerful, reliable application systems and equipment are needed for protective coatings based on extremely viscous high-solids paints.
Recent surveys have demonstrated the importance of heavy-duty corrosion protection products for a number of industries, in particular in the infrastructure sector, and therefore for the economy as a whole. For example, the costs incurred worldwide as a result of corrosion, which include materials, equipment, replacement components and repair and maintenance services, amount to as much as 1.4 billion euros (source: World Corrosion Organisation).
