New Product Innovation Award for Anticorrosion Coatings

Carboline (St. Louis, Missouri, USA) recently accepted a new product innovation award for North American anticorrosion coatings at Frost & Sullivan’s 2018 Best Practices Awards Gala.

Frost & Sullivan (San Antonio, Texas, USA) recognized the global coatings manufacturer for its newly introduced Carbozinc 608 HB and Carboquick 200 products.

“Being named as the winner is a testament to our commitment to innovation, our employees, and their tireless efforts to bring world-class protective coatings to market,” says Chris Tiernay, president and chief operating officer.

According to the manufacturer, Carbozinc 608 HB is the industry’s only hybrid zinc primer that can be applied at twice the thickness of traditional epoxy zinc primers. Meanwhile, Carboquick 200 is a direct-to-metal (DTM) polyaspartic anticorrosion coating, which is the first in a series of products focused on providing a fast and easy-to-apply finish coat.

“While Carbozinc 608 HB eliminates the need for an intermediate coat, Carboquick 200 offers highly valued features such as two-hour dry to handle time, reduced need for a primer and/or intermediate coat, and excellent color and gloss retention,” says Christeena Thomas, senior research analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “With its aggressive and efficient R&D [research and development] strategy, the company has excelled in providing high-value, innovative products to its customer base.”

The manufacturer, which produces performance coatings, linings, and fireproofing products in more than 20 manufacturing facilities around the world, says the products’ simplified process, reduced volume of material used, and fewer application steps make them unique compared to other products.
