When it comes to industrial maintenance coatings and the additives used in them, it's crucial to consider specific requirements as various factors influence the choice of additives. For instance, the regulations and conditions for industrial floor and wall coatings in production and storage areas are quite distinct from those for maintaining industrial plants.
Depending on the end applications, industrial maintenance coatings often have very different requirements for anti-corrosion properties, so the composition of the formula is also highly variable. Light anticorrosive coatings, such as those used for steel structures, have seen a significant adoption of water-based solutions, reflecting the ongoing trend.
