From Tikkurila’s very first days of industrial paint production, we have been providing trusted coating solutions for water and wastewater treatment plants. Today we supply industrial coatings for facilities around the world – predominantly assets belonging to state-owned utility companies – backed by technical advisory from certified FROSIO or other inspectors to ensure the right support for every customer in this demanding application area.
Heavy-duty solutions for extreme environments
Water and wastewater treatment plants are highly corrosive environments that require heavy-duty coating solutions. Equipment like tanks, troughs, aerators, filter beds and clarifiers must be well protected as they are exposed to chemical stress and immersed in liquid.
Tikkurila offers a range of high-performance coatings that are resistant to chemicals and/or water as well as providing high mechanical resistance to protect against harsh environmental conditions. Our coating solutions are also easy to apply in the uncontrolled conditions typical of water and wastewater treatment facilities.
Sustainable solutions with reduced maintenance
Maintenance is a significant cost for water and wastewater treatment plants, so our coatings have been developed to have extended maintenance intervals to make them more cost effective over the lifetime of the asset.
Thoroughly tested for long-term protection
We offer both new and maintenance painting systems that have been developed to last, with thorough chemical resistance testing to ensure our high quality standards are maintained. We have products suitable for both steel and concrete surfaces, with a large selection of ISO 12944-5 systems. Our paint systems comply with ISO 12944-6, NORSOK and other leading standards.
Working with you to protect your assets
We have decades of experience in protecting water and wastewater treatment facilities and can work with you to understand your needs across the lifetime of your facility, identifying opportunities to improve efficiency by reducing costs, accelerating project schedules and carefully managing the supply chain.
Our technical service experts can help you to select the right systems for your application, as well as providing paint-shop audits to improve and streamline your application process and ensure high-quality surface treatment. Whatever your business goals, we are ready to help you achieve them.
