No-odor enamel

Beyond Multipurpose Enamel is a no- odor, zero VOC and HAP, industrial-grade coating that allows users to paint in confined, occupied spaces without the risks associated with solvent odors and flammability. Enamel can be used on metal, concrete, masonry, wood, drywall, and tile using brush, roller, or spray gun. Coating can be used indoors or outdoors and is available in standard colors and tint bases in satin or gloss finishes.

Nonslip coating

Stop-Slip HDV antislip coating resists chemicals, fuels, and UV; provides superior traction; prevents hydroplaning; and is formulated to withstand extreme wear. The low-odor, low-VOC coating is applied with trowel or roller, dries in 24_48 hr, and is easy to clean.

Zinc coating

Cold Galvanize 99% protective coating is available in a 13-oz aerosol can; contains 99% pure zinc; and provides superior, long-term protection against rust and corrosion on ferrous bar metal and previously galvanized surfaces. With galvanic action equivalent to that of hot-dip galvanizing, the coating bonds easily to metal and acts as a sacrificial layer — the zinc oxidizes instead of the metal.

Annual Salary Survey

After two years of economic concerns, manufacturing leaders once again have homed in on the single biggest issue facing their operations:

It's the workers—or more specifically, the lack of workers.

The 2017 Plant Engineering Salary Survey looks at not just what plant managers make, but what they think. As they look across their plants today, plant managers say they don’t have the operational depth to take on the new technologies and new challenges of global manufacturing.
