Axalta Coating Systems (Philidelphia) won a four-year contract to supply industrial coatings and architectural building paint to restore and sustain different buildings and the locks of the Panama Canal. Several different Axalta coating products will be used to refurbish the largest canal in the world and repaint many different structures in the Canal Zone during the restoration project. Axalta’s Renzel and Galvox architectural paints will be used on interior and exterior building walls and trim, while the floors will be protected with Axalta’s Corlar and Imron Industrial coating products. Interior and exterior galvanized and other metal surfaces, including the canal locks, will be coated with Ganicin, Speedtec and Galvox, which are designed to reduce application time for use on long-lasting, heavy-duty substrates, such as marine surfaces constantly exposed to water.
