A leading coatings manufacturer that provides solutions for oil and gas pipelines, Sherwin-Williams, has received a major industry award for sustainable innovation.
The company received the British Coatings Federation Award for its development of Dura-Plate 301W, a new product that is helping to change the face of the energy and infrastructure markets in Europe. The Dura-Plate 301W offers a longer painting calendar, increased efficiencies and reduced overall project costs.
The company has developed a breakthrough product for asset protection in harsh environments. Working with its customers, the technical team researched and developed the product, which combines surface and humidity tolerance with low temperature curing.
The technology has won other merits from the oil and gas industry for its broad use in atmospheric service conditions in offshore, marine, industrial and infrastructure applications.
Ian Walker, Managing Director of Sherwin-Williams Protective and Marine Coatings Europe, Middle East and Africa, said: “This is recognition of some great work from the team behind the scenes and how important it is to listen to customers. We’re delighted that our customers have benefitted from the difference we have made to their asset protection challenges.”
