Transit Coatings

Transit coatings protect metal and most painted surfaces during domestic and international shipment. When properly applied, the transit coating will prevent damage from sea water, acid rain, insects, bird droppings, smoke, pollution, dirt and debris.

Now more than ever, manufacturers of large equipment need ways to protect their products from factory to delivery. The shift away from heavy, environmentally damaging coatings means metal surfaces are increasingly susceptible to corrosion. Improperly protected hose fittings and connectors, for example, are now exposed to corrosion-causing conditions, especially during export.
