Luvata partners with Gulf Coast Protective Coatings

To bring spray-applied coil corrosion protection to Gulf Coast Region

(8 January 2015) Luvata has partnered with Gulf Coast Protective Coatings to bring its branded Insitu® spray-applied coil and cabinet corrosion protection to Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana and the Florida Panhandle.

Luvata Insitu is a water-based, synthetic flexible polymer coating, engineered specifically to extend the lives of HVAC/R heat transfer coils and components. The spray-applied coating maintains operating efficiency while reducing maintenance and operating costs.

In 2012 Luvata established an extensive training program to certify Insitu applicators to meet the growing demand for coil and cabinet corrosion protection worldwide. “In partnering with Gulf Coast Protective Coatings to grow our network of licensed Insitu applicators, we will better serve our HVACR customers in the Gulf Coast area,” indicates Mike Powell, Head of Coatings for Luvata.

Gulf Coast Protective Coatings has been applying corrosion coatings in the Gulf Coast Region since 1992.  “We are extremely excited about our new partnership with Luvata,” said Joey Ryan, Sales Manager with Gulf Coast Protective Coatings.  “We believe that with our level of expertise in applying coatings and the quality product that Luvata provides, our customers will be getting the best in spray applied corrosion protection.”

Luvata offers two proven protective coatings for HVACR equipment - ElectroFin® E-coat and Luvata Insitu. Insitu is applied to equipment after market, whereas ElectroFin E-Coat is a factory-applied, full-immersion solution. They are recognized internationally by HVACR equipment manufacturers as the best corrosion protection coatings for coastal environments.
