Different Types Of Industrial Coatings And Their Applications

In Latin, obic is the root word for barrier. When we founded our company in 2017, we couldn’t think of a better name for our products. Regardless of whether we are working on a manhole rehabilitation project, restoring an aging stormwater culvert or keeping drinking water safe with water treatment structure repairs, OBIC products are all designed to provide a long-lasting, cost-effective barrier of protection.

Made of a flexible polymer that is environmentally friendly, OBIC coating systems are spray applied and cure in minutes. This makes them ideal for use in a variety of industries.

Water Treatment and Distribution

Drinking water distribution systems rely on metallic and concrete pipes, which are at risk for corrosion.

As these systems age, concrete degradation or rust in metallic pipes begins to contaminate the drinking water that runs through them. With OBIC 1100PW, you can repair current issues while also protecting against future corrosion. This UL certified NSF/ANSI 61 polyurea coating is approved for use in potable water system applications, including distribution lines, storage tanks and water treatment structure repair.

Municipal Wastewater & Sanitary Sewer

From big cities to small rural communities, aging sewer infrastructure is a problem impacting the entire country. Fortunately, OBIC products offer no-dig solutions for everything from sewer lining repair to manhole rehabilitation. Our customized lining systems are spray applied and cure in minutes, so you can be back up and running with minimal disruption to services. Built to withstand the harshest of environments, our lining system will protect your sewer system from hydrogen sulfide corrosion and extend the life of the structures by approximately 50 years.

Transportation & Stormwater Culverts

OBIC’s polyurea lining system offers an ideal solution for concrete and steel bridge decking, tunnels, parking garage structures and pedestrian walkways. It can also effectively repair and restore severely deteriorated stormwater culverts. In addition to extending the life expectancy of the culvert, our semi-structural polyurea-hybrid ensures greater structural integrity. In other words, the OBIC lining system offers an affordable, long-lasting alternative to the replacement of transportation infrastructure and stormwater culverts.

Industrial & Manufacturing Concrete Degradation

Concrete degradation is a common occurrence in industrial and manufacturing facilities. When exposed to corrosive environments or harsh weather conditions, it doesn’t take long for concrete degradation to occur. Unless steps are taken to protect the concrete structures, they will eventually begin to crumble and crack. Fortunately, OBIC’s-high performance lining system can repair concrete degradation and restore its structural integrity. Versatile enough to protect concrete from even the harshest of environments, OBIC’s lining systems won’t crack under the pressure of extreme temperature changes or weather conditions.
