ROI Estimate (as determined by TAQ): The ROI on product was determined to be 14 months, but energy was not as important to them as process control during rain showers and visual inspection of the tower.
Application Notes: The application was done during the winter, but this wasn’t a problem because it was done when the tower was in service. The low ambient temperatures were not important because the coating was force cured by the 200?F (93?C) surface.
Quote from end user and/or applicator: “We have several plants in the area and I am going to setup a meeting so we can show them what we have done here. I think they are going to want to do the same.”
