Axalta coating systems wins Panama Canal contract

Axalta Coating Systems, a supplier of liquid and powder coatings, has entered a four-year contract to supply industrial coatings and architectural building paint that will be used to restore and sustain different buildings and the locks of the Panama Canal.

Several different Axalta coating products, each formulated to meet the needs of different materials, will be used to reinvigorate the largest canal in the world and meet the needs of the many different structures in the canal zone that will be repainted during the restoration project.

Axalta’s Renzel and Galvox architectural paints will be used on the building walls and trim. Floors will be protected with the brand's Corlar and Imron Industrial coating products. Metal surfaces will be coated with Ganicin, Speedtec and Galvox, which are designed to reduce application time by being directly applied to metal and suitable for use on long-lasting, heavy-duty substrates, such as marine surfaces constantly exposed to water.

The Panama Canal has moved over a million ships throughout its history and is crossed by over 14,000 vessels per year from the mighty locks of the Miraflores to the historic gates of the Gatun.
