A great start for 2019
What’s coming down the pipeline? In Itac’s case it currently looks like plenty. A conservative estimate puts potential orders at at least a million pounds. Here’s an idea of what’s to come.
Talking of pipelines, one Itac customer knows all too well just how difficult it is to pump cold chemicals thick and fast along industrial steel pipes. The problem is coagulation. The way to reduce the viscosity is to elevate the temperature to over 500ºC. In order to superheat the chemicals to those temperatures, the pipes themselves need protection to avoid the metal rusting and corroding. Itac is actively developing a coating to meet these extreme demands. Once tests are complete this business should start flowing in.
Another bluechip customer involved with security printing would like to improve and shorten its supply chain by sourcing a specialist coating from closer to home. Itac’s confidential compounding facilities should provide the perfect solution.
For the construction industry, Itac is currently developing a coating for cladding with improved flame retardancy, to be marketed by its Delvemade division.
It’s just as well Itac’s team are keen and lean with all the flexibility and capacity within their new factory to manage the demand for increased output.
