Heavy Machinery

Agriculture, construction and mining equipment operate in some of the roughest environments day in and day out. Valspar coatings ensure that your equipment stands the test of time, protecting your brand and meeting your customers’ expectations. In addition, Valspar’s global network of manufacturing sites, technical support and application engineering allows manufacturers to meet color and performance standards across multiple geographies, manufacturing sites and sub-contractors.

Meeting the Challenge: Advanced Protection with Valspar Valde ECP Coating

Valspar’s Valde Edge Coverage Powder (ECP)  coating was specifically designed to address edge corrosion, the leading cause of corrosion claims for heavy machinery manufacturers. Valspar Valde ECP provides a two-coat, one-cure solution to meet the demanding specifications of the market, delivering a smooth finish and advanced edge corrosion protection with superior weathering capabilities. Compared to a two-cure powder system, manufacturers are achieving annual savings of $75,000 or more by eliminating capital, operational, cycle time and work-in-process expenses.
