Indestructible Paint Announces Focus


United Kingdom-based specialty coatings manufacturer Indestructible Paint Ltd. announced earlier this month that it has launched a dedicated focus on coatings in the rail industry.

According to the press release, the move is set to match coating technologies proven in some of the most challenging environments, particularly in the rail sector. Additionally, the move expects to make significant enhancements to the company’s existing customers in the U.K. and worldwide.

“From aerospace to automotive and from general engineering to the military sector, our focus on meeting both larger volume and niche needs has enabled us to grow an industry-leading reputation, which offers user benefits that are now being extended into the rail sector,” the release stated.

Along with Indestructible Paint’s focus launch, the company has also announced the appointment of Mike Booth to the position of Product Specialist, Rail. Booth is reported to have over 30 years’ experience in the rail industry and will oversee all activity in the rail market.

Over his years in the industry, Booth reports that he was heavily engaged in the move away from solvent systems in the 1990s to water-based and solvent-free products, which are still the main product types used in the industry today.

“I have been involved in a wide range of activities in the rail sector including, in particular, liquid applications of high performance coatings for customers that include passenger rail, underground operators, and the rail freight sector as well as an extensive number of infrastructure organizations,” said Booth. 

Regarding the appointment, Brian Norton, Indestructible Paint’s Managing Director said, “We are delighted that Mike has been able to join us and that his knowledge and expertise are now available to spearhead our move into the rail industry.

“Apart from his understanding of paint and coating technology, Mike is well versed in the specific needs of the rail sector, such as the critical requirement to observe very tight shut down or possession times, so I am very confident that he will be able to build our presence in this sector very quickly.”
