“Carboline products are very consistent in quality and performance. The customer service team from Carboline is very capable and customer service oriented.”

The coating crew at Nu Steel chose to use Carboguard 890 by Carboline because of it’s excellent performance protecting steel. They applied the coating using  the Graco XP50 Plural Component Sprayer taking extra care to get the correct coating thickness throughout the entire surface of the metal. Because the coating was applied during the cool season, an accelerant was blended with the coating to aid in the curing time. The team at Nu Steel have been using Carboline products for years due to their well known ease of application and excellent results. Sales Manager Steve Roberson noted that “Carboline products are very consistent in quality and performance. The customer service team from Carboline is very capable and customer service oriented.”
