Luvata Expands into California

Maker of HVAC/R corrosion-resistant coatings services says location can service local and Pacific Rim

Luvata ElectroFin, Inc. recently announced plans to expand its presence into Northern California to meet the growing demand for Luvata INSITU spray-applied coil and cabinet corrosion protection.

The facility will offer Insitu a spray applied, permanent, water-based, synthetic coating developed by Luvata ElectroFin specifically for the protection of heat exchange units and cabinet coating.

"The addition of the Northern California location combined with our Temecula, or Southern California operation, provides Luvata the opportunity to satisfy demand throughout the Western U.S., as well as for those customers shipping HVAC/R equipment into the Pacific Rim where corrosion is prevalent," states Mike Powell, Director Sales and Marketing with Luvata ElectroFin.

Luvata Insitu polymer coating contains ES2 (embedded stainless steel) pigment to provide a multi-layer structure which tightly bonds to the substrate. As the Insitu coating wears away over time, the stainless steel particles become more and more exposed, providing continued protection for the remainder of the coating and substrate underneath. Insitu is UV and chemical resistant, is environmentally sustainable and meets stringent air quality emission standards.

Through the acquisition of McIntyre coatings services assets and Luvata ElectroFins additional investment into the facility and equipment upgrades, the 13,000 square-foot facility is immediately ready to fully support the spray-applied market. The acquisition does not include McIntyres coil or air handling business units.

Luvata ElectroFin now offers five coating service centers including Louisville, Kentucky; Jacksonville, Texas; Temecula, California; Tampa, Florida and San Leandro, California.

Also offered from its Louisville and Jacksonville facilities is the factory applied solution, ElectroFin E-coat used as corrosion protection for fin and tube heat exchangers in coastal environments.
