Innovations in rail vehicle
coating are being driven
by the trend towards conserving energy
While this has led to greater use of
modern products, such as high-solids paints, waterborne paints and functional systems, coating manufacturers still have a job to do, because e. g. the chemical cleaners used for removing graffiti
tend to destroy solventless and eco-friendly systems. One solution might be to create tougher paints. Another could be easy-to-clean coatings that eliminate the need to use harsh cleaning agents in
the first place.
A further factor driving innovation is the need to cut costs and increase productivity in the coating process. Automation and streamlining are just two ways in which plant and equipment manufacturers might seek to devise innovative solutions here.
