PROBLEM: Bucyrus Erie was looking to improve their line striping applications inside their manufacturing facility. They were repainting their lines at least once a month because they were wearing away prematurely. This meant that they were spending lot of time and money on a problematic area every month and needed a better, long-term solution.
SOLUTION: A Rust-Oleum representative inspected the areas and suggested they change their application process to include proper floor preparation such as scarification. This process would result in better adhesion of the coating. After the floor was prepared they could apply an epoxy line stripe system consisting of Rust-Oleum 9100 System Epoxy and 6500 System 100% High Build Epoxy. This system would provide them with an extremely durable and long-lasting solution. Bucyrus was very interested in this approach and asked for a demonstration of the Rust-Oleum Grind and Go Surface Prep Machine to prepare the floor as well as the epoxy coating system. They were impressed by the demonstration and decided to move ahead with the product recommendations. After the successful application Bucyrus Erie estimates saving a few hundred thousand dollars annualy by reducing the amount of times they had to restripe their floors as well as the labor and downtime associated with the process.
