Epoxy coatings are commonly used across industries for their protective, corrosion-resistant properties. In the water and wastewater industry, these coatings protect pipes and tanks used in the treatment and storage process. Ceramic epoxy in particular is comprised of epoxy resin that is fortified with a ceramic pigment that reduces permeability and prohibits microbial growth.
