Sandvik Rock Processing (SRP) has recently implemented Sherwin-William’s industry coating products into their Swedish operations. SRP, who manufactures equipment for the mining and construction industry, will use Sherwin-William’s waterborne Kem Aqua Dip Coating and Kem Aqua 301 to coat stone crushers intended for global export. 

Sandvik Rock Processing (SRP) has recently implemented Sherwin-William’s industry coating products into their Swedish operations. SRP, who manufactures equipment for the mining and construction industry, will use Sherwin-William’s waterborne Kem Aqua Dip Coating and Kem Aqua 301 to coat stone crushers intended for global export.

A large number of crushers will be coated with the low solvent-based Kem Aqua coatings, which provide SRP with major environmental benefits while improving the finish quality and appearance:

“We initiated a dialogue with Sherwin-Williams about a year and a half ago. The evaluation process took some time, but even after the first round of testing it became clear that the products showed clear advantages compared to our previous solution. In terms of product benefits, we we’re mainly drawn to the coating’s adhesive capabilities, their water resistance, and the quality of the finishes. All of these factors were important to us, although it must be said that the improved finish was a bonus, but naturally, it contributed to our decision. The coatings flow great, are easy to apply and also dry quickly, says Jörgen Mikkelsen, Process Expert Surface Treatment, Sandvik SRP.

Experts from Sherwin-Williams visited Sandvik several times during the process to make sure that exactly the right products were chosen. This commitment proved vital, as Sandvik needed a reliable partner for further collaborations:  

“As a future-oriented company, Sandvik required a supplier that understood their needs and was willing to continuously develop more qualitative and environmentally adapted products for them. In fact, a new collaboration is already underway as we’re now developing a new customized coating that will improve Sandvik’s production even further”, says Lars Sandqvist, Technical Projects Manager, Sherwin-Williams.
