Castagra is an American company headquartered in Reno, Nevada. It operates principally in Houston, Texas, where the bulk of the coatings are produced and developed.
Castagras’ products are quite unlike conventional epoxies, polyurethanes, and polyurea coatings, being VOC-free and BPA-free. Simply put Ecodur is a veggie plastic – based on vegetable oil and a common mineral called gypsum widely available in the US.
Highly fire retardant as it gives off water vapor when heated, the contents are renewable and recyclable and form a natural, incredibly durable protective layer without the use of toxic solvents.
The purity of Castagras’ Ecodur is such that it is certified for use in drinking water tanks.
With 20-year history of tough field use, they outperform conventional coatings in durability, cost and protection for a wider variety of tank contents. They also neatly address important concerns companies have about sustainability, worker safety and the environment.
The ingredients are renewable castor oil and cheap and abundant gypsum. The resultant coating sticks to steel and concrete between 98 – 100% and 100% to wood type materials as it actually combines at a molecular level with cellulosic material.
Ecodur has shown no detectable deterioration in sea water after 20 years and the frack coatings have double the life expectancy where failure can be measured in mere months for conventional coatings and have been known to fail in weeks with particularly aggressive chemicals.
No emissions of nasty volatile organic compounds, no isocyanates, no petroleum chemicals, it is non toxic and cheaper, faster, better, sprayable and with a 20-plus year pedigree of field proven experience.
Ecodur is used for rehabilitating corroded assets such as:
- Lift Stations
- Wet Wells
- Large Diameter Pipe
- Water Storage Tanks
- Sewage Treatment
- Water Treatment
- AWWA/D-102 approved ( there is no actual certificate for this)
