Ingersoll Rand Provides Site Evaluations for Waterborne Paint Users

Davidson, NC – March 22, 2010 (NYSE:IR) – Ingersoll Rand is offering site evaluations on complete compressed air systems for those businesses and facilities moving to the use of waterborne paints.  The compressed air and air treatment systems supporting paint booths will be evaluated by an Ingersoll Rand compressed air professional to ensure necessary requirements are met for the use of waterborne paints.
The move to waterborne paint systems is an effective way to protect the environment without reducing quality and productivity. Waterborne paint systems lower the volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions, improving air quality and the environment. From the compressor room to the spraying equipment, Ingersoll Rand has the technology, equipment and expertise to make the transition to waterborne seamless, efficient and productive.

“The move to waterborne paint is becoming a requirement in many areas as more and more businesses are focusing on the environment,” said Matthew Smith, Marketing Manager for Ingersoll Rand. “An evaluation by Ingersoll Rand of your compressed air system will help ensure the same flawless quality of work following the move to waterborne paints.  Only through a complete understanding and evaluation of your goals and needs, based on a site assessment, can decisions be made to make sure conversion costs are minimized.”

The on-site evaluation will determine if the compressed air system is equipped to handle the additional air requirements for dryers as well as test the quality of the air to ensure that it is clean and dry, which is more critical than ever with the use of waterborne paints. Additionally, Ingersoll Rand compressed air professionals can make recommendations on ways to maximize reliability and improve the efficiency of your compressed air systems thus helping to reduce energy costs.
