The Indian paints and coatings industry has been observing a gradual shift from traditional whitewash to high-quality paints and innovative techniques. One of its advanced sectors, high-performance coatings, is used to protect the structures and surfaces with the requirement of enhanced abrasion, chemical resistance and adds durability. The sector has several ongoing expansions by major producers in the country.
An Indo - Malaysian Joint Venture, FLOSIL-BET COATINGS (INDIA) Pvt. LTD is one of the major names in the Industrial Paints and Coatings market with a genuine objective to reduce costs to customers. Primarily, Flosil Bet has focused on the maintenance of domain and established a legacy in maintaining complex assets like Petrochemicals, power plants, refineries, marine etc. Moreover, Flosil Bet is a principal coating supplier to PETRONAS Malaysia for all their land & offshore assets and plans to replicate the same in India, too.
Though, the Indian coatings market is likely to grow at CAGR of 2 to 3% over the next 2 years given the present scenario and the sluggish nature of project implementation, Flosil Bet is coming up with new projects to sustain the potential. Sharing the company’s differentiated approach to its clients, Arun Kumar Rathod, Managing Director of Flosil Bet, said, “We at, Flosil-Bet, help customers to identify key assets, inspect current asset status, and suggest better coating specifications depending upon the protection requirement and budgets.
Customers, therefore, adopt systems fully knowing the performance output based on their financial capabilities”. Market indicators suggest that Indian customers are eager to approach authentic products for flawless performance. Flosil Bet’s products are versatile and can be applied to a wide range of substrates like mild steel, carbon steel, aluminium and concrete.
Flosil-Bet adheres to international standards with the accessibility to high-capacity robotic manufacturing processes and delivers high volume solid paints which can be diluted to various customer specifications. Flosil Bet has inculcated convenience in operations to customers by saving costs on blasting, application on surfaces with a minimum surface profile like 10μm and maintenance of optimum inventory levels due to application flexibility of products offered.
Products that Withstand the Toughest Environments
In a successful engagement with a Marine Construction company, Flosil Bet provided Marine Coating, a lasting solution to ensure that they get a corrosion- free performance for a long duration. The Marine Coating has withstood a severe marine environment and maintained the aesthetics at the same time. Likewise, Flosil-BET is focused on delivering products with a higher maintenance interval. Moreover, the products are designed in an easy to use way that a smaller portfolio can manage the entire asset protection needs of the customer. Simple refurbishing techniques will ensure that the coating budget is reduced significantly over 3-year duration.
protecting the sustainability of the metals, we are providing an armor to them
Flosil Bet not just focuses on industrial majors who give the firm repeated and continuous business, it also supports MSMEs in its endeavour to bring better coating systems to the larger asset owners.
Speaking on the prospects of the company, the MD concludes by saying, “We embrace ‘MAKE IN INDIA’ concept of our progressive Government, because of which we have started with having our foot firmly on ground and invested in a manufacturing plant in India. We do also focus on projects where the owner is directly involved in decision- making.
We feel that the current system followed in procuring performance coatings by many companies (like L1 or Reverse Auction) will only result in the supply of ‘ME-ALSO’ paints. It is a known fact that raw material costs are rising, it would be increasingly difficult for manufacturers to maintain correct specifications, going forward at lower prices. We’re prepared to turn that around in favour of our clients”.
