The United States Mining Health & Safety (MSHA) had a lack of products fit to be applied safely to their mechanical systems, and concrete block forms used primarily inside coal mines. The coating needed to be safe for the user to spray in confined spaces with added fire resistance, and a low gloss finish. They needed a water-proof barrier to prevent corrosion and eventual failure of these different components. Weatherskin was the answer. After over 1 year of testing the Mine and Safety coating was approved for use on controls and forms inside of mines.
