BUSINESS UNIT OVERVIEW
At Riteks, we serve customer needs for industrial coatings, sealants, and adhesives with elite chemical expertise, a wide range of custom products, as well as purchasing standard chemicals for applications in industries like marine manufacturing, industrial yards, piping and tubing, commercial flooring, and oil and gas exploration, including petrochemical refinery storage tanks, OEM offshore pumps and parts, and storage and fracturing tanks.
In addition, we provide industrial coatings and sealants for the storage of multiple commodities.
In many of these industries, downtime simply isn’t an option, with lack of chemical supply causing multi-million-dollar operational losses within a matter of days. Customers come to Riteks to get the attention, expertise, and superior command of logistics to get the product they need, when they need it, whether that product is a Riteks portfolio solution or product from major manufacturers like Chevron Phillips.
Our driving philosophy at Riteks is to eliminate customer confusion in a marketplace littered with hundreds of alternatives in epoxies and other coatings. We believe that a core set of coatings with versatile applications, complemented by our unique, custom manufacturing platform for creating and enhancing specialty coatings, can serve all of your needs for performance and return on investment.
We like to think of our approach as producing a new wave of coatings, where project managers can have a much smaller arsenal of coatings that achieve what others may do with twice as much product. Taking this approach has several advantages, in addition to cutting costs on coatings. Often, applicators can achieve in a single coating what others must do in three steps. Also, with high-performance coatings that address several needs, there is less misselection of coatings on the jobsite, less human error, and a greater emphasis on safety, since the application of fewer coatings relies on less equipment setup. The more efficient the jobsite, the easier it is to manage cost, the efficiency of the work, and the safety of the workforce.
The Riteks team stays on the leading edge of coatings technology. In addition to our work in simplifying coatings selection for our customers, we are pursuing a number of technologies to meet customer demands for performance and sustainability.
Customers today are investing in superhydrophobic coatings, which repel water through the unique structure of the particles in the dry film of the coating. This structure allows the water to sit on the peaks of those particles on a microscopic level. In addition to superhydrophobic coatings, we are using the latest in nanotechnology to precision-engineer nanoparticles to achieve higher-performing coatings for tanks and tubes, among other applications.
Many of our customers face greater demands for sustainability, and Riteks is there with green solutions. Customers need coatings that eliminate the need for volatile organic compounds (VOCs), as well as hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) for both indoor and outdoor applications.
Whatever your needs for coatings, sealants, and adhesives, Riteks is ready to assist you with selection from our expanding roster of multifunctional coatings. A leader in custom formulations, we can help you optimize blends for marine-grade sealants, industrial sealants, and protective coatings and sealants. And we fill all your industrial coatings solutions needs with turnkey service, from manufacture to packaging and logistics.
