ARCOR is a manufacturer of high performance epoxy coatings and metal rebuilding compounds since 1983. Our offices are in Boston, Massachusetts and New Orleans, Louisianna. Our manufacturing facility is located in Harwich, Massachusetts. In addition to the manufacture and sale of our epoxies we also provide full installation services through our ARCOR Services Inc. subsidiary located in Rochester, Massachusetts. We are capable of providing turn-key application for any project, large or small, located anywhere in the world. We also can provide supervision and training for your personnel or your local contractors. All ARCOR products are designed to be free of solvents. This allows for safe application in all confined spaces and provides for a much faster cure than traditional solvented epoxies allowing for a more rapid turnaround of application projects. Faster turnaround means less downtime for critical components. ARCOR has developed a plural component spray system which allows our coatings to be spray applied without the addition of solvents. This brings the advantages of our solvent free epoxy technology to large scale projects with the increased efficiencies of spray application verses hand application. ARCOR continually modifies its product offerings to bring the latest in epoxy technology to its customers. We focus on the most rigorous, highest performance raw materials to find the best in chemical, heat and abrasion resistance. Our products are custom designed for specific aggressive industrial uses particularly in immersion environments of saltwater, acids and caustics.
