Allied PhotoChemical published in January/February 2021 CFCM – Canadian Finishing & Coatings Manufacturing Magazine – Realities in the Mechanical Tube Marketplace.

MACOMB, MI – March 4, 2021 – CFCM – Canadian Finishing & Coatings Manufacturing Magazine has published an informative article entitled: “Realities in the Mechanical Tube Marketplace,” authored by Michael Kelly – Chief Customer Officer of Allied PhotoChemical, Inc.

“Mechanical tube manufacturers are continually challenged by their end customers to reduce costs, provide enhanced rust performance and support sustainable manufacturing processes,” says Michael Kelly. “This article provides a nice summary that includes supportive data on all these challenges.”

Below is a short introduction to the article:

Delivering the best product to your end customer is key in today’s manufacturing environment and has been a
continuing message for North American manufacturing companies. This is not new by any means, but is receiving more emphasis and attention as end customers are more involved in their suppliers’ manufacturing supply chain. With the recent Covid-19 pandemic, end customers are even more involved with their suppliers which reinforces the importance of a stable supply chain.

In the mechanical tube marketplace, this is defined as the following:

  • Reduced overall product cost – a reduction of overall pricing / measured in reduction of price per linear foot.
  • Continually improved product performance – increased white and red rust protection / measured by increased hours of ASTM B117 Salt Fog exposure.
  • Embracing a sustainable manufacturing process – improved sustainability in the manufacturing process would equate to less emissions / measured as an overall reduction in VOC’s – Volatile Organic Compounds and HAP’s – Hazardous Air Pollutants.
