Clinton Mississippi, Water Tower, Tnemec Company, Hydroflon

Water towers often provide a source of local pride. These towering facilities are commissioned by local artists or design firms and feature a town's signature colorway or icons. But the Clinton, Mississippi water tower evokes something more, a sense of pride for the local students of Clinton Jr. High School who were responsible for its design.

Clinton Town Mayor, Phil Fisher explains, “Allowing the students to take part in the selection of a paint scheme will have a long-lasting benefit in their relationship to their city. Imagine the next time this tank gets painted, they will be 32-to-34-year-olds.” The students chose a black tank with ‘Clinton' and the Clinton signature arrows logo in red.

The project refurbished the interior and exterior surfaces of the one-million-gallon tank. The coatings specialists at Tnemec Company were responsible with providing a long-lasting, durable system for the project. The team describes, “Now, this all-black tank—with the exception of the red and white Clinton Arrows logo, of course—stands as a billboard for local schools, painted top to bottom using Series 700 for long-term color and .”

The Series 700 HydroFlon finish ensures long-lasting gloss and . This next-generation, high-performance fluoropolymer, contains Lumiflon FEVE , which is a main contributor to the coating system's hyper-. Lumiflon FEVE resin provides protection to water tank surfaces, helping to prevent coating degradation at the hands of UV radiation, salt, and water. FEVE-based coatings also offer superior color and gloss retention and anti-corrosion properties that maintain the coating's structural integrity.
