Triple C - New Mold Protection for Circuit Breaker Boxes

Triple C Electric Company of League City Texas had a problem. Until 3 years ago there was a persistent chance that molds could develop and grow on the circuit breakers boxes the company builds and installs. This was especially a problem in southern climates with high humidity.

Michael Carlton, the company president said he then discovered Permalac, an outdoor clearcoat lacquer manufactured by Peacock Labs in Philadelphia, PA. “The product was infallible. Permalac not only acts as a fungicide that resists mold, it positively repels it. Mold simply can’t and won’t grow on it.”

As a result Triple C now treats all circuit breakers before they are installed in a panel or enclosure with two coats of Permalac. Customers ordering circuit breaker boxes from 20 amps up to 1200 amps and 120 volts to 600 volts can count on Permalac Fungicide protection.

Permalac was designed to protect metal, wood and cement/ceramic substrates from UV, salt spray, wind borne abrasives and extremes of temperature. Users can expect 6 to 10 years of service before recoating is indicated.

Triple C has been in the business of assembling custom circuit breaker boxes to customer specs for 25 years. They sell equipment across North America and the company is highly regarded in the industry and regularly awarded valuable contracts from the U.S. Dept. of Defense and other government agencies.

Triple C sells has the largest physical inventory of new circuit breaker product in Texas. From Residential plugins to commercial molded case, miniature din mounts and giant industrial power breakers. Triple C maintains the inventory to be responsive to customer needs quickly. Circuit protection from 1amp to 4000 amps is there for the ordering.

Triple C is also an authorized distributor of Multilin industrial relays and digital power meters. This includes advanced Multilin thermal models for optimized protection of small, medium, large, and extra-large motors, as well as secure high-speed protection for transformers. This gives customers flexible protection and control for distribution of feeder application, simplified setup configuration, uncompromising security and advanced diagnostics.

Triple C has the expertise and acumen to deliver turn key brand specific project packages at extremely competitive pricing.

Permalac is also highly prized by museum curators and others who are charged with the maintenance and restoration of outdoor sculpture installations. For more information call Sagar Venkateswaran at 215-729-4400 or visit the website:
