Industrial Coatings

(BS EN ISO 9001:2015)

An industrial coating is a paint or coating defined by its protective, rather than its aesthetic properties, although it can provide both. The most common use of industrial coatings is for corrosion control of steel structures such as offshore platforms, bridges and underground pipelines.  This process is commonly used to provide decontaminable coatings and heat resistant coatings  up to 500 C degrees - suitable for within the Nuclear Industry.

Other functions include intumescent coatings for fire resistance.

The most common polymers used in industrial coatings are polyurethane, epoxy and moisture-cure urethane. There are many types of industrial coatings including inorganic zinc and phosphate. We offer heat resistant coatings capable of withstanding up to 540 degrees centigrade. Intumescent Fire Proof coatings are also available, thin-film intumescent coatings for fire protection of structural steel work providing up to 90 minutes protection from cellulosic fires.

As well as offering a strong and durable finish, a multi-coat system can also offer a colour coordination, for example chevroned safety zones, hand railing, or fluorescent high-visibility coatings. Multi-coat systems are generally used to ensure the chosen coating system is suitable for the steel works intended end use, it is generally chosen by category (C1 to C5) and expected durability from under 5 to over 15 years to first major maintenance.

High Durability:- >15 Years to first major maintenance.
Medium Durability:- 5-15 years to first major maintenance.
Low Durability:- <5 years to first major maintenance.
