Protective Industrial Coatings to Prevent Rust and Corrosion

Do your industrial structures need coating?

An industrial coating is the best way to protect your steelwork, roofs, cladding and more – ensuring exposure to harsh industrial environments and the elements doesn't result in rust or corrosion.

Our state of the art equipment and experienced workers can help create the right specialist coatings for your needs – so your structures last for years to come.

Industrial coatings – wherever you need them

We can create industrial coatings that are chemical resistant, heat resistant, suitable for abrasive environments, for vessels containing drinkable water – and decorative applications.

And we can apply them to steelwork, tanks, railway structures, pipework, stairways, building exteriors and interiors, ships, containers, bridges and more.

A full range of application systems

We use a range of application systems, including conventional, airless, electric and plural spraying systems, as well as rollers, brushes and other options.

This allows us to use the manufacturer's preferred method when applying the coating and make sure we provide a complete, watertight coating for your structures.

You'll receive a full service, including surface preparation, a primer, coating and sealant top coat as needed.

These processes create a long-lasting coating that will refurbish your structures and save you the cost of expensive repairs and rebuilds later on.

Industrial coatings guide

Industrial coatings are used to protect metal structures, floors and walls from the weather, corrosion and rust.

A complete coating process includes surface preparation, a primer coat, the main coat and then a third so-called top coat. This completely seals the structure, preventing damage and wear.

Industrial coatings can be applied using a variety of techniques, including spraying systems, rollers and brushes. Each coatings manufacturer issues guidelines about the best way to apply its coat.

Without proper sealing, industrial conditions can cause steel to rust and flake while chemicals can cause surfaces to corrode.

However, this problem can be easily avoided with industrial coatings, which can potentially provide decades of protection for your industrial structures and buildings.
