AN INTRODUCTION TO PROTECTIVE COATINGS

What are protective coatings, and how are they different to paint? The terms paint and coating refer to different materials. Protective coatings are applied by painters, but they are very different from domestic paint and it is important to understand how they work so that they can be applied correctly.

It is critical that painters follow manufacturer’s directions meticulously and to specification because the products dry and cure in a different manner to domestic paints. This cannot be stressed enough. Paint is primarily formulated for decorative purposes in private dwellings and commercial buildings. Coatings refer to materials designed for industrial use, protecting the asset against the environment corrosion control.

A coating is a covering that is applied to the surface of an object, usually referred to as the substrate. The purpose of applying the coating may be decorative, functional, or both.

Protective Coatings and Compounds allow you to maintain and protect your industrial equipment. Surface coatings include paints, drying oils and varnishes, synthetic clear coatings, and other products whose primary function is to protect the surface of an object from the environment. These products can also enhance the aesthetic appeal of an object by accentuating its surface features or even by concealing them from view. Protective coatings are commonly referred to by their generic resin type, such as acrylic, alkyd, epoxy or polyurethane.

Our professionals can design a solution that meets your specific needs – utilizing our experienced staff, certified applicators and time tested coatings from trusted manufacturers.

Protective Coatings Cape Town Surface Preparation

The importance of surface preparation to the future success of coatings is undeniable. If a surface is improperly prepared paint manufacturers will not guarantee the success of their coatings. Prior to coating steel or applying epoxy coatings for example, we will prepare the surface by removing all paint, rust and debris.

Protective Coatings Cape Town will then follow specifications put in place by the coatings manufacturers for their specific product. Surface preparation standards include surface profile and degree of cleanliness. Failure to properly prepare surfaces will result in coating failure. Our knowledge in surface preparation saves our customers time and money. We guarantee after a surface has been properly addressed the coatings application will measure up to the demands that we place on them.

How do you chose the proper coatings for the job? Coatings options are unlimited. However, we find that the range of coatings options are exciting. By offering our customers the latest technology you can trust that your project will be handled with the experience and professionalism that is required.

Intumescent Paint Contractors Cape Town

Intumescent paint is a key asset for passive fire protection. By protecting the structural framework, intumescent paint extends the length of time a building can withstand high temperatures. This could make the difference between fully evacuating a building, and putting the lives of occupants and firefighters at risk.

Intumescent coating, often referred to as intumescent paint, is one of the easiest and most efficient ways to protect load bearing elements of buildings against fire. Intumescent coating delays the collapse of the structure through insulating the structural elements (columns, beams, floors and roofs) that support the building, thus helping achieve fire resistance levels specified in terms of time. Therefore it fulfills with the highest priority of passive fire protection, preventing the collapse of the building, allowing the time for safe evacuation of people from it, and making it safer for the emergency services and rescue team.

Intumescent paint is a coating that reacts to heat by swelling in a controlled manner to many times its original thickness, producing a carbonaceous char formed by a large number of small bubbles that act as an insulating layer to protect the substrate.

Intumescent Paint is applied directly to the contour of primed I and H section columns, angles, channels, beams and hollow sections to provide fire protection for up to 120 minutes.

Steel starts to lose its load bearing capacity at a temperature of around 600°C during a fire. Intumescent paint is designed to protect the buildings main structure in the event of fire.

Anti Corrosion Painting Contractors Cape Town

Protective Coatings Cape Town fill a niche requirement for a high quality anti-corrosion coating that offers real value for money. All our coating solutions are designed with durability in mind, to ensure you benefit from longer asset lifetimes and efficient maintenance.

We supply primers, intermediates, and finish coats.

Whether your assets are located in mildly corrosive environments inland or highly corrosive offshore conditions, you need an anti-corrosive system that you can trust to deliver long-term performance and durability. With a comprehensive range of trusted anti-corrosive coatings, we can provide a reliable anti-corrosive system for almost any structure or piece of equipment, from bridges and port equipment to offshore wind turbines and oil & gas constructions. All our coating solutions are designed with durability in mind, to ensure you benefit from longer asset lifetimes and efficient maintenance.

The key to success lies in recognising the corrosivity of the environment to which the structure or equipment will be exposed and in defining clear and appropriate coating specifications. For example, where steel is in a dry heated interior environment the risk of corrosion is insignificant and no protective coating is necessary. Conversely, a steel structure exposed to an aggressive environment needs to be protected with a high performance treatment and may need to be designed with maintenance in mind if extended life is required. The optimum protection treatment, which combines appropriate surface preparation, suitable coating materials, required durability and minimum cost, is achievable using modern surface treatment technology.

Fact is that corrosion not only causes structural and environmental damage but also threatens public health and safety.

Epoxy Flooring Cape Town

Protective Coatings Cape Town is an Applicator of High Performance Epoxy Coatings. The protection and decoration of concrete projects is an area of particular expertise for us.

Epoxy Coatings are generally used on concrete floors and walls such as warehouses, painting workshops, garages, factory floors and other commercial areas exposed to light and medium traffic.

Epoxy is a tough, stable material that serves as a concrete floor sealant.The epoxy finish is extremely hard and resistant to friction. It also provides optimum protection against particle abrasion, corrosive fluids, turbulence, heat, cold, and impact forces. Epoxy is resistant to diluted acids, alkalis, petroleum products, and condensation.

Surface Preparation. This is essentially the most important phase of the epoxy floor coating project. A well planned surface preparation will help secure a good bonding between the substrate and the coating system. Good surface preparation will remove laitance, curing compounds, contamination and give the surface profile. Vacuum clean the area before paint application starts.

Our professionals can design a solution that meets your specific needs – utilizing our experienced staff, certified applicators and time tested products from trusted manufacturers.

Polyurethane Flooring Cape Town

A polyurethane coating, is a highly flexible, highly abrasion-resistant floor coating that is known for its shine and longevity.

Which is better epoxy or polyurethane?

Generally, a polyurethane floor coating is highly flexible and elastic, while epoxy flooring is harder and more brittle. This makes polyurethane coatings more resistant to scratches and similar damage and is why you’ll often find urethane resin floors in heavy traffic areas – such as multi-storey car parks.

What Are the Common Problems With Polyurethane Floor Finish?

Even though there are many reasons why urethane floor finish is still a popular choice, there are several drawbacks. Because it is such a thick compound, it must be applied in very thin layers to avoid non-uniform thickness and lumping. In addition, because a polyurethane floor finish must be applied in such a thin layer, it will not cover imperfections in the underlying substrate as well as an epoxy or epoxy mortar system might. In this case, it is better for an epoxy primer layer to be installed first, with a polyurethane coating on top.

What Are Some Uses for Polyurethane Coatings or Urethane Coatings?

Since urethane coatings are so flexible and scratch-resistant, they are excellent choices for warehouses and industrial complexes where large machinery will be housed. In addition, polyurethane coatings are soft on animal paws, so they are good choices for veterinary labs, and animal laboratory facilities. Finally, since urethane coatings are so durable and glossy, they can make excellent showroom floors and even aircraft hangars.

From the world’s tallest skyscrapers to bridges, airports, hotels and homes, our coatings can be found around the globe, protecting buildings against corrosion and helping make them more beautiful. With a broad range of products, we can supply the perfect painting solution for your entire building, both Interior and Exterior.
