Surveys and Advice
Expert input from the start to specify the correct coating solution for the project, delivering the expected level of performance. We are happy to visit sites to give advice on painting and coating solutions, and a technical survey is always the first step in project.
Every project plan takes into account the technical requirements and impact assessment to customers' operations, so we can make sure the work causes the least possible disruption to our customers' operations.
Preparation and Application
Our specialist teams take time to prepare the surface to the required standards removing all contaminants and degraded coatings, utilising various hand or mechanical methods driven by the specification or environmental conditions. Techniques used include hand and power tool preparation, mechanical blasting clean using various blast media and hot water and ultra-high pressure (UP/UHP) water jetting. All work is closely overseen by experienced technical experts at every stage. The process is monitored by industry standard paint inspectors with all the relevant quality assurance checks carried out and recorded at every stage of the process.
Specialists in Painting and Protective Coatings for Industry
Our extensive experience of working in industrial settings means we can identify a tried and tested approach for almost any scenario. With the support of our access division we can supply access and habitat requirements to support the coatings process. Today's paints and coatings can offer tremendous potential benefits - but only when applied correctly. From initial specification through to final inspection, we provide both the professional oversight and the practical skills necessary for a successful result that delivers the coating solution to its full potential thus achieving its optimum maintenance cycle.
Using the latest coating technologies and techniques, we can help you fight corrosion, cut operating costs, reduce shutdown periods and get maximum lifespan from your assets
