23 Apr Painting Services For The Industrial Sector
You might think about repainting part of your home or the inside of your office space. But what about repainting an industrial building? Is the process the same?
Not exactly. In an industrial building, you need paint that’s durable and long-lasting. Standard brands of paint and typical coatings won’t hold up in this environment. The paint will need to withstand high temperatures, corrosive chemicals, and abrasion.
If you’re interested in painting a property in the industrial sector, not just any painting company will do. Here are a few products, colours, and coatings to consider before you get started:
How Is Industrial Painting Different?
With most commercial and residential jobs, you’re painting areas like homes or office spaces. But industrial spaces are a bit more unique. They include:
- Storage facilities
- Manufacturing plants
In facilities like these, a paint job is less about colour or design choices, and more about durable coatings. The conditions, daily processes, and temperatures in these areas call for paint that needs to be highly durable.
Bright colours can be used to enhance the visibility of different areas. If there is a hazardous or slippery area in the building, you can use neon shades to bring awareness to it. This is especially helpful in spaces with dim lighting or few windows.
Colours like yellow, lime green, and red can catch attention and prevent accidents. An industrial paint job may improve the safety of your industrial facility.
These paint applications can protect your products and equipment even under extreme conditions.
When you’re working with boilers, stoves, or other high-temperature appliances, this type of coating is essential. This variety of paint can tolerate extremely high temperatures and resist corrosion, two important qualities for any industrial setting.
Perfect for labs or kitchens, this coating will protect materials from corrosion and abrasion damage. It’s a particularly important coating in the chemical industry where you’re dealing with acidic substances. Keep your products and employees safe with an acid-resistant coating.
Certain items might need specific paint coatings, like:
- Solvent tanks
- Stainless steel ceilings
The environments in industrial buildings put paint to the test. They’re not places where you can afford to deal with chipping, melting, or corroding paint. Our painters will work with you to select a coating that meets your needs and keeps your facility looking its best.
Slippery floors can be dangerous, especially in industrial settings. The floor may be exposed to chemical spills, oil, or water. In these situations, you need a floor that can hold up to these tests.
Epoxy flooring is both durable and affordable. You can use it as a decorative feature, or apply a polyaspartic coating for enhanced strength. It’s perfect for warehouses and manufacturing plants.
Protect your concrete floors, improve their safety, and increase their life cycle with epoxy flooring. Despite the heavy foot traffic in warehouses, epoxy floors will stand the test of time.
