Surface preparation is very critical prior to the application of coating because it ensures better adhesion; however, it is not to enough to guarantee the quality of surface finish because a lot depends on the skills of industrial coating applicator. The ultimate performance of the industrial coating is impacted with how the surface has been prepared but most coating failures are due to failure in following the coating manufacturer’s suggestions.



The success of any coating application depends on several parameters that include surface preparation, skills of the coating applicator, film thickness, methods of application and the existing conditions at the time of application. The need for surface preparation varies but it generally depends on the type of substrate. There are substrates that require nothing more than simple cleaning with a dust cloth while other substrates require abrasive blast cleaning.



The main purpose of industrial coatings is to prevent corrosion; the other purposes are usually concerned with aesthetic reasons.  When metal is exposed to moisture or is contaminated by chemicals it will begin to corrode. This can also depend on many other factors like the humidity, we have to take in consideration that rain, condensation and mists can contribute to the humidity and the level of corrosion that metal experiences. Corrosion can even occur at a faster rate when it’s contaminated by chemicals.



Industrial coating services are typically utilized when surface treating various types of goods. Products include automobile parts and accessories, metal roofing, agricultural vehicles, mobile phones, laptops, computers, home appliances, and office furniture. Most products sold for consumer and industrial use undergo a coating treatment for protective and functional properties. Industrial coating acts as a surface protection but it also has the underlying goal of improving aesthetics. A coated surface, whether textured or smooth, is consistent in look and pleasant to the touch. 



Abrasive blast cleaning is widely used in the industrial sector. It involves propelling an abrasive material against a surface of a particular product. The stream of abrasive material is projected at high speed through a nozzle. This is possible using compressed air. The impact of the abrasive material on the surface leaves behind a clean and dry product onto which a new coating can be applied. This is ideal when you want to remove old paint, rust or other particles. A surface treated with abrasive blast cleaning is more conducive to new coatings and industrial treatment.
