Chemical Resistant Coatings in Everyday Manufacturing

With increased environmental changes and a prognosed increase in acidic rain, there is a dire need in having both metallic and concrete surfaces protected from the adversaries of nature. To attain this, the use of chemical resistant coatings plays a role in protection not only in chemical plants, but in everyday applications as well. In the making of protective coatings, brushable, trowelled and sprayable formulas are designed to give surfaces lasting protection.

Furthermore, with the increased use of chemicals in various industrial sectors, there is a dire need to use protective coatings on all surfaces to protect the equipment against corrosion. This means that industrial floors, walls and machines should be polished with an anti-corrosion applicator for optimal protection. Among the most common applicators used in the industrial setting are poly-technology prepared polymers and their related substrates such as resins and primers.

By having chemical resistant coatings of all the key surfaces, the plant saves in the long run as surfaces are protected from wearing off in the course of use. In addition to this, the surfaces are protected from being eroded by chemicals used on the daily basis. For maximum benefit, the coating used should thus be inert and unable to react with the other chemicals used within the factory. Moreover, the coatings used should be only the ones certified for use within the industry. For instance, there are specific coatings that are harmful to humans if consumed. Thus, such coatings should not be used in food industries. However, with most powder coatings being both inert and chemical resistant, their use in various industries is advised. Moreover, if properly done, they last long without possibilities of being worn out. Thus, powder coating should be a number one priority when looking for chemical resistant coatings for use within a given setting. However, in cases where there are no suitable powder coating alternatives available, you should consider using the regular paints which should be superimposed during application.


I need this in my salon.

Are you open on weekends?

Every plant/warehouse/factory should have this, it saves a lot of money!

Thank you for providing this info. Acid rain is of concern to me.
