Corrosion Remediation Through Effective Industrial Painting
Steel protection and corrosion remediation are essential for your industrial site or manufacturing plant. Without these industrial painting services, steel structures may start deteriorating after only a few years. ELCO Painting offers a variety of durable, cost-effective protective coatings and corrosion remediation methods to enhance your steelwork structures for increased longevity and improved performance.
When determining how vital corrosion protection is for the steel structures in your manufacturing plant, it is important to consider the corrosivity of the environment. Steelwork that is exposed to an aggressive and/or abrasive environment will need a high-performance corrosion protection treatment and will likely require decent maintenance in order to perform optimally for an extended period of time. ELCO Painting will help you plan and implement corrosion remediation according to the structural demands of your facility.
Two Vital Steps for Steel Protection and Corrosion Prevention
Proper surface preparation is absolutely critical before any protective coating is applied to a steel substrate. Surface preparation is a leading factor in the overall performance of the entire protection system. A coating’s performance will depend largely on its ability to adhere to the substrate, which is why the surface condition of your steel must be up to snuff in order to act as a proper base for quality coatings. While there are a variety of surface preparation methods, abrasive blast cleaning is a popular choice for serious cleaning or rusty steel surfaces in rough condition.
The next step toward ensuring optimum steel corrosion protection is choosing the proper coating for the task at hand. Metallic coatings are popular corrosion protection agents, but their performance will vary based on the type of coating, its thickness, and its application method. Paint coatings that enhance steel corrosion protection have advanced over time to boast improved performance and durability while complying with evolving environmental and industrial standards. Advanced paint protective coating systems often involve sequential coatings of primer, build layers, and finish coats applied over metallic coatings. Each layer of the system has a particular function and a complex corrosion protection system requires skillful application and proper equipment.
