Industrial painting contractors use a variety of methods when coating surfaces with paint. Unlike residential painting, there are many more ways to lay down a layer of paint than just by applying it by roller or brush. Here at Apadana Group Inc., we understand that the surfaces in industrial painting require a lot more preparation.
Preparation is the key to proper long lasting paint applications. If the surfaces to be painted have not had paint applied previously, then the process is somewhat easier. If a previous coat exists, then its removal is usually required through SAND BLASTING, CHEMICAL STRIPPING, or INFRARED HEATER (for lead paint removal), These methods on itself is a skill that needs an expert touch. Apadana Group Inc. has the knowledge and skills required to assure you receive an expert industrial painting job!
Surfaces can be prepared by using ultra high pressure water jets, or water jetting as it is also known. This has both a washing and a blasting effect, which can remove grit and dust as well as any other loose particles. Water jetting leaves a surface cleaner than any of the other methods of preparation. It can be used in all weather and it has no adverse environmental effects.
Abrasive preparation is also used by industrial painting contractors and is a method that Apadana Group Inc. is highly skilled in using. This can be dry, wet, or a combination of wet and dry. In this way rust, grit, dust and chemicals can easily be removed to leave a virgin surface ready for the paint application. When sufficient care and attention is taken over the preparation process, the painting process is made easier with a greater likelihood of a successful outcome.
In industrial painting, applying the paint with a brush or roller are not the only options. The following are different industrial painting options.
A process where particles of dry paint have an electrostatic charge applied before being positioned on a grounded surface. The particles are held on the surface by electrostatic attraction. Heat is then applied, which allows the powder coating to flow together and be cured in place.
For powder coating to work it is of course necessary for the surface being treated to be electrically conductive. Originally this meant only metal surfaces. However, recent technological advances have meant that other surfaces, including such unlikely ones as plastic and wood, can now also be treated in this way.
Coil Coating (Roll Coating)
Coil or “Roll” coating is a high speed method of applying a coating of paint to a metal surface. Coil coating is a continuous process, which is why it is a fast method. Coil coating typically is the most cost-effective and energy-efficient process for the application of paint to metal surfaces. In addition, the coil coating application process is more environmentally sensitive than some other processes.
Spray coating is a more common way to apply paints on to a surface, and as such it is extensively used by industrial painting contractors. Spray coating can also deliver resins and sealants effectively under pressure.
Industrial painting contractors like Apadana Group Inc. have to keep on top of all the latest developments. They need to be versatile and flexible, being able to offer a wide range of preparation processes, as well as a wide range of coating techniques and methods.
