Industrial wash rooms experience a lot of heat, moisture, and chemicals.  All of which have corrosive elements that can deteriorate coatings and substrates.  So here’s the coating application used by commercial painting contractors to increase the longevity of the substrate and paint system.

Industrial washrooms are subjected to abusive conditions.  Hot water, mold, and corrosive cleaning agents.  Collectively, all of these elements can be pretty damning for industrial coatings.

But despite all of these challenges, there is application techniques and material that can be applied in these challenging environments.   And the combination of these techniques and material will help increase the longevity of the industrial coating.

The benefits of Glass Broadcast Beads

Shooting lines is a common application procedure for commercial painting contractors.  Sometimes those lines are installed in a warehouse facility.  And other times, they are installed in parking lots.  But in some situations, those lines need to be highly visible.  And in those instances, reflective glass beads will greatly improve their visibility.

Reflective Traffic Beads for Roadways

All major roadways require a TTP-1325 Type 1 glass bead standard.  These glass beads are designed to reflect the light emitted from vehicle headlights, presenting roadway markings with greater clarity.

These beads have an easy application.  Unlike many aggregates that get mixed with the paint, glass beads can be broadcasted onto the painted lines.  This makes application fairly simple.  The applicator just needs to make sure he is applying the glass beads when the paint is wet, and not after it’s cured.
