Painting equipment is one of the most common requests for industrial painters. From finding the appropriate coating, to discovering the best prep method, to minimizing sensitive computer components. There are a number of factors that need to be considered before embarking on an incredible painting journey into the angular movements of equipment painting.
In the world of big industry, there are innumerable operations that equipment can perform. And sometimes that performance requires highly concentrated coolants and oils that can keep the machinery operating. And other times, that equipment contains highly sensitive computer boards that need to be protected from excessive amounts of water.
But when an owner whats his old, dated pieces of equipment freshened up with a new coat of paint, it proves to be very challenging.
Firstly, as with any painting project, the prep method is going to require a lot of thought and consideration. As mentioned, modern equipment can contain a lot of computers and electronics. And if those electronics get wet, it can completely damage the entire piece. However, sometimes that piece will be caked with old coolant or motor oil. And if the surface is too saturated with oil, then the adhesion will be compromised.
