Improve Asset Reliability With Industrial Coatings

Finishes are often overlooked from the Asset Reliability Manager’s perspective.  But if you learn the many benefits of industrial and commercial coatings, you can see how they can improve some of the most important assets in any facility.

When a company or facility thinks of their assets, their first thought is typically production machinery.  Which makes sense.  It gets used daily, to produce the product that the company is selling.  And if that machinery goes down, then that product is no longer being produced.  There’s not a lot of degrees of separation between the machinery and money.

Which is why it’s perplexing that so many facilities overlook a vital component to sustaining their productivity: their facility.

Safety First – Apply Textured Industrial Paint To Decrease Slip Hazards

Increase the Slip-Resistant With Industrial Painting and Coatings

Safety is always the top concern for any facility.  Whether you’re dealing with overhead cranes, fork lifts, heavy machinery, or flammable liquids, there are numerous threats that you need to be aware of.  But one of the most overlooked threats are slip hazards.  So most facilities have textured walk-ways or aisle ways, or floors that contain slip-resistant aggregate.

Hire Industrial Painting Contractors to Finish Tough Jobs

I was contacted by a local fabrication company.  These guys weld large structural steel objects that include air handler units, frames, and other piece of customized steel structures.  This cold box that they’re currently welding weighs about 150,000 pounds.  It is 46′ Long x 12′ Wide, and 11′ Tall.  But it needs an industrial coating, so they reached out for an industrial painting contractor to complete the project.

Half Primed / Half Not

As you can see in both pictures, some of the steel is primed with a green mastic epoxy.  While the remaining steel is exposed.  So the first thing our industrial painting contractors had to do was wipe down the exposed steel.  When welding, there is often an oily residue left on the steel substrate.  This oil help creates cleaner weld lines.  But it works against the paint’s ability to bond with the substrate.  So the oily residue needed to be removed with denatured alcohol.
