Commercial Painting Contractors Install Pedestrian Walkway Lines

pedestrian walkway lines epoxy flooring maryland

Installing lines in facilities has many meanings and reasons.  But the most critical reason is to direct and guide pedestrians.  And by maximizing the adhesive power of epoxy, commercial painting contractors have been able to help guide those pedestrians out of harms’ way.

Floor markings and lines serve a great purpose in manufacturing facilities.  And one of the biggest reasons that those markings are so highly coveted are for safety reasons and organization.

Industrial painting contractors and commercial painting contractors have the experience, product knowledge, and manpower to install the longest lasting lines.  Which is critical in areas that receive a lot of fork lift traffic, and equipment.

But besides knowing which product to use, there are varying ways to install these coveted lines.  And then there are ways that don’t work so well.  But incase you need to check the floor temperature, consider these industrial thermometers to ensure you’re prepared.  So here are the best ways that commercial painting contractors have installed pedestrian walk way lines:

Raise the Roof! And Paint What’s There.

Roof equipment is some of the most challenging surfaces to prepare and paint.  It’s in constant UV light, and will always get exposed to rain, snow, and extreme temperature ranges.  And this is why an experienced industrial painting contractor should be called to scope of the painting system for all equipment in this environment.

There are many factors that need to be considered when painting equipment on the roof.  And one of the biggest factors is the weather.  Too much weather can cause irreversible damages to the substrate.  And although industrial coatings won’t stop an asteroid, it can at least prevent these irreversible damages that can be caused by weather.  And here are the best coating for each varying type of weather-related situation.

Ultra-Violet Rays

Ultra violet rays are the beams radiating from the sun.  These rays are powerful in large doses and can cause cancer if people aren’t protected.  But it can also damage or corrode improper coatings.  Alkyd based coatings will do poorly in these types of environments.  Alkyd coatings get very hard.  But that hardness comes at the expense of flexibility.  And when UV rays hit alkyd paints for too long, they start to get alligator skin, a phenom in painting that causes the coating to crack in square formations, similar to the epidermis of an alligator.

Industrial Painting Contractors – Prep & Application

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.

Bring In the Proper Industrial Painting Contractors For the Best Install

When dealing with food and pharmaceutical plants, you can often run into corrosive cleaners.  The cleaners are required to ensure that any bacteria is completely cleaned from the surfaces and equipment that is used to prepare and cook the food.  But often these cleaners get exposed to the wrong areas, and can actually degrade and corrode some of the industrial coatings.  And in this case, at a condiment plant, this ceiling gets exposed to vinegar vapor, a strong acidic mist, that casually corrodes the building paint.

Industrial Painting Contractors – Performing A Site Assessment

Sometimes you walk into a project, without knowing where to begin.  Sometimes you’ll see so much steel, ceiling, piping, siding, and everything that you almost feel intimidated.  And that’s what almost happened recently when I did a site visit for a metal fabrication plant.

Their plant is divided into 3 separate bays.  The two exterior bays had already been painted.  So now it was time to paint the center bay.  But as you notice in the picture above, there is a large amount of structural steel on the walls and ceiling, corrugated ceiling, wall siding (not shown in this picture), and additional piping and jibs that also needed painted.

The many worlds of House Paint

PennCoat, Inc. doesn’t paint houses or residential properties.  PennCoat, Inc. provides industrial painting and commercial painting services for plants and facilities.  Regardless of the market’s we’re willing to serve, there is still a large demand for quality house and residential painters.  And even these painters need to have a solid understanding of what paint will work in which environments.

Paint for Interior Painting

There’s a lot more flexibility with interior paints.  Unlike exterior paints that have to fight weather exposure, interior paints are isolated and protected from the outdoor environments.  The safest paints to use indoors are water based paints such as acrylic or latex.  These paints don’t contain any VOC’s (volitile organic compounds), and they are 100% solids, meaning that there are no solvents to evaporate once the paint cures.  Water based paints have good adhesion, and can stick to drywall very well, and is the recommended interior paint for drywall and sheet rock.

Working with Industrial Paint Coatings

Working With Industrial Paint Coatings – PennCoat, Inc.

When it comes to working with industrial paint coatings, there’s a wide range of helpful tips that will ensure you get the best possible look. Today, we’ll cover several tips for applying industrial coatings and we’ll discuss some of the common terms used in the industrial painting market.

Properly Cleaning Surfaces

One of the most important things you can do before you paint anything is properly cleaning the surface you’re painting. You’d be surprised how many people do this. They clean the surface, but not properly. In return, you get a bad application. All surfaces need to be properly cleaned and prepped.  Otherwise, the paint will be adhering to the contamination or residue remaining on the substrate.  This will weaken the bond that the paint is supposed to have with the surface, which will ultimately create a situation where paint failure is more likely to occur.
