Keep as­sets safe with spe­cial­ist pro­tec­tive coat­ing

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

Pro­tec­tive coat­ings do just that, they pro­tect your build­ing and as­sets. High per­for­mance paint com­bined with ex­pert ap­pli­ca­tion of spe­cial­ist fin­ish lay­ers of­fer both in­stant vis­ual ap­peal as well as a means to sim­ple long-term main­te­nance. All sur­faces, in­clud­ing sig­nage, can ben­e­fit from the preser­va­tion pro­tec­tive coat­ings of­fer against harsh weather el­e­ments, cor­ro­sion, UV degra­da­tion and graf­fiti.

Whether your prop­erty has sim­ple el­e­va­tions that can be painted with straight­for­ward roller brush ap­pli­ca­tion or is a so­phis­ti­cated in­fra­struc­ture re­quir­ing swing stages, you most likely are able to pro­long life­span and tackle any de­te­ri­o­ra­tion through a pro­fes­sional ap­proach to coat­ing ap­pli­ca­tion.

Proper as­sess­ment of each sub­strate and el­e­va­tion to ac­cu­rately ad­dress the kind of pro­tec­tion your fa­cil­ity needs will en­sure you achieve as­set dura­bil­ity and sim­ple main­te­nance de­spite ex­po­sure to harsh el­e­ments and risk of graf­fiti.

A qual­ity pro­fes­sional pro­tec­tive coat­ing ap­pli­ca­tion process should in­clude: • Sub­strate prepa­ra­tion in­clud­ing

high pres­sure clean­ing. • Re­moval and iso­la­tion of lead,

as­bestos and rust. • Spe­cial­ist epoxy, polyurethane and

anti- cor­ro­sion coat­ings. • Suit­able ap­pli­ca­tions for var­i­ous

façade, steel and cladding ma­te­rial. • Fire pro­tec­tion.

In ad­di­tion to a spe­cific plan and ap­pli­ca­tion process, the work should be car­ried out by trained and ex­pe­ri­enced painters, and checked by ac­cred­ited in­spec­tors to en­sure both ap­pli­ca­tion and out­come meets the re­quired stan­dards for pro­tec­tion and safety spec­i­fi­ca­tions. Par­tic­u­larly where food and man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­i­ties are con­cerned, this should fur­ther en­tail the lat­est in­dus­try prac­tices in en­vi­ron­men­tally-friendly ap­pli­ca­tion and achieve­ment of dust-free sur­faces. This is also true of work in con­fined spa­ces such as within water tanks and work at heights so you can be cer­tain the work will be com­pleted safely with ex­pert knowl­edge.

Pro­grammed has suc­cess­fully car­ried out paint­ing work us­ing spe­cial­ist pro­tec­tive coat­ing for many cus­tomers to meet their gamut of vary­ing re­quire­ments. These in­clude the MCG Light Tow­ers ( VIC, Aus­tralia), Blue Scope Steel/Fluor (NSW, Aus­tralia) and Ful­ton Hogan (Auck­land, New Zealand).

The bridge con­nect­ing Bluescope’s op­er­at­ing plant in Port Kem­bla with the main har­bour had fail­ing paint­work which con­tained lead, al­low­ing rust to de­velop. The bridge was stripped of all its ex­ist­ing coat­ings, ap­pro­pri­ately treated and re­painted with spe­cial­ist pro­tec­tive coat­ings to re­duce fu­ture devel­op­ment of rust and degra­da­tion. The suc­cess of the pro­ject won it the Mas­ter Painters Awards for Ex­cel­lence in the En­vi­ron­men­tal Man­age­ment cat­e­gory.

Ful­ton Hogan works with large vol­umes of ag­gre­gates and bi­tu­men cre­at­ing an abra­sive en­vi­ron­ment for build­ings and equip­ment at the fa­cil­ity. A long-term main­te­nance pro­gramme al­lows Ful­ton Hogan as­sets to with­stand the rig­or­ous work en­vi­ron­ment and main­tain a clean and well looked af­ter site. Given the na­ture of the sur­round­ings, pro­tec­tive coat­ing along with spe­cialised ac­cess equip­ment plays a key role in the fa­cil­ity’s on- go­ing paint main­te­nance.

At Vic­to­ria’s MCG, con­ser­va­tion of its six iconic light tow­ers is para­mount. Test­ing Mel­bourne weather and a busy sport­ing sched­ule that puts it in the con­stant lime­light means the light tow­ers re­quire on­go­ing func­tion­al­ity and pre­sen­ta­tion from both an aes­thetic and op­er­a­tional per­spec­tive. To main­tain these in­stantly recog­nis­able land­marks against wind, rain and the glar­ing sun, a com­bi­na­tion of highly skilled painters and spe­cialised coat­ings is nec­es­sary. These also pro­vide pro­tec­tion against dirt and rust, and are part and par­cel of its long-term preventative main­te­nance pro­gramme.
