Depending on what kind of protection is needed there are different coatings for different purposes. Three of the most common types of coatings used are:

Epoxy Coatings

Typically consist of an epoxy base and a curing agent. Epoxy coatings are used for interior or submerged industrial applications. These coatings are resistant to chemicals and abrasion and can with stand high temperatures that other coatings cannot.

Polyurethane Coatings

Typically used in a wide variety of environments and are often used as a final protective topcoat.

Polyurethane resists abrasion and can improve the durability of a surface, keeping it from scratching. Polyurethane coatings retain their colour and add a glossy finish. Since polyurethane prevents corrosion and makes materials more durable, floors, steel supports, and concrete supports are often sprayed with a polyurethane coating during construction.

Elastomeric Coatings

These are an above-grade exterior wall or roof coating that is approximately 10 times thicker than paint. It forms an incredibly thick yet flexible coating that helps waterproof the exterior of a structure.

Elastomeric coatings are UV resistant and can help improve the energy efficiency of any building. Elastomeric coatings can be tinted in a number of colours and retain their colour, so they provide a long-lasting exterior finish for commercial properties.

There are industrial coatings for virtually every type of surface.

Industrial coatings are specifically engineered for their protective and functional properties. Industrial coating’s primary function is to protect the surface beneath them. These coatings are most commonly used to protect steel and concrete from corrosion. There are industrial coatings designed to protect surfaces against corrosion, fire, water and damaging chemicals.

PaintMaster SA offers coatings for various industrial applications in niche markets–tailored to our customers’ needs. From electricity pylons, bridges, silo’s, wind turbines to steel constructions, we have taken up the cause against corrosion on new constructions as well as when renovating existing objects.
