Coatings & surface preparation

Professional surface preparation and application of the right coating, helps avoid corrosion.


To proactively avoid corrosion of piping and structures, and internal wear of equipment, the application of the right coatings is essential. In existing facilities, old coating layers can form an additional complication: Apart from being hard to remove, coatings can contain lead and the dust that is created during removal, can cause galvanic corrosion in the vicinity of the surface being prepared. Another challenge is location: just because something is out of sight and difficult to reach, doesn’t mean that it doesn’t need to be protected.
