Different Types Of Industrial Coatings

Science has given society an increasingly diverse spectrum of polymeric coatings that enhance the performance and durability of concrete, steel, and other industrial construction elements. With an increased focus on sustainability, there has been a growing market for high-quality industrial coatings that can be applied to prefabricated and custom-built structures. The technology of long-chain molecular coatings has improved drastically since the 1960s. Today, Houston industrial painting companies use a variety of surface coatings to shield the interior and exterior of essential structures. Polymeric coatings protect the treated material from weather, UV rays and corrosion. Nonporous and nonreactive coatings are also used to line tanks that contain water, fuel and toxic chemicals that might degrade metal or concrete.

  • Polymer Coatings – Most industrial coatings contain several types of long-chain molecules called polymers. When applied to steel or concrete, reactive molecules, such as acids and alcohols, lock together to form a robust yet flexible film — popular coatings like epoxy, polyurethane, polyester and melamine form step-growth bonds.

  • Polymers Chain-growth coatings comprise polystyrene and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). These are formed of monomers that join together to build strong double- and triple-bond polymer chains. There are also cross-linked films, evaporation-based coatings and coalescence-based films, such as latex. Some of these coatings have been used for centuries. Others have been engineered recently for specialized applications.

    Because of most industrial coatings bond molecularly, the various components are combined on-site immediately before application. If you have ever mixed epoxy from two separate gels, you have created a polymer coating. When a Houston industrial painting firm applies resin on a warehouse floor, the same process is used on a much larger scale.

  • Types of Industrial Coatings – Polyurea, polyurethane, and plastisol are popular organic industrial coatings.

Industry standards define three types of coatings. They are metallic, organic and inorganic. Houston metal buildings are often made from galvanized steel, which is one type of corrosion-resistant coating.

Polyester, polyurethane, and plastisol are popular organic coatings. High-tech organic fluoropolymers, including PTFE, PFA, and FEP, are some of the most broadly used coatings available today.

Zinc, ceramic and porcelain are versatile inorganic coatings. However, most coatings contain a combination of organic, synthetic and inorganic materials, including solvents, pigments, fillers, and extenders. These additives improve the application and curing process. Some intumescent coatings contain fire-resistant additives that are intended for high-heat areas.
