Machinery & Structural Steel Protective Coating
Structural coatings protect your big investments
Comprehensive Industrial and Commercial Coating Service
We provide comprehensive industrial painting services for every industrial facility. Protect your valuable structural steel, machinery and equipment from the sun, harsh chemicals, extremes of heat and cold, abrasive wind, corrosion, humidity and precipitation.
Over time, the long-term effects of exposure to the elements can take their toll on structural steel as well as industrial equipment. Corrosion and deterioration caused by exposure to the rain, sun, and excessive heat or cold temperatures can wear down steel and industrial equipment if left unprotected. However, specially formulated structural coatings can extend the life of structural steel and equipment by providing it with a shield against the elements and their destructive effects.
Benefits of Structural Steel and Machinery Coatings
A fresh coat of machinery coating keeps equipment and structural steel elements looking better, but it can also help prevent breakdowns and keep equipment in operation longer. You’ll benefit from an extended lifecycle and increased productivity — with minimal downtime caused by equipment failure and constant maintenance.
Raider Painting offers an effective solution for all of your industrial coating needs. We provide corrosion-resistant coating services that can protect your facilities and equipment from the elements and ensure that they will be productive for as long as possible. What’s more, we combine our services with extensive expertise in the application of these coatings. You will always receive the best possible service when choosing Raider Painting.
Industrial painting requires extensive planning, strict adherence to industry specifications and meticulous attention to detail. We’ll work with you to design an optimal painting solution for your facility that prevents interruptions in your production schedule and doesn’t break your budget. You’ll be left with structural steel and industrial equipment that is protected against the harshest conditions — providing you with greater cost savings over time and higher resale value when it outlives its usefulness to your operations. No matter what your facility or equipment needs, Raider Painting has solutions that are tailored to your needs.
Stainless Steel Protective Coating
Well-known for being corrosion-resistant, stainless steel is the common choice among manufacturers across different industries. Industry experts also make it their top choice due to its durability. Nevertheless, you should know that stainless steel isn’t impervious to all types of corrosion. It should come as no surprise that stainless steel parts in your industrial or commercial space will often show signs of rust and corrosion problems.
What are the factors that cause stainless steel to corrode? There are several factors that can start the corrosion of stainless steel. Considering there are hundreds of stainless steel alloys, one of the factors below may cause one alloy to corrode but may have no impact on another.
- Strong Chlorides: It causes pitting corrosion in many types of stainless steel alloys.
- Transplanting Plain Iron or Steel: Particulate residues from plain steel or iron can get deposited in stainless steel alloys and cause bimetallic corrosion.
- Environmental Factors: Moisture content and salt build-up can affect stainless steel alloys in coastal locations. Some alloys get discolored after a lot of exposure to dry elements.
- Temperature Extremes: Stainless steel alloys usually have a very high melting point, around 1,200˚F. But that doesn’t mean stainless steel isn’t affected by extreme temperature. When exposed long enough, this steel’s ability to naturally resist corrosion gets reduced over time. Thus, you may see rust build-up in old stainless steel parts in your factory or commercial space.
- Galvanic and Bimetallic Corrosion: Sometimes two dissimilar metals get welded together during production. It’s a common mistake that causes bimetallic and galvanic corrosion.
At Raider Painting, we consider all of the factors that can corrode stainless steel. We select the appropriate stainless steel coating depending on the factors mentioned above and the type of alloy we’re working on. There is no single stainless steel coating that will work for all types of alloys. Our crew members have extensive experience and can identify the right kind of stainless steel protective coating you’ll need.
Coating Steel to Prevent Rust
We use industry-approved techniques for coating steel to prevent rust. Our process includes surface preparation where contaminants are removed via abrasive blasting. During this phase, excess particles such as moisture, oil and dust are removed along with steel parts that show signs of corrosion. Our team uses non-metallic media free from iron particles to prevent future contamination.
Our experts also perform proper profiling in order to anchor the substrate to the product. We select the matching protective coating for steel. As the liquid coating flows into the surface profile, the coating locks into place until it properly cures. Further, our team’s expertise extends to selecting the correct media to establish an ideal material profile.
We use the appropriate type of metal coatings depending on the type of metal surface. These solutions maintain the structural durability of steel and other metals while keeping your equipment looking its best.
Some of the stainless steel protective coating methods and rust prevention we use include the following:
- Galvanizing: Using this method of rust prevention, iron and steel objects are coated using a layer of zinc, which prevents water and oxygen from reaching the metal. Zinc is also a type of sacrificial metal since it oxidizes first before the underlying iron or steel.
- Coating: With this, liquid paint is applied on metal surfaces to prevent rust. It’s the most cost-effective and easily accessible coat available. Our team uses different types of paint formulas depending on the type of material.
- Powder Coating: Powder-based substances are used in an electrostatic process. The powder is electrically charged in opposing polarity to the metal parts that need to be coated.
Our Raider Painting team use the appropriate steel protective coating to prevent rust for commercial and industrial applications. Talk to us today to find the solution that suits your needs and budget.
Machinery Coating Services
There are several types of machinery coating that can be used to prevent rust build-up. Our team uses the most applicable coating solutions depending on the type of machinery we’re working with. Some of the machinery coating solutions we use include:
- Epoxy coating
- Alkyd enamel
The goal is to use the correct coating to form surface adherence that will last for many years. Our team will discuss the options with you during the consultation.
