Coating steel Ireland; for industrial use
Industrial steel coating aims at cost efficient solutions which protect steel substrates from deterioration by providing maximum durability with minimum need for maintenance. It goes without saying here that corrosion protection plays a particularly major role.
To protect steel from corrosion due to weather conditions, other environmental hazards and industrial chemicals it can be treated with various steel coatings.
Steel coating is also used to repair parts. This is generally less expensive than replacing them, and because coatings can often be applied on-site, it can also be faster and more efficient, with minimal equipment downtime.
Coating steel with 5 different methods
To enlarge the durability of steel parts, preserving is very important. Five different preserving methods exist:
- Shot-blasting and miniating: offers protection during transports and short periods outside
- Wet painting: alkyd resin, epoxy or polyurethane spray paint is applied to the materials
- Powdercoating: an environmental-friendly process whereby a powder layer is cured in an oven
- Galvanising: where a piece of steel is dipped into a bath of molten zinc
- Metal spraying and duplex systems: the most durable application of coating colours preventing corrosion
You can coat steel with these (and other) method to achieve the specific result you require. Whether you want to restore steel to new-like levels, enhance their performance or greater wear resistance and durability, coating steel is the way to go. A steel coating contractor will always work with you to determine the best coating materials, method and cost effective solution.
Fact: Metal is often used as a synonym for Steel, but they are not the same. Iron is a metal, just like copper, tin and silver metals. Steel is iron, but has an addition of 0.1 to 1.7 percent carbon. Therefore, steel is an alloy between iron and carbon.
Steel coatings with special purposes
Next to preserving, you can coat steel with conductive, dielectric, or thermal barrier coatings that enhance their performance in challenging or specialized applications. For example, intumescent paint for steel. This fireproofing coating expands when exposed to high temperatures.
Another example is conductive coating for steel. This coating is electrically or thermally conductive. Thus enhancing the conductive properties of a substrate or preventing electrostatic discharge.
