Coatings for all Industrial Projects in Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee and Ohio

An Industrial Coating is a paint or coating defined by its protective, rather than its aesthetic properties, although it can provide both.

Coatings for all Industrial Projects in Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, and Ohio

The most common use of industrial coatings is for corrosion control of steel structures such as offshore platforms, bridges, and underground pipelines. Other functions include intumescent coatings for fire resistance.

The most common polymers used in industrial coatings are polyurethane, epoxy and moisture-cure urethane. Another highly common polymer used in the industrial coating is a fluoropolymer. There are many types of industrial coatings including inorganic zinc, phosphate, and Xylan and PVD coatings.

NACE International and The Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC) are professional organizations involved in the industrial coatings industry.

Industrial coatings are often composites of various substances. For example, Xylan dry-film lubricants are composites of fluoropolymers (typically PTFE, PFA, and FEP) and reinforcing thermoset polyimide and polyamide binder resins initially suspended in a variety of solvents (such as ethyl acetate, xylene, dimethylformamide, and N-methyl 2-pyrrolidone).

Industrial Coating Applications, Uses, and Specifics

  • Protective Coatings
  • Corrosion Control
  • Floor Coatings
  • Multi-Spec Interior Coatings
  • Exterior Texture Coating
  • Caulking and Sealants
  • Aesthetic Applications
  • Agricultural Coatings
  • Machinery Coatings
  • Corrosion Control Coatings
  • Environmental Coatings
  • Concrete Coatings
  • Metal Coating
  • Safety Coating
  • Acoustical Coatings

A typical coating system may include a primer, an intermediate coat, and a top coat. The polymer film acts as a physical barrier between the steel substrate and the corrosive environment such as atmosphere, water, and soil. Industrial coatings are also available as garage floor coatings such as epoxy, polyurea, and polyaspartic.

Why UV-PCO Technology will change your facility maintenance plan forever

Ultraviolet Photocatalytic Oxidation (UV-PCO) technology sounds space age, doesn’t it? In truth, it’s nanotechnology in action. It uses light — from the sun or fluorescent fixtures — to activate a mineral in our products called titanium dioxide (TiO2). The TiO2 quickly breaks down organic molecules, such as grime, bio-film, smog and VOCs, that are then washed away with the rain. Because the process never uses up the TiO2, the self-cleaning process can happen over and over again, even with just one application.

National Painting & Coatings Company Supplying Protective Coatings For Massive Cleveland Innerbelt Bridge Project

Epoxy intermediate coating Macropoxy 646 provides high-gloss protection from harsh Northeast Ohio weather for vital city artery

A leading National Painting & Coatings Company Supplying Protective Coatings was chosen by Atlantic Painting (Oak Lawn, Ill.) to supply high-performance protective coatings for the Ohio Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) I-90 Innerbelt Bridge project. Coating work is now underway on the 1.8 million square feet of steel that comprise the westbound span over the Cuyahoga River. Reconstruction of the bridge, which opened to traffic in 1959 and is the main east-west artery into and through downtown Cleveland, is the largest project in ODOT’s history. The new bridge, which is north of the existing span, will be 4,247 feet long and stand 120 feet over the Cuyahoga River Valley at its highest point.   Tank Lining & Coatings Kentucky Indiana.

To give the bridge a high-gloss finish and protect the structure from the harsh Cleveland elements, Sherwin-Williams will supply Macropoxy 646, an epoxy intermediate coating, and HP DOT Acrylic Polyurethane, a high-gloss top coat in off-white, for the project. The company is also providing Zinc Clad IV organic epoxy that will be used by Atlantic’s field painters to touch up the shop-primed steel sections and splice plates. More than 26,000 gallons of coatings will be used for the project.

“ODOT needed high gloss, a low film build of 2-4 mils with higher-build performance, superior weathering, and ease of application,” said  regional market director, bridge & highway,  “These products will achieve all of those requirements. As a company headquartered for nearly 150 years in Cleveland, it is gratifying to be an asset protection partner on an infrastructure project that is such a vital link to the city from points near and far.”

Although not all states require steel bridges to be coated, ODOT does stipulate protecting its bridges in this manner.   Bridges in Northeast Ohio must stand up to some of the most rigorous inspections there are, given the constant expansion and contraction caused by thermal cycling, and exposure to road salt and airborne contaminants from Lake Erie winds.

The project design and product specifications address these issues. Because of the level of degradation and corrosion that can occur at structural joints, ODOT wanted to limit their number. The old bridge had joints at every one of the 14 piers, but in the new design there are only two.

In addition, QUV accelerated weathering tests (5,000+ hours of UV exposure is Ohio’s standard) and field experience document the superior gloss retention of the topcoat, which doubles the maintenance-to-recoat cycle. “Our testing demonstrates gloss retention even after 9,000 hours of exposure. This considerably extends the lifecycle of the coating and provides unprecedented value for the taxpayers,” he noted, saying the bridge would likely only need to be repainted two or three times during its design life of 75 years.

The project is unusual in several ways. ODOT used a value-based design-build approach (vs. design-bid-build) for the first time, to expedite the work and minimize disruption to both local motorists and those traveling between Chicago and the Northeast US.

In addition, the bridge’s architecture has distinctive delta-shaped girders that complement the Cuyahoga Valley topography without dominating it. The design teams that competed for the work were evaluated on their ability to deliver on not just cost and an ambitious schedule, but also on preserving the aesthetics that define this part of Cleveland’s landscape. The project was awarded to general contractor Walsh Construction in partnership with HNTB Corporation, the lead architectural and engineering design firm, and HDR, the independent quality engineering firm.

A global protective and marine coatings company that delivers smarter asset protection and unmatched service and specification support to its customers from 4,000 locations worldwide.  From alkyds to zincs, the company offers a complete line of time-tested, high performance  Industrial coatings, Commercial Paints and systems to combat corrosion, supported by the largest group of NACE-certified coatings inspectors in the industry.  Serving Kentucky, KY Indiana, IN West Virginia, WV and Tennessee, TN.

Asbestos Removal & Abatement – General Information

Asbestos Removal & Abatement from

Commercial Buildings

Structures containing asbestos are marked.
Weathering of fibrous asbestos sheeting showing loose fibres.

A typical  asbestos enclosure.
Many buildings contain asbestos, which was used in spray-applied flame retardant, thermal system insulation, and in a variety of other materials. Asbestos was sometimes “flocked” above false ceilings, inside technical ducts, and in many other small spaces where firefighters would have difficulty gaining access. Structural components like asbestos panels were also used. In residences, asbestos was often a component of a type of flocked acoustic ceiling called popcorn ceiling or “cottage cheese ceiling”, until its production was banned in the U.S. in 1978. However, the ban allowed installers to use up remaining stocks, so houses built as late as 1986 could still have asbestos in their acoustic ceilings. The only way to be sure is to remove a sample and have it tested by a competent laboratory.

Depending on how and where asbestos was applied, it might not pose any risk to most users of the building. If the fibers cannot become dislodged, they cannot be inhaled, and thus the asbestos poses no risk.

However, some methods of applying asbestos, particularly flocking, allow asbestos fibers to gradually drop off into the air. Asbestos poses hazards to maintenance personnel who have to drill holes in walls for installation of cables or pipes.

Even if the workers are protected, such maintenance operation may release fibers into the air, which may be inhaled by others. Interventions in areas where asbestos is present often have to follow stringent procedures.

When asbestos fibers can easily be made into airborne dust, the material is known as friable. For example, a popcorn ceiling is extremely friable, whereas asbestos floor tile is considered non-friable.

Different countries have different regulations and methods of enforcement, when it comes to asbestos removal. It is extremely important to remember that prior to any asbestos removal procedures taking place; the client has a duty of care and must verify that the specialist removal contractor can provide the following: proof of license if licensing is required within the jurisdiction; proof of specific asbestos public and employer liability insurance; proof of worker training to include supervisor and contract manager training within 12 months; proof of worker fit-testing and medical surveillance, within 12 months; proof of specialist equipment testing within 6 months – DOP and PAT within the EU. Optionally the specialist contractor should be able to provide accreditation from ARCA or other such trade organization.

If removal is to be performed when users are still present in the building, it is usually necessary to relocate some users temporarily. Typically, the part of the building from which asbestos is being removed has to be sealed off in order to prevent contamination of the other areas. Methods of sealing off an area often include the use of Polyethylene film, duct tape and negative air pressure machines which are fitted with HEPA filters. The idea is that the contained area is pulling fresh air in as to not allow asbestos fibers into the surrounding environment.

Only a special vacuum cleaner that’s designed for asbestos containment (class H) can be safely used when cleaning up during and after asbestos removal. Ordinary vacuum cleaners cannot be used, even those fitted with a HEPA filter.   An ordinary vacuum cleaner will expel the asbestos fibres into the room air.

If the building is closed to normal users, it may be necessary to seal it off from outside atmosphere so that no accessible air is contaminated. Examples of asbestos removal enterprises include the Jussieu Campus (begun circa 1996 and still going on as of 2005) and the Tour Montparnasse (in 2005, projected duration was three years if the tower was emptied of its users, and ten years if it were not).

Removal is not the only means of asbestos abatement. Asbestos and asbestos-bearing materials may be “enclosed” or “encapsulated” to prevent building occupants from being exposed to the fibers.

An asbestos-containing building that is to be torn down may have to be sealed (see third picture on right), and to have its asbestos safely removed before ordinary demolition can be performed. The asbestos removal may take longer and cost more than the actual demolition. For example, the former seat of parliament of East Germany, the Palast der Republik, was stripped of most of its asbestos between 1998 and 2001, before it was finally demolished starting in 2006.
