A Guide to Understanding the Different Types of Industrial Coatings

Industrial painting is commonly used in facilities of every type, from warehouses to high-volume factories. The right industrial coating can prevent corrosion, extend the lifespan of your equipment, and much more. That’s why selecting the proper one for your facility is essential.

Here the industrial painting specialists from Arthur Cole Painting Corporation have highlighted some of the most popular types of coatings and what makes them distinct.

Epoxy Coatings

Industrial coatings made from epoxy provide a host of benefits for applications in a number of different environments. Consisting of an amine curing agent blended with an epoxy polymer, the epoxy coating forms a strong bond to a variety of surfaces. It’s often used in applications where there are higher temperatures and in more extreme environments.

Alkyd Coatings

Alkyd coatings are most often used for industrial and OEM parts because of their resistance to so many different environments. Additionally, they can be customized to be used for interior, exterior, underground, and underwater applications. Since they need to be permeable to oxygen, they tend to have a longer drying time than other alternatives, however, heat can be applied to speed up the process.

Zinc-Rich Coatings

To prevent corrosion, zinc-rich coatings employ zinc dust in their pigment to make them more durable. This type of industrial coating is often reserved for steel because, in addition to its anti-corrosive properties, it also provides a galvanic and polymeric barrier for machinery.

Acrylic Coatings

One of the quickest-drying industrial coatings, acrylic solutions offer a unique, high-gloss look that’s quite appealing. It can increase your machinery’s corrosion resistance and also makes a good adhesion-promoting primer.
