Churchill supply and apply Industrial coatings to many structures. The most common use of industrial coatings is for corrosion control of steel structures such as chimneys, gantries, and bridges. Other functions include intumescent coatings for fire resistance and chemical resistivity for steel bund and process tanks. The most common polymers used in industrial coatings are polyurethane,epoxy and moisture-cure urethane. Another highly common polymer used in industrial coating is a fluoropolymer. There are many types of industrial coatings including inorganic zinc, phosphate, and Xylan and PVD coatings
When specifying coatings it is essential to ensure that the physical, chemical and electrochemical condition of the substrate material, and the environmental conditions for the coating application are appropriate. There is a wide range of materials available, used for different purposes, Churchill provide specialist advice from experienced material manufacturers. Where necessary detailed technical specifications can be provided. On larger schemes trials would be prudent and are strongly recommended, and also where appearance and performance are critical. Additional testing may also be required to assess the performance of proposed coatings.
Churchill’s expertise in working at height and our ability to design bespoke access systems means that we are able to offer a cost effective protective coating solution to any structure regardless of location or operating environment.
Utilising our highly trained rope access and confined space teams, Churchill provide highly trained specialist skilled labour capable of undertaking surface preparation and the application of specialist industrial coating works.
