High Performance and Intumescent Coatings

Home » Challenges of Industrial painting in confined spaces

JMA Commercial Painters have a unique skill set in industrial paint settings that include both high performance coatings and intumescent coatings. These types of paint require special knowledge and when used properly can add to the structural integrity, soundness, and health impacts of the facilities/structures they are used on.

High Performance Coatings:

The primary purpose of a high performance coating is protection of steel and other metal structures. This type of paint creates a surface that is not easily destroyed; it specifically protects against abrasion, corrosion, physical use, or excessive exposure to harsh chemicals. It works by creating a durable barrier between the metal itself and its environment. High performance coatings extend the surface life of structures and allow for easy upkeep in environments that require a safe and clean atmosphere.

While most people think of offshore rigs and other large industrial structures when thinking of high performance coatings, any place that gets a lot of use or needs to be kept clean and safe is an excellent candidate for a high performance coating. Some examples where high performance coatings are necessary are: hospitals, sporting arenas, restaurants, hotels and other places that need to be cleaned regularly with harsher chemicals. 

Intumescent Coatings: 

Intumescent coatings resemble high performance coatings and are used in many of the same settings. Intumescent coatings can be applied to structures as an aesthetically pleasing fireproofing method. The intumescent sodium silicate expands in the paint, forming a layer of insulation which slows down heat transfer. This allows the paint itself to work to provide fire resistance to various materials that it’s applied to. You can use these types of coatings on commercial plastic, structural steel and serve more to fireproof a factory and ensure that there is less chance of a fire breaking out in an industrial or commercial setting. These types of coatings are usually used on buildings, aircraft, ships and offshore oil construction. If you work in an industry where a fire is a big possibility, then using these types of coatings can help to prevent fires from spreading and reduce the risk of losses for your business.
