Specialist Coatings

More than just paint!

Specialist Coatings

Procoat don’t just paint! There are many products out there, each suited to different purposes and budgets. We have affiliations with many different coatings manufacturers, but are not biased to any one product, we are committed to finding the right product and right system to suit each job.

Imatec Ceramic coatings

Industries face adverse environmental conditions that attack components and structures, resulting in compromised plant reliability, reduced safety and lost profits. Imatech Abrasion and Corrosion is a leader in delivering ceramic coatings that provide superior protection from corrosion, abrasion wear and chemical attack to both metal and concrete surfaces

Hot spray Metalising

Metal spraying using Arc spray or Flame spray is an alternative method of coating with zinc (or many other materials) to hot dipped galvanising. All methods of metal spraying involve the projection of small molten particles onto a prepared surface, where they adhere and form a continuous coating. To create the molten particles, a heat source,

a spray material and an atomisation/projection method are required. The small molten particles are projected onto the surface to be coated. Upon contact, the particles flatten onto the surface, freeze and mechanically bond, firstly onto the roughened substrate and then onto each other as the coating thickness is increased.

Thermal spraying has proved itself to be extremely effective in its 90 years’ existence, in all manner of applications, ranging from engineering coatings in gas turbines to corrosion protection on park benches. It is particularly used to apply corrosion protection to large structures such as offshore oil platforms, bridges and construction steelwork. As a protective system for structural steelwork it is unsurpassed, being the only system recommended by International and European Standards EN ISO 14713, as giving greater than 20 years to first maintenance in very aggressive environments. Such environments include the marine splash zone (category lm2), as well as all other categories.

Galvanising steel is limited to corrosion protection using zinc, whereas metal spraying can also use, amongst other materials, aluminium, which is much more resistant to corrosion in areas typically exposed to salt such as oil platforms and road bridges. Nusteel Structures has been a customer of Metallisation for over 25 years and chooses the Flamespray process to protect its customers’ bridges and gantries from corrosion. Nusteel is one of the leading suppliers of steel bridge and sign gantry structures in the UK. Surface coating and finishing is undertaken at Nusteel’s purpose-built manufacturing facility in Hythe, where quality assurance procedures aim for zero defects.

Speedliner

In conjunction with Speedliner Mount Isa, Procoat can apply Speedliner!

Speedliner is a Poly Urea blend, designed as a coating for particularly fast wearing components, great for coating chutes, pipes, pump boxes, floats and tanks where there is high impact, abrasion or corrosion.

Boasting a tensile strength of up to 7500 psi and a tear strength of 1450 psi, it is the ideal products for those areas where paint will just not do.  Speedliner can, depending on the application replace the use of rubber, ceramic and UHB paint systems.
