Industrial painting has many more uses than decorative painting and painting. Perhaps the most common application for industrial painting is to protect equipment, machinery or commercial facilities against corrosion.
Due to the intensive nature of industrial processes, mechanical components can fail in just a few months without adequate protection, especially when outdoors. A layer of suitable industrial paint also makes surfaces fireproof and waterproof and also saves energy.

As spray painting specialists, we can help refurbish your commercial property or equipment using a range of industry leading industrial paints. In addition, our team is reliable and professional and will manage the entire work process from start to finish.
There are two correct answers to what industrial painting is: it is a painting technique that protects machines, equipment or buildings from rust, but also makes them look good!
Substrate is the preparation of the surface to be painted. Painters must ensure that the substrate is properly cleaned for smooth and accurate painting.
The industrial paint must be primed and thinned for proper application and coverage.
Professional industrial painters use many different techniques to apply paint. These include:
Rolls: works best for wide, flat surfaces such as floors or walls
Air sprayg: paint is applied as a fine mist or spray which gives a smoother finish compared to other methods
Airless syringes: use higher blow pressures, so they are more effective at covering large areas, but also require the user to wear personal protective equipment
Brushes: although this method is the most time-consuming, it is sometimes the only way to paint small details effectively
Electrostatic application: the paint can be bonded to a surface using electricity – a very efficient process that requires expertise
Industrial spray painting is a quick and economical way to apply high quality paint coatings to a large number of different surfaces. Here are some important ones advantages of industrial painting:
Area of application
Industrial painters work with different types of paints that offer a high degree of control and uniform coverage on surfaces such as wood, metal, plastic and fiberglass.
If you are painting a large surface such as a commercial floor, ceiling or roller shutter, industrial spray painting can cover a large area very quickly. This can reduce the time it takes to complete a job, minimize downtime for your business and reduce costs.
Another popular industrial painting system is HVLT (high volume, low pressure) which uses a light air turbine instead of a large air compressor to supply the air to atomize the paint. The air is supplied at a much lower pressure and speed. This means that the amount of overspray and material waste is greatly reduced compared to conventional surface painting – resulting in a much cleaner spray environment.
Industrial painting systems provide a smooth surface that withstands wear and tear and harmful corrosion. Color particles in the form of tiny droplets are ejected upon pressure to produce a mirror-like or factory-like finish on a variety of surfaces. These include commercial ceilings, shop windows, cladding and other surfaces that require a tough, fast-drying paint.
A recruitment process is demanding and it requires both competence and experience to master it effectively and with good results.
