Industrial Coatings

Thermal Sprays. Epoxies. Urethanes. Powder Coating.

Equipment and parts represent a significant investment for any business. When equipment fails, the costs of low productivity, repair, or replacement significantly impact your bottom line. Protect your most valuable assets with a protective industrial coating.

APS built our business working with the oil and gas industry. We have decades of experience applying industrial coatings to industrial parts and equipment. If you’re a manager in the oil and gas, water and wastewater, construction, or any other industry and need industrial coatings, we have the technology and experience to get the job done. 

Industrial Coatings

Compared to paint, industrial coatings are specifically engineered for their protective properties. Paint will give equipment some degree of protection against moisture and oxidation, but it can’t provide the level needed in industrial environments. The proper industrial coating application makes your equipment and parts highly resistant to:

  • Extreme heat
  • Extreme cold
  • Exposure to flames
  • Exposure to water and condensation
  • Impacts
  • Corrosion, oxidation, and rust
  • Abrasions
  • Chemicals
  • Bacteria, mold, and mildew

Applications for Industrial Coatings

The majority of industrial coatings are used for corrosion control on equipment, exposed steel, and concrete. The most common markets and applications for industrial coatings are:

  • Oil and gas valves
  • Pumps
  • Compressors
  • Farm equipment
  • Exposed steel beams
  • Machine tools

Types of Industrial Coatings

APS is a leading Little Rock industrial coating and industrial painting contractor. We have decades of experience in the application of many different types of industrial coatings. There are just a few that we work with.

  • Thermal Sprays – Zinc and aluminum
  • Epoxy – Can be used in a variety of thicknesses. Cures at room temperature or higher.
  • Urethane – Lasts longer than other coating systems. Holds up well to U.V. exposure and has good color retention.
  • Powder Coating – Tough, durable, colorful, versatile, scratch, and chip-resistant.

How we Apply Your Industrial Coating

Industrial coatings require special surface preparation compared to paint. Poor surface preparation leads to blistering, peeling, and discoloration from underlying containments. Basic surface preparation and coating application includes the following steps:

• Proper surface preparation as recommended by the coating manufacturer
• Application of the primer per coating manufacturer recommendations
• Intermediate coat or finish coat as specified, applied as recommended by the coating manufacturer
