Blasting & Coating Services
Industrial Coating Applications
At our facility in Brantford, Ontario, we can apply any type of protective coating including metalizing (thermal spray) with a wide variety of both traditional and sophisticated state of the art, heated plural spray equipment.
We are especially skilled in applying:
- 100% solids epoxies
- Vinyl esters
- High temperature acrylic
BLASTECH is an approved applicator for major companies such as: Enbridge, GE, OPG, Siemens and TCPL. BLASTECH is also an approved applicator for all major coating companies including: Akzo Nobel, Benjamin Moore, Carboline, PPG, Cloverdale, Dulux, DuPont, Hempel, ICI, Jotun, Sherwin-Williams, Tnemec and Valspar.
Due to the ever increasing pressure from agencies monitoring and setting the acceptance levels of VOC emissions, chemical companies, spray equipment manufacturers and independent research companies are developing new coating technologies.
Our large heated drying/curing room ensures that regardless of weather conditions we are able to meet our production delivery schedules year round.
Our services are highly sought for corrosion protection in the mining, oil, gas and fracking industries. However, we frequently provide our blasting and painting services to other industries as well.
The safe process of removing a coating system with hazardous lead content can be accomplished with the correct containment. BLASTECH has performed numerous lead abatement projects without health, safety & environment incidents or violations. We use pre-job training and daily monitoring to ensure all employees and surrounding area are safe from contamination.
All waste and debris from our surface preparation activities are processed to meet all environmental codes and requirements. Known toxins such as lead are specially registered and treated before safe disposal.
Fireproofing is a protective coating that can be applied to various steel fabrications to improve the material’s resistance to fire. These coatings offer a different level of fire/heat resistance and are chosen based on 4 principles:
- Fire Type – Heat level/temperature of the fire
- Section Factor – Speed at which the steel heats up
- Critical Core Temperature – Acceptable heat level/temperature of the steel
- Fire Rating – Time it takes for the steel to reach the Critical Core Temperature
BLASTECH has successfully applied acrylic and epoxy fireproof coatings. Generally, shop applied fireproofing reduces overall project costs and improves schedule in comparison to field applications.
BLASTECH is able to arrange assembly, packaging and provide storage of customers product and parts when requested.
