Protecting investments with high performance coatings
Blastech is a custom industrial coating applicator based in Brantford, Ontario that specializes in the application of high performance coating systems. We are experts in metalizing (thermal spray coating/TSC) and liquid coating applications, including zinc, epoxy, polyurethane and polysiloxane. Typical processing involves components such as structural steel, custom fabrications, tanks, vessels, ducts, panels, plate and pipe; however, we have the capability to process virtually anything.
Blastech has provided corrosion protection for mining, oil, and gas industries for 25 years. Presently, many of these industries are booming in Ontario with large scale pipe line projects and wind energy projects popping up all over Canada. You can be confident your project is in good hands as we are an approved applicator for General Electric (GE), Siemens, TransCanada Pipelines (TCPL), Enbridge and Ontario Power Generation (OPG). BLASTECH has become an industry leader in surface preparation and coating application by enforcing strict quality assurance through our policies in accordance with NACE and SSPC. Surface preparation is typically performed by sandblasting or use of other materials such as steel grit or shot, aluminum oxide, garnet, glass beads or other non-metallic abrasives if requested. Once the blasted surface is inspected and approved, the industrial coating system is applied. Coating systems vary from a simple alkyd primer to standard zinc, epoxy, polyurethane systems to complex metallic fluoropolymer systems. Each project receives documentation signed by a NACE level 3 inspector which is stored and readily available in Blastech's database.
Our project management team is continually improving our techniques and tailoring our process to achieve results that exceed customer expectations. We strive to build long-term relationships with each customer based on accurate scheduling, in-depth quality assurance and competitive pricing.
