There are countless worthwhile applications for your products when it comes to employing industrial coatings. Numerous industries turn to us for polyurea coating systems. From marine applications to oil and gas uses, protective coatings can be applied to various materials, creating a protective layer that offers improved durability for the material beneath.
One industry that sees a vast collection of uses for protective coatings in the construction industry. For those working in this field, the applications of protective coatings are almost endless. From simple and small solutions, such as added protection for toolboxes, to much bigger applications, such as coating an entire parking lot, we provide unique industrial coating solutions for various construction needs.
Check out the following five ways industrial coatings could benefit your next construction project, and reach out at any point to learn more about how we can tailor-make a solution for your specific needs.
#1: ADDED LAYER OF PROTECTION FOR THE JOBSITE
Protective coatings can be implemented in the world of construction by improving safety and protection on the job site. Creating a safe and efficient job site in the construction industry is a must. From ladders and scaffolding to the toolboxes toted around the job site, ensuring everything is running smoothly makes all the difference.
You can add industrial coatings to ladders and any area where solid footing is necessary. The coating will protect the material it is applied to, but it will also create an anti-slip surface. This can help keep everyone moving quickly at your job site with a decreased risk of falls.
You can apply coatings to toolboxes and truck beds that see a lot of wear and tear. This will help keep the items protected from corrosion and abrasion. This allows everyone to work effectively without worrying about a jagged hole in a toolbox or a weakened trailer bed.
#2: INSULATING YOUR NEW BUILD
Whether you are building in a hot or a cold climate, proper insulation on any new build is key. Good insulation ensures that less energy will be needed to ensure comfort when the building is occupied. One of the best ways to insulate a building is with polyurethane foam insulation. This form of insulation has a tremendous R-value, which means that it will provide extreme energy efficiency compared to traditional fiberglass insulation.
Not only will it offer incredible insulation, but polyurethane foam is an environmentally safe product. It will last for decades without deteriorating and is simple to apply. Through a quick spray-on process, you can drastically increase the value of your new build without getting off schedule. This makes it a great choice for any residential or commercial build.
#3: PROTECTING DRIVEWAYS AND PARKING LOTS
From a small residential driveway to a large commercial parking lot, if your construction project involves pouring concrete or constructing another parking area, it is worth considering the addition of a protective coating. Industrial coatings can help these large surface areas last longer with less maintenance.
A protective industrial coating can guard a parking lot or driveway against many common damages. Check out a few of the ways this coating can seal a parking area:
- Corrosion: Vehicles are notorious for leaking chemicals and fluids on the ground. This can lead to corrosion over time. An industrial coating offers corrosion resistance, even against the toughest chemicals.
- Weather: Mother nature can pack a punch. Protect driveways and parking lots from ice, rain, and all the weather brings with an impenetrable coating.
- Abrasion: From tires to foot traffic, any parking area or driveway will undergo abrasive force. An industrial coating can protect against this.
#4: CREATING A WEATHER-READY ROOF
When it comes to taking the brunt of weathering, the roof of any building is the first line of defense. Having a properly sealed roof is a vital part of finishing a build. Commercial roofs, in particular, can aid greatly from the addition of an industrial coating. This coating will guarantee that the roof is protected against the elements, as well as improve the energy efficiency of the building by trapping conditioned air inside.
The coatings we have designed at ArmorThane are extremely cost-effective and will leave behind a waterproof, UV-stable barrier. They can conform to any roof shape, size, or slope. They will add a protective seal to corners and cracks on existing roofing systems and guard against leaks. For this reason, an industrial coating makes a great choice for ensuring the life of a new or old roof.
#5: WATERPROOFING FOR A SOLID FOUNDATION
Finally, protective coatings can be used for waterproofing foundations in the construction industry. Water is notorious for causing a large amount of damage to foundations. Adding a protective layer that makes a building’s foundation water-resistant is a great way to ensure the longevity of a building. After all, what could be more important than having a solid and protected foundation at the base of any build?
