For protection against corrosion, Blasting company Koop can apply different types of coating. Due to the great diversity of utilised coating systems, we can compile a suitable coating advice for any application, from the petrochemical industry up to the food industry. This is done per specification or in consultation with the customer.
A few examples of the possibilities: epoxy coatings, refractory coatings or coatings with high chemical resistance. We can apply the basic layer (primer) as well as the intermediate coat and the coating in any desired (RAL) colour. It is also possible to have a colour created.
Apart from conventional varnishes, we can also apply ceramic varnishes (concerning possible hardness criteria). Blasting and Coating company Koop can issue a coating report or warranty certificate for the work performed.
The dimensions of our spray booth: (LxWxH): 50 m x 14 m x 8.5 m. We can also carry out blasting on-site.
Blasting and Coating company Koop can apply a preservation coating to surfaces by means of flame-galvanising or metal-spraying. But also TSA (aluminising) is possible. When applying these methods, a zinc or aluminium wire is melted in a flame. The consequential liquid metal is deposited on the surface to be treated and attached to it. The zinc or aluminium oxide film is less noble than metal and, as such, provides cathodic protection, which means that the sprayed layer gradually ‘surrenders’ and serves to protect the construction. It is therefore a particularly effective way to combat rust.
In any case, flame-galvanising/metal-spraying can only be applied to perfectly blank material. Therefore, it had best be done immediately after blasting.
Powder coating is an organic top layer, applied by means of electrostatic spraying. The powder is baked in an oven and will flow out to a solid coating. This can be applied in several layers.
Powder coating is widely used for, for example:
– Engine frames
Powder coating is eco-friendly because, during the application, no volatile organic vapours are released whereas the benefit is that after muffling it can instantly cool off and be used.
The dimensions we can handle in our oven, are (LxWxH): 7 m x 3 m x 3.5 m
