The Uses of High Performance Coating Systems

 

One of the biggest problems we all have when priming or finishing a surface is the painting and material don’t last. These are frequent problems most people just assume they have to get used to and perform routine maintenance to address them. Advancements in technology are changing this approach using what is known as high performance coating systems. These are paints and coatings that withstand the extreme pressure of the sun, wind, rain, and snow. It is standard in bridges, schools, playgrounds, buses, subways systems, warehouses, manufacturing plants, and healthcare facilities. They blend the protection and colors to match the environment in a way that ensures you don’t worry about it coming off. There are numerous uses it provides to ensure your surface is protected for many years to come. 

 

  • Paint

 

 

Places where there are high amounts of traffic and people are ideal for high performance coating systems. They are perfect in facilities such as schools, hospitals, and restaurants by reducing the coats of paint. It can be washed repeatedly and does not peal or tear apart over a period of time. For commercial projects, these types of finishes are ideal and offer a level of protection you cannot find elsewhere. It is superior and perfect for them to ensure you only have to do the job once using a single coat. 

 

For example, in storage buildings, the walls are made up of concrete, masonry, and drywall. The high intensity of usage is a big problem and in most cases, requires continually repainting over a period of years. These solutions require less work by applying the paint in one coat and it can be washed with a hose and high pressure sprayer. There is no need to worry about it coming off and these techniques offer levels of protection that lasts for many years. 

 

  • Primer

 

 

In most cases, painting any type of surface requires using a primer to absorb into it and offer that added levels of protection against the elements. High performance coating systems uses a pressurized primer that is stronger than those in the marketplace to give that additional protection. Normally, it is applied as the first coat on surfaces such as drywall, concrete, and masonry. Then, a single coat of paint is sprayed on to give that professional look and feel with the durability you require. 

 

 

  • Minimizing Inventory

 

 

One of the biggest problems many contractors face is they must keep an inventory of various paints and primers. Most jobs require more than one coat and they don’t how much they will need until working on it. High-performance coatings use a multi-surface acrylic that is durable and flexible for different exterior and interior surfaces. It provides stain resistance on a variety of surfaces and is extremely flexible when a contractor is working on the job. The coatings are quick-drying and are ideal for hotels, manufacturing facilities, warehouses, healthcare facilities, and schools. Contractors can buy just a small amount and it goes a long way in many different projects to offer the protection and quality they demand. 

 

 

  • Sealant

 

 

Any kind of finish requires having long-lasting protection that seals and prevents the elements from taking control. High-performance coatings contain epoxy that resists corrosion and protects the original material of the wood, metal, concrete, or drywall. These applications are useful in offering that additional sealant with one coat. In many cases, using traditional techniques, a primer, paint, and a sealant are applied in several coats to provide less protection for the surface. Then, it has to be repainted and sealed within a few years after finishing the job. High-performance coatings require one application to offer years of protection from the sun, wind, rain, and snow. 

High performance coating systems are the most effective solutions for finishing any project and give you extra protection levels. There are numerous uses for it, including paint, primer, sealant, and you maintain lower inventories. The result is it offers benefits you can’t find with traditional solutions in the marketplace.
