Corrosion Control and Protective Coatings

A&K’s Quality Control makes the significant difference when it comes to corrosion control.  JobNet, our proprietary quality control management system, provides our clients with daily in-depth and comprehensive updated project information. This kind of attention to detail and QC is not available anywhere else. A&K’s JobNet allows us to accurately provide a significant cost benefit for protective coatings application.

The most common use of industrial coatings is for corrosion control of steel structures of all types. Corrosion can cause numerous environmental and safety-related problems, degradation of structural integrity and add to a tremendous increase in maintenance costs. Protective coatings constitute the most cost-effective method of protecting steel structures and many substrate, such as floors, containment areas, equipment of all types, processing plants and in manufacturing.

Preparation is the critical first step and is achieved using various mechanical means, blasting and cleaning methods. Protective coatings are applied using specific methods that can include various spray application methods and many hand-worked application methods. Typical protective coatings systems include a primer, an intermediate coat, and a top coat. Accurate coatings application is critical to the success of the protection that the coating system provides.

Rely on A&K’s experience and expertise to provide the needed corrosion control solutions your projects demand.
