What are Protective Coatings?
Protective coatings have been in existence for many years. In the early 2000’s, the true protection mechanisms of protective coatings were understood, and the reality that protective coatings was much more complex led to improvements in the way paint was used to protect metal and concrete.
The durability of protective coatings relies heavily on several different factors. These being design, preparation, application, technique and the environment. The standard that provides a guide to these issues is AS/NZS 2312:2002 titled the “Guide to the protection of structural steel against atmospheric corrosion by the use of protective coatings”.
Modern protective coatings are highly specialized. To keep abreast of these developments, we liaise closely with the leading paint manufacturers and belong to the global organization AMPP (The Association for Materials Protection and Performance) AMPP is the world’s leading organization focused on the protection of assets and performance of materials and is active in more than 130 countries and has more than 40,000 members. It is headquartered in Pittsburgh USA.
