Techniques

Fireproofing

By applying a passive fire protection coating, a steel construction can withstand high temperatures for a longer period of time, allowing for a safe evacuation.

Pieces of 48 m length have been treated by us with TSA for SHELL and are transported by water from our quay.

Blasting

Blasting involves forcible propelling or spraying a stream of abrasive material, such as sand, grit or soda, against a surface under high pressure, thus removing rust, contaminants, mill scale and old layers of paint.

Spraying

Spraying is the most commonly used method for the application of protective coatings.

Pre-treatment and protection

Before a corrosion resistant coating can be applied to an object, the surface first has to undergo pre-treatment to improve bonding. Various techniques are available for both the pre-treatment process and the application of a protective coating:


Each method affords specific possibilities and advantages. We will gladly assist you in making the right choice.

Metallizing

A painted coating is not the only way to protect steel. A thin layer of pure aluminium, zinc or a metal alloy could also be used. Metallizing offers protection for a period of up to 50 years.
