High Performance Coatings
High performance coatings are something we do a lot of and when you find a system that works well it sells itself.
We did some coating work for the Olympic Trials Pool in Omaha a few years ago and that system has proven to be very effective.
We are in the process of doing several projects this year and just completed a set of exterior stairs in the old market. They were in very bad shape and had obviously been neglected for some time.
We used an epoxy primer and an aliphatic top coat. Amerlock Sealer From Pittsburg Paints and Amershield . Both of the products are in a class all by themselves.
We spend the necessary time to prep the surface by grinding, sanding and wire brushing the surface. Then a vacuum and solvent cleaning. The surface gets one coat of a 2 component primer followed by two 2 component top coats. There is a recoat window on the finish coat that must be followed. In the mid 80’s it must be recoated within 12 hours.
The results were great. we have several more projects in the old market yet this summer!!!
The next project outside of the old market will be coating some steel at Stratcom.
