Adelaide Industrial Painters 101 By Australian Construction
If you are currently working on a project, it is a must that you consider Adelaide industrial painters. Along with making sure that the construction’s framework is well-made, you should also ensure its external appeal to whoever may see it.
This is a vital part of a project’s construction. This is done not only to achieve the ideal appearance but also to protect its surfaces from external threats.
This being stated, give Australian Construction a call if you need help in the task. Later on, we are going to discuss our services and what you can expect from us throughout the project.
What is industrial painting?
Before we go on to what our team can do for your project, let us first talk about what industrial painting is really about.
To simply put it, industrial painting is the process that involves painting the surfaces of an infrastructure. These infrastructures may be as small as a piece of furniture to as big as multi-storey buildings. This is done to make them look pleasing, and at the same time, provide a protective coating.
The paint types to be used are not restricted to regular paint only. These can include varnish, gloss, and the likes, all depending on what the project requires.
Here are the related skills that our painters are equipped with:
- Knowledgeable about the different kinds of paints and methods
- Has adequate experience in the field
- Skilled in formula mixing
- Ability to determine the project’s needs and how to attain them
Industrial painting is a very versatile process. This can be done on literal standing infrastructures, automotive, on man-made sights, and even on natural landmarks.
Our team at Adelaide Industrial Painters greatly believes in the importance of the process. We are continuously learning about the different ways that we can perform innovations to keep up with the constant changes in the field.
Now, for the next sections, we are going to move on to what our industrial painting services include. Keep in mind that these are arranged chronologically. In addition, it is important to remember that the succeeding processes will only take place once a plan is completed.
Surface Cleaning and Prepping
The first step on our list involves the preparation of the designated surfaces. As we all know, no matter what task is at hand, it is most recommended to start with a clean slate. This is needed to ensure a more efficient painting process throughout the project duration.
Here are the benefits of doing this:
Prepping the area beforehand will remove all the possible hindrances that the painters may encounter.
This may include dust, dirt, spider webs, stickers, screws, and other unnecessary items that may have been placed previously. If these are not eliminated, the final output may have uneven paint or missed in-between spots.
Provides a More Workable Space
Another advantage of this process is that it provides a working space that is ready for the upcoming renovations. This allows the painting process to fully hold on to the assigned areas, and may even increase its life over time.
This process can be done normally or with extra measures if the surface requires. Although some may find this insignificant, we take this very seriously.
After we prep the working space, the next process that we have to take involves taking care of our equipment. This includes paint, brushes, coatings, mixers, etc. In this step, our task is to make sure that we have everything that will be needed to finish the project.
Below are some advantages of this step:
Makes the Process Faster
Preparing all the necessary things before we start assures a faster project duration. The reason behind this is because our team can immediately have access to all the colours and coats without having to perform additional sub-processes in between the painting procedures. This will also eliminate unnecessary painting steps from the equation.
Helps Painters Keep Track of Requirements
Preparing these will help ensure that all the equipment is ready to be used and integrated with the working areas. Doing this will also avoid the possibility of experiencing a shortage while working.
Note that the materials that we will prepare will vary on the client’s needs, suggestions, and/or requests.
Moving on, once all the preparations are done, we can now continue towards the application process. This is the part wherein the area/s involved in the working environment will be processed to achieve the clients’ desired outcome.
This, however, is not a one-step process. Here are the types of paints that we will install if we consider the general case scenario:
The process that involves applying a primer is called priming. This will serve as the undercoat and the base for the required colour. Usually, this is a white primer paint because it will provide the desired saturation of the next coat.
The pre-finishing paint, on the other hand, involves the required colour stain. These are the ordinary paints that most see in constructions. The colour of this will depend on the given plan.
Finally, we have a protective coating. This is somehow similar to a gloss which will protect the existing surface from being damaged. This will increase the current output’s durability and life.
Like what we have stated before, this is not a fixed process. We may install less or more depending on what is agreed upon by our contractors and clients.
The last step, and is definitely not the least, involves reviewing the final outcome to see if it fits the description given by the clients.
Here, we will examine if there are any steps that we missed, any bald spots, or if there are weak surfaces that need to be retouched. This is done to eliminate any underlying issues caused by the painting process.
Summary: Adelaide Industrial Painters
Industrial painting is important, not just because it builds a structure’s aesthetic, but also because of its protective capabilities. Without this, your infrastructure’s surfaces may be nothing but a plain, boring cement.
