Types of Industrial Paint

Save

Household paints serve a decorative purpose, while the main purpose of industrial paints is to protect steel and concrete, prevent corrosion, and even aid with equipment mobility. Industrial paints are used in a variety of commercial settings, including automotive factories, construction sites, and even prisons.

Phosphate

  • Phosphate industrial paints act as primers. You apply them before other types of industrial paints to increase corrosion protection and keep sliding parts properly moving.

Intumescent

  • Intumescent paints are fire retardants. When applied to steel beams, intumescent paints create a barrier that prevents fires from spreading. This makes them useful in many manufacturing settings.

Fluoropolymer

  • Fluoropolymer industrial paints are applied to fasteners, so they're naturally non-sticking and resistant to friction. They're also resistant against corrosion, abrasion and chemicals.

Polyurethane

  • Perhaps you've already used polyurethane in your home. You can use it on wood furnishing or even certain types of floors. It provides a hard, glossy finish that's resistant to corrosion and chemical exposure.

Thermal Epoxy

  • Thermal epoxy paints are ideal if you need resistance to abrasion. They also protect against corrosion from harsh chemicals.
