ARC Protective Coatings

Efficiency & Protective Coatings

Where? On metal and concrete – with proper product selection, surface preparation, and installation, composite coatings have the ability to protect against erosion, corrosion, abrasion, and chemical attack. Thought leaders in the chemical, ethanol, pulp and paper, power, metals and mining, food and beverage, refining industries, as well as water and wastewater plants leverage these products to extend the life and improve performance of their vital assets. Applications include:

  • Metal repair/rebuilding
  • Pump performance /energy efficiency
  • Rubber lining repair
  • Ceramic tile replacement
  • Concrete protection & walkway safety slip prevention
  • Secondary containment protection

Why? Used to extend the useful life and efficiency of equipment to enable the plant to operate in the most reliable state. Typical value received includes:

  • Abrasion Resistant – proven to outlast hardened metal surfaces or hard metal overlays. Mitigate the impact of abrasive-wear to process equipment and critical infrastructure (MX1).
  • Restore worn equipment and damaged concrete surfaces previously considered irreparable
  • Provide cost-effective, long-term corrosion prevention compared to exotic alloys and conventional coatings
  • Increase operational efficiency, frequently resulting in higher sustained output
  • Extend the service life of new and in-service equipment
  • Rapid return to service, based on use of quick cure materials

How? Our wide range of composite coating offerings for troweled, painted, or spray options with different characteristics allow for the proper selection for your application.

Considerations: Proper material selection based on the maximum operating temperature, desired erosion resistance, abrasion resistance, corrosive chemicals or gasses in the application, as well as the substrate. Another selection criterion is time available to cure, determined by availability and turnaround time of the asset.
