You will find a wide variety of industrial paint products with very different purposes, among which are:
- Corrosion protection, against chemicals or against abrasions.
- Resistance to impacts.
- Resistance to marine or industrial environments.
- Anchorage on surfaces of difficult adhesion.
- Finishes with different degrees of brightness.
- Finishes with different textures.
Industrial Painting Process
The choice of the industrial painting process is carried out depending on the protection and finish that the piece in question needs, in addition to always taking into account the customer’s requirements.
1. Primer. This product is used to leave the perfect surface to be painted. What it does is create a layer of greater adhesion on the surface to facilitate the fixing of the paint. It is a product that has to be used before painting. In addition, it creates a layer that prevents the piece from rusting. Within the primer, we can find different types:
- Anchor primers for porous surfaces. This is a very good primer for porous surfaces; that is, they do not have enough grip for the paint to be fixed.
- Fill primers. This product contains a high thickness; that is, it creates a sufficiently fat layer to paint the piece and facilitate its painting.
- Primers for plastics. The plastic parts do not grab the colour, so it is essential to add a primer.
2. Finishing enamels. They are the paintings that you will finally use and that provide the final look. Within the finishing enamels, we find different types. They can be in the form of varnishes or colours and with different textures, glitters, satin, matte.
- Air-dried synthetic. It is synthetic enamel that is allowed to air dry. You do not need an oven for drying.
- Nitrocellulose. This product contains a super-fast drying formula for greater application.
- Acrylics. Within the acrylics, we can find a single component or two components. The difference is the need to use a catalyst.
- Polyurethane. Plastic paint.
- Epoxy. It is a type of enamel that creates an ultra-dry, fast-drying layer that produces greater adhesion on metals. This product is widely used for areas where greater friction occurs. In addition, it can be used both to protect against corrosion and to improve paint adhesion.
