Coating Specification

Imms Industrial Coatings works closely with suppliers to develop specifications that fit our client’s needs. Some factors that can influence a selection of a coating system include:

• Exposure
• Operating conditions
• Substrate type
• Ambient conditions during application
• Environmental regulations
• Time constraints

Protective Coating Application

A protective coating is any material that when applied to a surface will resist the service environment and prevent serious breakdown of the substrate. Imms Industrial Coatings Inc. specializes in putting a barrier between a corrosive environment and the material to be protected. Our clients have a variety of reasons to paint from corrosion control, fireproofing, waterproofing, safety, color coding, to appearance. Imms Industrial Coatings Inc. has the experience and technique to apply:

• Alkyds
• Acrylics
• Epoxies
• Polyurethanes
• Zinc Rich
• Advanced 100% solid hybrid coatings
• High heat

Surface Preparation

The performance of a coating is affected by proper surface preparation; it is the foundation that a coating system is built on. Coating integrity and service life will be reduced because of improper surface prep. The selection and implementation of proper surface preparation ensures coating adhesion to the substrate and a lengthy service life. Imms Industrial Coatings Inc. offers all of the following options:

• Hand tool cleaning
• Power tool cleaning
• Water blasting
• White metal blast
• Near white blast
• Commercial blast
• Brush off blast
• Solvent cleaning
• Steam cleaning
• Acid etching

Wet Abrasive Blasting

Imms Industrial Coatings Inc. uses wet abrasive blasting systems to limit dust to undetectable levels and provide a cleaner surface for a paint system to adhere. The wet abrasive blasting system uses water combined with abrasive to catch the abrasive after contact with the substrate, weighing the dust down. This limits the amount of dust created. The water also provides a method of washing away the steel contaminants helping the adhesion of high performance coatings.

Shutdown Planning & Manpower

Imms Industrial Coatings has a fully trained staff of experienced painters and project mangers to meet your goals during shut downs for maintenance. We can craft a work plan that can pave the way for our crews to successfully complete time critical projects safely.
