Surface preparation is the essential first stage treatment of a steel substrate before the application of any coating, and is generally accepted as being the most important factor affecting the total success of a corrosion protection system.

The performance of a coating is significantly influenced by its ability to adhere properly to the substrate material. Residual mill scale on steel surfaces is an unsatisfactory base to apply modern, high performance protective coatings and is therefore removed by abrasive blast cleaning. Other surface contaminants on the rolled steel surface, such as oil and grease are also undesirable and must be removed before the blast cleaning process.

The surface preparation process not only cleans the steel, but also introduces a suitable profile to receive the protective coating. Paint specifications usually comprise a sequential coating application of paints or alternatively paints applied over metal coatings to form a ‘duplex’ coating system. The protective paint systems usually consist of primer, undercoat(s) and finish coats. Each coating ‘layer’ in any protective system has a specific function, and the different types are applied in a particular sequence of primer followed by intermediate / build coats in the shop, and finally the finish or top coat either in the shop or on site.

We enable contractors to provide ‘best value’ service to maximise coating performance over structure life and to reduce whole life costs.


Steel pipelines are used all over the world for cross country transport of natural gas, crude oil, water, petrochemical and petroleum products at high pressures over long distances. These pipelines are protected against corrosion by external and internal coating systems

External coating primarily acts as a barrier between the pipe and its surrounding environment. It is one of the main methods used to protect pipelines from corrosion – often used in conjunction with cathodic protection – and can also provide thermal insulation.

An internal coating can be applied to reduce friction within a pipeline and enable smoother product transmission, resulting in increased product throughput, reduced operational costs, faster commissioning, and corrosion protection in storage. Internally coating a pipeline also causes less wear to pigs during runs.

Depending on customer specifications, we offer Liquid epoxy coating or Special anticorrosive painting.

  • Suitable for fresh and salt water immersion
  • Effective for speeding up production
  • Suitable for corrosive environments
  • Resistant to many solvents and chemicals
  • Resistant to cathodic disbondment

Tanks Coating

Years of service and chemical corrosion can harm the inside of tank preventing it from properly protecting its contents. Tank lining and coating is a key factor in preventing not only product contamination but also corrosion.

A wrong choice of tank surface preparation may result in lack of adhesion, solvent entrapment from applying multiple coats too quickly , soluble salt contamination, and/or inadequate ventilation and post cure requirements.

We ensure you to get the best possible surface preparation and provide a broad spectrum of surface coating solution of industrial tanks. Our services include standard surface preparation, internal and external coating application.

Vessels Coating

Pressure vessels are probably the most complicated area to protect. Besides the pressure itself, there are challenges in the chemical processes in the vessel and the temperatures that often accompany them, and it is important to be clear on the exact needs.

Metal Coatings supplies refineries and gas companies with safe, durable and cost-effective coating services for petrochemical corrosion protection that we also perform on a variety of substrate types. These cutting-edge coatings provide resistance to corrosion and abrasion, while protecting surfaces from galling, seizing and other metal surface damage.

Our teams strive to enhance personnel and equipment safety while offering superior, expedited service to fit the needs of the petrochemical industry.


Marine paints and coatings are applied to commercial and military ships (for both salt and fresh water), fixed and floating marine structures such as offshore oil rigs, and recreational boats and yachts. Included are passenger ships, freighters, tankers, container ships, fishing boats and ferries, as well as oil rigs, inland waterway ships, barges and tow boats.

Marine coatings are designed with particular functionality properties to best protect and preserve the surfaces to which they are applied.

Coatings are applied in accordance with paint manufacturer’s guidelines with all necessary criteria being met prior to commencement of coating and of course carefully complied with during the coating process.


A coating for steel that can give a highly decorative finish. It works by expanding in a fire, creating a dense char and keeps the failure temperature of the steel below its critical failure level for periods of up to 2 hours.

Safe, durable and affordable, Intumescent fireproofing is a thin film coating that is applied directly to a variety of otherwise unapproved building materials, allowing them to meet fire code, fire rating and flame spread requirements.

Intumescent fireproofing coatings are used indoors and outdoors, can be environmentally friendly and have been proven in service over many years. Intumescent high performance paint can keep construction costs low while preserving focal points and building character.

Our crews utilize specialized surface preparation and application techniques when applying fire retardant coatings to doors, columns, and structural steel or as a coating for fire stops, ducting voids and other smoke and fire prevention applications.


It is our mission to build up a sound business relationship on the basis of reliable work at moderate rates executed with in the specified time schedule.
