Industrial painting for chemical processing plants.

Chemical manufacturing companies can rely on Painters USA for safe and experienced painting, coating, and flooring services.

Whether chemical processing is what you do or chemicals play a big role in your industrial operations, these reactive and potentially hazardous materials require a safe and orderly environment across every building component.

Painters USA is widely experienced and knowledgeable about paints, coatings, and flooring requirements for the chemical processing industry. We have OSHA-trained crews, extensive product knowledge, decades of proper application experience, and all the equipment and infrastructure necessary to work in exacting environments. Safety and compliance with all regulations are paramount in every project we do.

Common types of chemical corrosion

Painters USA is familiar with the most common types of corrosive wear and tear in chemical plants:

Extensive training and certifications combined with decades of chemical plant experience enables the NACE-certified inspectors at Painters USA to spot problems that other contractors often miss. We can also safely reach areas that are difficult to access.

Surface prep for any structures and surfaces

Proper industrial cleaning and surface preparation are critical steps in any chemical plant painting or coating project. Painters USA commonly uses pressure washing with detergents and chemicals to neutralize the surface and remove visible and non-visible contaminants

We may recommend abrasive blasting using an appropriate blasting medium for the surface and operating conditions. If abrasive blasting is not practical, we can use manual cleaning methods. While this increases upfront costs due to additional prep time, it saves time and money in the long run by maximizing performance and service life.

Whichever industrial cleaning method we use, once the surface is decontaminated, we address failed areas. Existing coatings are removed to an acceptable condition for adherence and feathered if necessary, which is a technique that creates a gradual transition from a tightly adhered coating to an exposed surface.

Coatings for primary and secondary containment

Painters USA will give special consideration to your primary and secondary containment systems, to keep these critical storage tanks protected from coating breaches or “holidays” (holes or voids, often undetectable without a qualified coating inspection) that could lead to corrosion and leaking.

OSHA, the Environmental Protection Agency, and many industry standards have regulations and requirements for containment systems that store potentially hazardous materials or waste. We will play our part in helping you with all your compliance obligations, and that includes doing our work safely, in accordance with OSHA recommendations and requirements.

Long-lasting, corrosion-resistant coatings

Modern coatings have been formulated to resist corrosion from any sources or operational conditions. Painters USA will choose the right solution for your needs and priorities:

Safety considerations in chemical processing facilities

Due to the risks of toxicity and flammability, painting and coating projects in chemical process plants require a focus on safety, during the project itself and to leave the site enhanced for workplace safety. OSHA requirements for chemical handling are lengthy and stringent, as even trips and falls can have added complications and consequences in places where hazardous chemicals are stored and used.

In addition, chemical processing facilities are often exposed to climate and environmental extremes and temperature variations from freezing cold to high heat. With offices in Texas and Illinois and national account experience, we have experiencing dealing with all these conditions.

We’re happy to offer consulting and guidance on painting techniques to enhance workplace safety and protect worker health, including OSHA color coding for piping systems, reaction vessels, and storage tanks; anti-skid floor coatings; and markings to identify locations of fire suppression and firefighting equipment and emergency treatment areas like eye wash or shower stations.

Cleaning, coating and flooring services for chemical plants

Abrasive blasting

Our NACE certified coatings inspectors utilize sandblasting to achieve the proper profile on the substrate, maximizing coating adhesion.

Industrial flooring

Urethane cements, slurries, and epoxies can hold up to even the heaviest of traffic and internal processes you employ.

Line striping and markings

Whether it is for safety or lean manufacturing reasons, our line striping services will enhance your factory floor & contribute to workflow.

Mold remediation

Getting rid of all traces of mold so it doesn’t come back is just part of it – finding & fixing the source is just as important.

Non-slip flooring systems

Slips, trips and falls are a leading cause of workplace accidents. Make sure your employees are safe with non-slip floor coatings.

OSHA color coding

OSHA requires a specific color coding to indicate what each pipe contains for quick, universal identification.

Power / pressure washing

This service can be used for just cleaning your surfaces or as the first step in our painting process.

Silo and tank painting

Ethanol plants, refineries, & storage facilities have relied on us for years to protect their structures & the contents inside.
