Pretty much anyone can paint a wall, but Painters USA prides itself on tackling the most intricate, difficult industrial painting and coating jobs. Manufacturing plants and other industrial facilities must handle heavy use, and in some cases the added burden of weather and climate. In addition to protecting capital investments and complying with safety regulations, neglect and deferred maintenance can be costly, leading to citations, unexpected shutdowns and production downtime, costly repairs and fixes, even lawsuits or medical claims. 

Industrial surfaces prepped and painted to perfection

Painters USA is an interior and exterior industrial painter who will work with you to create customized painting and coating solutions. From 30-foot high ceilings to weathered concrete silos to old machinery coated in grime, we will get the job done to meet or exceed your expectations.

As an industrial painting contractor, Painters USA has extensive experience painting all kinds of fabrication and production facilities, indoors and outdoors.

Contractor services for interior industrial painting

With vast experience in painting manufacturing facilities, we help plant managers hit and sustain their maintenance goals. This is just one of the many factors that set us apart from other industrial and commercial painting contractors.

Manufacturing facilities have high ceilings that include beams, pipes, and other fixtures. They have expansive walls and floors that can be as busy as big city streets. Many operate with little or no downtime, and all of them contain valuable assets and resources like equipment, raw materials, products, and skilled workers.

Painters USA is aware of all these traits. Our experienced crews are ready and able to tackle the interior surfaces of any industrial facility:

Cleaning and surface preparation

Grease, oil, and dust can prohibit your manufacturing facility from operating at peak levels. Our crews know how to make you shine.

Ceiling painting

Painting your ceiling in a manufacturing area makes the workspace brighter & safer for your employees.

Wall painting

A fresh coat of paint in any area of your commercial or industrial property does a lot for employee morale – especially in the winter.

Logo and corporate color painting

Contractor services for exterior industrial painting

With the unpredictable climate and continuous change of seasons, it is important to protect your exterior industrial facilities from the elements. We assure that every outside surface receives the proper preparation and coating application for long-lasting endurance:

  • Specific preparation, like abrasive blasting, to even out rough spots, remove surface contaminants, enable paint bonding, and even reshape some surfaces.
  • Appropriate primer on bare substrate or rusted surfaces. 
  • Suitable coatings specified for your particular needs. 

Some painting contractors may take less care when working outdoors, but not Painters USA. For every exterior industrial project, we protect adjacent surfaces, fixtures, machinery, and landscaping.

Heavy duty industrial applications

Heavy-duty industrial painting requires heavy-duty care and attention. That’s why we seek full knowledge of all your requirements. Only then can we work with you to choose the right materials and solutions. When the work gets going, it’s done by well-trained technicians who perform every step with product knowledge and proper techniques. 

Heavy duty work involves many services, key among them:

  • Urethane cement resurfacing for withstanding heavy use and equipment.
  • Tank linings, repair, maintenance and corrosion protection to keep tank contents safe.
  • Rust encapsulation to keep metal parts and surfaces from deteriorating.
  • Containment system coatings to keep them in good condition and prevent injuries or expensive damages.

Because heavy duty industrial facilities are risky, with many potential safety and environmental hazards, they are closely monitored by local, state, and federal agencies—US Department of Agriculture, OSHA, and Environmental Protection Agency to name a few.

Protect your heavy equipment and facility capital investments with long-lasting coatings, applied safely and effectively by Painters USA.

Industrial painting customer examples

Exterior: Construction material company silo painting

A large construction material manufacturing company in Illinois had six silos that were beginning to rust around the bases and the exterior paint was chalking badly.  The project also included the repair and coating of the inside bottom portion of the silos, which required confined space certification. Coatings had to be applied in proper weather conditions, and our painting crew had to follow safety rules at all times. Hard hats, safety glasses and steel toe work boots were worn at all times. Safety harnesses were worn by certified Aerial Lift Operators during all lifts.

Material Silo Painting In Illinois

Project scope and process included the following:

All surface preparation was in accordance with the appropriate SSPC specifications, allowing us to provide coating manufacturers’ suggested warranty recommendations. And we provided technical data and SDS sheets for all products.

The company’s silos are now protected against deterioration due to the seasonal corrosion of wind, rain and snow that are typical in Illinois.

Interior: Painting for preventative maintenance plan

A cardboard box manufacturer needed to freshen up their well-worn machinery and equipment like conveyors and catwalks as part of their newly instituted preventative maintenance plan. For example, machinery covered in grime and oil often disguises underlying problems like hydraulic leaks.

Machinery & Equipment Cleaning & Painting

Project scope and process included the following:

Our combination of cleaners and industrial urethane coating made the machines look years younger. A machinery and equipment cleaning maintenance program was introduced to keep everything looking new and performing at high levels for longer lifespans.

Interior: 20,000 square feet painted in multiple company brand colors

An area of a marine engine manufacturing plant had become discolored with grease and dirt. At the same time, the client wanted the refresh to include their official corporate colors. 

Our task was to thoroughly clean the ceiling, walls, and piping and apply new coatings that would be durable and long-lasting, and also reinforce the company’s brand for employees and site visitors. The project began with a client meeting to plan the hours we could complete the project and other details.

Interior Painting of a Manufacturing Plant

The work entailed:

The entire area is now much brighter and safer, with piping brought to OSHA color coding standards. The client was very pleased with the outcome and our ability to meet their tight timeline and has invited us back for other projects.

FAQs

What is the difference between industrial and commercial painting?

While both deal with business properties, they differ in function and priorities. Industrial painting applies to working structures like factories and warehouses and heavy industries like mining and oil and gas. The coatings and painting process must stand up to harsh conditions and support safety and production goals. For exterior surfaces, like tanks and silos, climate and weather conditions are another factor. Customer presence is sporadic, if it happens at all.

Commercial painting involves space and properties that serve customers directly, such as retail stores, restaurants and hotels. While durability and safety matters, it’s also important to support corporate branding and create a positive, customer-friendly setting. 

What are the different types of industrial paints?

Industrial paints are used to protect and maintain a variety of surfaces in industrial buildings and structures like concrete and masonry, asphalt, plasterboard, metal, fiberglass, plastic and more. Industrial paint types include acrylic, epoxy, polyester, polyurethane and silicate. Specialty paints that are anti-static, heat resistant, fire retardant and rust preventive are also available.

Industrial paints are applied with spray systems for large surface areas or with brushes or rollers. It’s important to work with an industrial painting contractor with the knowledge and experience to recommend the most suitable paint type and application process for the job. 

What are the different types of industrial coatings?

The most common coating types are urethane / polyurethane, epoxy, alkyd, acrylic, and zinc, which is a specialized, high-performance coating used on surfaces prone to rust and corrosion. It’s important to work with an industrial painting contractor that understands the differences to recommend the most suitable ones for your needs and budgets. 

What is NACE coating certification?

This is one of 23 certifications administered by the NACE Institute in disciplines like general corrosion, general coatings, pipeline, and various specialties. Certification includes classroom study, discussion, and hands-on practice. Areas with specific focus include corrosion control, paint application and inspection, and project management.

What is rust encapsulation and how does it differ from rust removal?

Rust encapsulation is applied to surfaces that have a bit of rust to prevent further rust formation. Rust remover works by removing existing rust from a metal surface. 

What types of abrasive blasting are good for industrial cleaning?

Blasting depends on several factors that should be discussed based on your needs, but common types include:
