A&I Coatings is supplying a lot of water borne coatings for steel

A&I Coatings is supplying a lot of water borne coatings for steel for projects such as the new atrium on 48 Martin Place.

The system was…

  1. Abrasive blast clean to Class 2.5
  2. Envirophos 2300 Zinc Phosphate Primer 75 microns
  3. Enviroset 2100 MIOX Epoxy Primer 200 microns
  4. Enviroflon 8480 Fluoropolymer Topcoat 60 microns

The fluoropolymer topcoat will ensure a great looking finish well into the future.

It is reasonably estimated that the cost of repairing inadequately protected  coated steelwork once it is installed on site is roughly ten times the cost of preparing and coating it in the factory initially. In other words it is much cheaper to do it right the first time. A stitch in time saves nine.”
