Intumescent Coatings

Intumescent coatings are specialised paints that have gained popularity in recent years due to their exceptional fire protection properties.

These coatings are specifically designed to protect steel and other structural materials from the effects of fire by expanding to form a thick, insulating layer when exposed to high temperatures.

This unique property makes intumescent coatings an essential component of any fire protection system.

At Global Coatings, we specialise in the application of high-quality intumescent coatings that offer unmatched protection against fire

Intumescent coatings are designed to provide passive fire protection to steel and other structural materials by providing a barrier that resists heat, flames, and smoke.

This is particularly important for items that are protecting critical components or for structural steel.

We take pride in our ability to apply coatings that meet and exceed the highest industry standards and specifications, making us the preferred choice of engineers, architects, and contractors.

Surface Preparation, Metal Preparation & Structural Surface Preparation

Global coatings are able to provide a range of blast media to suit the majority of industry surfaces and preparation requirements from corrosion removal, cleaning and preparation for the addition of various paint systems.

Grit Blasting Services by Global Coatings

Grit blasting, also known as abrasive blasting or sandblasting, is a surface preparation technique that involves propelling abrasive particles, commonly referred to as grit, at high velocities against a surface. This process removes contaminants, such as rust, paint, and scale, while creating a uniform profile for improved adhesion of coatings and treatments.

Blast Cleaning

Global Coatings specialise in blast cleaning, as an effective and versatile surface treatment method used across various industries to prepare surfaces for cleaning and finishing.
