Choosing the Right High Temperature Paint Applicator

November 19, 2014 | By | No Comments

Within the industrial field, there is often a need for high temperature paint applicator. Most machines operate at very high temperatures, although paint that is resistant to those high temperatures might not be the only thing they need. Sometimes corrosion is an issue too. So when it comes to choosing a company to apply your high temperature paint, how can you be sure that the company you select will help you choose wisely? Here are several tips to help you know what to look for.

    • In the beginning of the process, make sure that they are taking all aspects of the application into consideration. If corrosion is going to be a problem, then that needs to be taken into account before the proper paint is selected. You need a coating that not just resists high temperatures but also the type of corrosion that will be an issue for that particular application.

  • Make sure that the company is certified. Any company can claim to be ahigh temperature paint applicator, but you need to make sure that they are certified. Applying high temperature paints and other types of industrial coatings requires a high level of special knowledge, and if they aren’t certified, you just don’t know what you’re going to get.
  • How knowledgeable are their representatives? It can seem nearly impossible to navigate through all of the various coatings and paints that are on the market. The industrial world is just filled with coatings that have varying degrees of properties, and only an expert can help you determine which type of coating is the best one for the type of application you need.
  • Try to determine what their track record looks like. Do an online search for the company to find out what their reputation looks like. Do they have a long list of satisfied customers, or are there a number of problems lurking in their past? Many companies that do high temperature paint applications also have satisfied customers who would be happy to speak with you about how well the company has performed for their jobs.
  • Ask how much experience they have. Knowing how long a company has been in business is the first step in finding out how much experience they have in high temperature paint applications. This will tell you how long the owners have been in the industry. However, it is just the first step. You also need to know how long they have specifically been certified as a high temperature paint applicator. Also find out what kinds of standards they hold their own employees to. What level of knowledge can you expect from most of the people who work at the company?

Looking for any kind of industrial coating can seem nearly impossible, but it becomes much easier when you have a company you can trust to help you make the right decision. Only a company that is certified and knowledgeable about high temperature paint applications can not only apply the coating for you but also help you make the right selection in the first place.
