An Analysis of the Benefits of Using Industrial Coatings for Chemical Resistance

Industrial Chemical Resistant Coatings

The industrial world is one that involves a lot of exposure to harsh chemicals. This can be in the form of cleaning agents, solvents, and even acids. As seen with the recent chemical spills around the nation, these chemicals are extremely toxic and can have disastrous

consequences if they are not handled properly. Industrial chemical-resistant coatings provide a layer of protection that helps to prevent these chemicals from getting into the environment or having an effect on people. It is essential for businesses to use quality industrial coatings that meet the highest standards in order to ensure safety and compliance with regulations.

What Kind of Protection do Industrial Coatings Offer?

All of these chemicals can cause serious damage to equipment, infrastructure, and people if they are not properly protected. This is where industrial coatings come in. Industrial coatings are specialized materials that are applied to surfaces to provide protection from wear, corrosion, and chemical damage. Chemical resistance is a crucial property for industrial coatings, as it can protect against the harmful effects of chemicals.

Chemical processing facilities build containment areas to provide an additional layer of protection should a chemical spill occur. As noted in the pictures below, this containment area safeguarded the surrounding metal structures from corrosion and hazardous chemicals. We were able to prepare the surface and apply an industrial coating for optimal chemical resistance.

What are the different types of coatings?

There are many different types of industrial coatings available on the market, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. We provide a list of coatings we install (click here). Epoxy-based coatings are very durable and resistant to chemicals, but they can be difficult to apply evenly. Polyurethane-based coatings are easier to apply evenly, but they may not be as durable as epoxy-based coatings. Coatings can be reinforced with Fiberglass or Special Chemical Resistant Concrete. There are many other types of industrial coatings available as well, each with its own unique set of properties.

Which Industries Use Industrial Coatings?

Industries that commonly use industrial coatings for chemical resistance include the food and beverage industry, the food and pharmaceutical industry, Chemical Processing Industry, Pulp and Paper Industry, Power Generation Industry, and the semiconductor industry. These industries rely on industrial coatings to protect their equipment from the damaging effects of chemicals.

In the food and beverage industry, for example, industrial coatings are used on food processing equipment to prevent contamination and spoilage. In the pharmaceutical industry, industrial coatings are used on drug manufacturing equipment to prevent cross-contamination between products. And in the semiconductor industry, industrial coatings are used on silicon wafers to protect them from damage during fabrication.


There are many other examples of industries that have benefitted from using industrial coatings for chemical resistance. These stories show that there are real benefits to be gained from using these coatings in manufacturing and industrial settings. Chemical resistance is an important property for industrial coatings and can provide significant benefits for companies that use them properly.
