What are Chemical Resistant Coatings?
Chemical resistant coatings are paint products used by commercial and industrial painting contractors to create surfaces which can handle exposure to chemicals without wearing out and deteriorating. Regular paints are not designed to withstand frequent contact with strong chemicals. However, certain areas (food processing plants, chemical plants, hospitals, schools etc.) are often exposed to higher levels of chemicals and thus require a unique paint coating which will provide chemical resistance.
Why Choose Chemically Resistant Paint?
Standard paints will simply not last as long when in contact with harsh chemicals. Discoloration, swelling, blistering, softening, and peeling often occur when paint experiences damage from chemicals. If an area is at risk of coming into contact with cleaning detergents or other chemicals, chemical resistant paints are the best options
Where Are Chemical Resistant Coatings Used?
There are many settings (both commercial and industrial) which benefit from chemically resistant paints, including the following:
- Chemical Plants – Chemical resistant paints are a must for chemical plants. Floors, walls, ceilings, piping etc. in a chemical plant can be protected with these durable paints.
- Food Processing Plants – Due to the use of harsh cleaning detergents, food processing plants (as well as commercial kitchens) require tough, chemical resistant paints to stand up to the wear and tear.
- Retail Buildings – Heavy traffic and frequent cleaning makes chemical resistant paint a good option for retail store floors.
- Medical Facilities – Medical facilities often use chemically resistant paint coatings because they require frequent cleaning with strong detergents.
- Schools – The high traffic and need for constant cleaning makes schools a good candidate for chemical resistant paint coatings.
- Restroom Facilities – Restrooms are exposed repeatedly to strong chemical detergents used to disinfect and clean.
